Fun recipe of the day!

I decided to experiment in the kitchen a little bit today. This recipe was so easy, I can't believe I didn't think of it before! The children loved it and it fell into my all time favorite category of "something yummy that doesn't contain sugar". Always a plus. And it's very quick to make. For me, that's a must.

Strawberry or Banana Milk

2 bananas or about 8 strawberries (fresh or frozen)
a glass of milk
1-2 Tbls of sweetener
1 tsp vanilla

Fill container (I used a measuring glass) with fruit. Pour milk on top. Then add sweetener and vanilla. Use a hand blender (or you could make this in your blender) to blend all ingredients. That's it!

Just a note, I used vanilla soy milk. So I didn't use the vanilla in mine. The banana milk was much sweeter than the strawberry. I added around 1 Tbls per glass to it and didn't add any sweetener to the banana. You could really use any fruit you wanted. I was going to try blueberry milk but had a crying baby. Priorities!

Try it and enjoy it! It's a great treat for a hot day. Yum!

Running the race,

Hi Amanda,

We do something similar at our home:

2 bananas
Milk

And depending on what I have I add...

honey or chocolate syrup or peanut butter, sometimes all of the above!

I know Marie and Merah, and I really enjoy your blog! :)
