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!
