Bananas Foster (no-sugar-added smoothie) "Milkshake"

This recipe is one of my all-time favorite breakfast treats! I swear it tastes like a Sonic milkshake but the ingredients are healthy breakfast staples that just do magical things when combined.

Wayyyy back when I was a kid my Grandpa Foster would make these for me every morning when he came to visit! That's why I call it Bananas Foster Milkshake. However, if you wanted to add cinnamon & rum (like traditional bananas foster) I'm sure it'd taste even better. Bam, you've gone from pre-school breakfast to poolside delight by adding 2 ingredients!

So the ingredients to this thing are pretty basic:

1 cup milk / 1 banana / 1 drop vanilla extract / 1/2 cup ice

Throw everything in a blender and you're done!

Getting freaky with it:

Lately we've been switching it up by substituting frozen watermelon for the ice. That's right, we're risk takers.

We've also been known to add frozen berries.

You can throw a raw egg in there if you want. That's how Grandpa Foster did em!

VEGAN: Works with rice, soy and almond milk too!

sounds awesome - you could also freeze the banana before blending it - makes it very creamy!

I am going to try this. It's actually modified from one I make for myself now! I freeze the banana the night before, blend the banana with i cup of milk and peaches and/or cinnamon. Now I'll have to add the vanilla extract. Thanks! :-))
