My Delicious, Healthy, Non-Dairy Milkshake!

I just made the best milkshake; it was refreshing and delicious! But that's not all! It also:

- is all natural

- has only 140 calories

- contains no dairy products

- has no sugar (except what is in the banana)

- has only 3 ingredients and is super easy to make

Here's how you can make it:

- Peel a ripe banana and break it into 1-inch chunks

- Freeze the banana for an hour or more

- Pour 1 cup of almond milk into a blender (you could use soy milk also, but I like the flavor of the almond milk)

- Add the frozen banana and 1/4 tsp. of vanilla

- You can add a dash of cinnamon if you want

Blend it up until there are no chunks of banana left. Pour it into a glass and drink it!

Yummy-licious! Enjoy!

(I think you could make it chocolate, too, by adding some unsweetened cocoa powder. I may try that next time!)

Perhaps with the chocolate, some peanut butter would be yummy

Oh my! I just made one but was a little short on the almond milk so I added a very small amount of leftover (cold) coffee - only about 2 Tablespoons. Wow! Wonderful! Tastes like a coffee shake!

Update - coconut milk is delicious, too!
