Alright, this week I refuse to talk about my dieting, exercise or health.  Today I’m going to share a yummy healthy snack idea: the Mighty Banana Shake

You know those nasty, black bananas sitting on your counter? You toss them because you know you’ll never be a super mom making banana bread… right? Well don’t toss them – freeze them and make banana shakes!

Here’s what you need:

1 frozen banana

3/4 c skim milk (or whatever you have on hand)

1 packet of splenda

a dash of vanilla extract

a sprinkle of cinnamon

Toss it all into your blender or if you are desperate like I am: a food processor and blend until creamy. Trust me, it really hits the spot, tastes yummy & refreshing and you feel like you just had a milkshake.

*Want a couple twists to change it up? Try adding cocoa powder, peanut butter, different seasonal fruits. If you are leaning towards the unhealthy blizzard type stuff think Reese Pieces – OMG!

Try it and let me know what you think!

Tara xoxo
