Mango Banana Milkshake

DSCN1582

There is an eternal battle in my mind when it comes to overripe bananas. “Milkshakes or Banana bread?” is the question.

Milkshake is easy to make, it has no fat and not much of sugar either. But if you have ever eaten a piece of banana bread, you will understand why I prefer it over any number of milkshakes.  Well, its yum, moist, sweet and soo good!

So I usually buckle under the pressure and make a banana bread.

Healthier the milkshake may be, but there aren’t any takers for it at my place. But jazz it up with a bit of this and that, the glass becomes empty before you even count up to 5.

Strawberries, mangoes, apples are all great additions to the regular banana shake. Today’s shake is a mix of mangoes blended with bananas and served in a tall beautiful glass.

Ingredients:

  • Banana                       :        2 medium
  • Mango                        :        1 big
  • Milk                             :        1 cup (or more per taste)
  • Sugar                           :        1 tbsp. (optional)

Method:

  1. Peel and dice the mango and banana.
  2. I like it thick, so I don’t add too much of milk. You can adjust this according to the consistency you prefer.
  3. Blend in a mixie jar or blender with milk and sugar. Done!
  4. Serve chilled. Makes two big glasses.
