cool banana milkshake

you know what i found out?  overripe bananas don’t have to be thrown out.  apparently, everyone but me knew this.

no worries.  better to find out later than never, right?

since i only had one overripe banana and limited ingredients, i needed something simple.  after much googling, i found a few banana  milkshake recipes.  but i ended up just using those as bases for my own single-serving banana milkshake creation.  here it is:

cool banana milkshake:
1 overripe banana (frozen and cut into chunks)
1 cup of milk (i used 1%)
2-3 ice cubes
1 tablespoon of vanilla yogurt
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
sprinkle of cinnamon (optional, but recommended)

combine and blend all ingredients.  pour in a cup.  sprinkle extra cinnamon on top.

i honestly didn’t expect this to be as delicious as it was.  the ice cubes and frozen banana gave this a much-needed icy-ness that made it light and oh-so refreshing.  and the cinnamon was a perfect last-minute touch of unexpected flavor.  it was heavenly.
