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.
