Vanilla Milkshake

We've had triple-digit degree weather here on the Eastern Seaboard. It finally rained last night and this afternoon, breaking the unbearable heat. Summer is not nearly over, so I thought I'd share a vanilla milkshake recipe with ya'll so the next time it's blazing hot, you'll have a "go-to" drink!

This recipe is adapted from Raw Food Real World by Sarma Melngailis and Matthew Kenney
2 frozen bananas
2 cups non-dairy vanilla milk (I use almond milk)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 packets stevia (you can use raw honey or agave too, to taste)
pinch of sea salt
opt: 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract if you make your own milk or use a plain milk
Blend!
Always keep ripe bananas your freezer.
I run them under hot water until the peel comes off easily.
If you need more milk, just add it as the milkshake is blending.
This is a creamy, refreshing drink that you'll be drinking all summer long! Your children will beg you for it. Thank me later :-).

love,
Althea
