Banana Strawberry Shake


Summer means different things to different people in different parts of the world. Back home in India, I grew up in Chennai. I love Chennai but definitely not a fan of its summer which is too harsh and merciless. Scorching heat, raising tempers, sweats that wash away the little glow on the face that is left and to top it all, frequent power failures – is this enough for you to get the feel of it?! Like it or not – you are left with no option but to deal with it. It clasps you with its sweaty embrace that you can never really escape!

But now that I moved to Chicago, it is like the mighty sun has silently heard my curses all along and decided to show me now what it would look like without 'him'. It is already May and summer still looks like a distant dream in Chicago. I just cant wait for some sunshine. I have always dreaded summer but now no one can be more excited than I am for it.Whoof! The grass is always greener on the other side and the person who quoted this definitely knew a thing or two about the different climates in different parts of the world. 
So wherever you are, if you like summer or not- there is something we can do to make you happy – Milkshakes/Fruit Juices/Smoothies. Trust me; you are going to see lot more of these recipes in our blog for the next couple of months! When I say ‘lot more’ I mean ‘LOT MORE’  (you will soon know what it means ;)) Let us fight/rejoice (depends where you are)  the summer together.

So here is the recipe for banana strawberry shake -



Ingredients :

2 Bananas
8 to 10 strawberries sliced
Milk - 1/2 cup
Few Ice cubes
Sugar/Honey - As per your taste
Method :
Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend by adding more milk until smooth and desired consistency.
Note:
Adjust milk to get the milkshake of your desired consistency.
The number of bananas and strawberries are also totally up to you. Taste of strawberries would be prominent if you add more strawberries and same  with bananas

  5. Hi Ranjani,
    I love to make smoothies and this one is so delicious and easy to make. I always use bananas as a creamy base for my smoothies and just blend whatever fruits and veggies I have on hand with almond milk or coconut water, so I am delighted that you shared your Banana Strawberry Shake with us at the Plant-Based Potluck Party Blog Hop! I appreciate it!
