Skinny Banana Blueberry Shake

I’m so excited about this Skinny Banana Blueberry Shake because it’s one of my best tasting shake creations!  I make shakes and smoothies often.  I don’t tend to follow recipes but instead I just throw a bunch of ingredients in the blender, usually whatever I have in the fridge.  Sometimes I have a winner and sometimes not so much.

I love getting inspiration from my fellow food bloggers, family, friends, professional chefs, you name it.  Have you ever heard of Sally’s Baking Addiction?  Sally may have a baking addiction, but I have an addiction to seeing what Sally’s been up to.  I’ve only been a blogger for about four months now and she has inspired me so much.  She gives great blogging tips, but you don’t need to be a blogger to love her site.  Even if you aren’t a blogger her site has awesome recipes and beautiful photographs for everyone to enjoy.  You don’t have to take my word for it, although you should, go and check her out yourself and see first hand.     🙂

A couple of months ago Sally made Skinny Banana Blueberry Muffins.  Well, her recipe inspired me to create a Skinny Banana Blueberry Shake.  This shake is a delicious way to get all the same flavors from the muffins in a convenient shake form!

Skinny Banana Blueberry Shake Recipe
(1 Serving)

Ingredients:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup skim milk

Directions:

  1.  Put all of the ingredients into a blender and mix well.

 

This is super simple and quick to make.  Add the ingredients and blend.  You really can’t get easier than that.

Yay, a tasty shake that I don’t feel guilty eating!  Shakes, even healthy ones, are filling.  I’m all for feeling full when I’m counting calories!  Eating healthy can be quite a chore.     😉

Shakes are a great way to get my daily dose of fruit and I love a shake that’s packed with fruit flavors, like this one.  Bananas and blueberries are an amazing combo.

Shakes often contain ice cream and/or additional sugar.  However, to keep in the spirit of a “skinny” (aka healthy) goodie, I used skim milk and honey instead.  I’m not missing the fat content because it’s still mad tasty.    🙂

The cinnamon gives this shake a little extra something.  It’s hard to explain so you’ll just have to try it.     😉

You can use frozen blueberries too, instead of fresh ones, if blueberries are out of season or you find them to be way over priced this week at your local grocery store.  I just happened to have fresh ones on hand.
