Morning Milkshake

Sometimes, you need to dig out the blender.

Morning Milkshake

Adapted from Joy the Baker

Serves 2 unless you’re really really hungry

2 cups cold unsweetened Silk

1 frozen banana, cut in chunks

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 tablespoon ground flax seeds

2 teaspoons old fashioned oats

Add all of the above into a blender and blend until smooth. Cinnamon lovers, add some cinnamon.

This milkshake was so delicious — enjoyed immediately or the next morning (it thickens up overnight in the fridge!) The recipe originally calls for pre-grinding the oats, but they grind up just fine in the blender as is. Also, originally, honey is added, but I skipped it because bananas are already so sweet.

This is super filling and great for a post-workout meal/snack. It’s nutritionally dense with tons of protein, healthy fats, potassium for healing sore muscles and fiber for… a sound body.

I don’t normally make smoothies or milkshakes but this one is a winner.

    I took a few quick sips of my share the next morning but saved the rest to savor. Wasn’t sure how it would be after so many hours but it was so delicious! thick and creamy and yum
