Sometimes, even classics need a polish up, and today we´re going to do it with the banana milkshake. I remember drinking it in summer so often, that I was not hungry at dinner time afterwards… but I never did it during wintertime. I just want something more spicy during the cold season… and here I found it! http://food52.com/recipes/12698-banana-cardamom-milkshake
I fell so deeply in love with this genius version of my favourite childhood milkshake that I decided to change it a little to fit it into my daily diet. I recommend you to test out the original version (and get addicted) and maybe try out this little recipe of mine.
For 2 portions :
-1 large banana
-1 cup of almond or soy milk
-1 pinch of cardamom, grounded
-1 large pinch of cinnamon
Simply mix it all together in the blender, until smooth ad foamy, and voilà! Because you used plant-based milk, it will be poor in calories and very light, while still melting like a mousse on your tongue. I recommend almond milk because of the rich consistency. To my fellow chocolate lovers I suggest replacing the spice with a good teaspoon of cocoa powder… hmmm. The milkshake is also delicious on ice!
