First Bites Cookbook: Maddy’s Creamy Dreamy Banana Shake

20150123_0067

My older daughter can’t get enough of this “milk shake,” where frozen banana takes the place of ice cream. To turn into a breakfast item, add a handful of fresh berries, or throw in some mini chocolate chips and—voilà— it’s dessert.

2 medium bananas, frozen
1 cup low-fat (1 percent) milk

Place ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
