Cheetah shake

We have a glut of bananas right now which normally means that either banana cake or Cheetah shakes/smoothies are on the cards...

I normally freeze any old bananas we have (just break them into small chunks first and throw into a freezer bag) so we always have them ready for this smoothie. This one tastes very similar to Macdonalds chocolate milkshake - but is, of course, a tad healthier ;)

Cheetah shake is actually a misnomer because, as the milkshake is made with bananas (obviously there is no cheetah in it...), I would call it a Monkey shake. But, hey, the kids came up with the name and drink the darn stuff, so who cares? ;D

You'll need:
  • about 1 cup or 250mls milk
  • 1-2 bananas (depending on how thick you want it, frozen work best)
  • 1 big squirt honey
  • 1 tablespoon of chocolate drink powder
Blend the whole lot, pour into little fancy glasses, add a straw or a parasol and there you have it. Happy Saturday! :)
