Shakes. Why Did It Have to Be Shakes?

When milkshake season comes around, a person can feel a bit like Indiana Jones left in a pit of snakes. Safety is nowhere. Especially scary are the mega shakes served up at fast-food eateries everywhere, each with 500 to 1,000 calories and dozens of fat grams! Temptation is all around, and that snake pit takes the shape of a drive-thru. Plus, these burger joints always seem to have some sort of super-tempting seasonal flavor up their sleeves. This year, it's banana chocolate chip. Yup. One of the most delicious fruit flavors paired with chocolatey goodness. Well, here's where we find the rope to pull ourselves out of danger: Making over banana shakes in a guilt-free way is TOTALLY simple! By blending frozen banana coins with a few low-calorie vanilla ingredients, you get a creamy and amazing base. Add mini chocolate chips and a couple of other key components to round out this mouthwatering shake-over. Our recipe is here to save the day... one sip at a time!
