CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Happy Monkey Banana Pudding Shake
Instead of trying to find things that rhyme with "banana," such as Illinois college town Urbana and Glee's coolest bad girl Santana, we focused on making the best low-calorie 'nana shake we could. Taste it -- the work paid off!
1/2 cup light vanilla soymilk
1 tbsp. Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Vanilla Instant pudding mix
1 tsp. fat-free nondairy powdered creamer (like the kind by Coffee-mate), dissolved in 1 tbsp. warm water
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
1/4 cup fat-free vanilla ice cream
Half a medium banana, sliced into coins, frozen
1 cup crushed ice or 5 - 8 ice cubes
2 Reduced Fat Nilla Wafers
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
1 maraschino cherry
In a tall glass, combine soymilk, pudding mix, creamer mixture, and sweetener. Stir until mostly dissolved. Transfer contents of the glass to a blender.
Add ice cream, frozen banana coins, and ice to the blender. Blend at high speed until thoroughly mixed. If needed, remove blender from the base, stir mixture, and blend again.
Pour into the tall glass. Break wafers into pieces and stir into the shake. Top with Reddi-wip and a cherry, and enjoy!
