This is my favorite shake, and so easy to make too!  The kids just made this one for me.  The cinnamon adds a warm undertone and the honey a little addition of sweetness, overall a very mellow shake.  Make sure your bananas are very ripe, makes 4 kids shakes.

Tip:  You can always freeze ripe bananas for these shakes or for other recipes ahead of time; I would recommend you freeze them out of their peels and in a 1 gallon freezer bag.


2 large, 3 medium very ripe bananas (brown spots will start cropping up when the bananas are ready for a shake or to bake with)

Very Ripe Bananas

Very Ripe Bananas

1 cup Stoney field Banilla or French Vanilla Yogurt

2 cups 1% milk

5 ice cubes

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tablespoon honey

1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter (optional)

Add all ingredients to a blender, first blend on ice crush until all the ice seems crushed (the sound will change), then for 10 seconds on puree or blend.

Tip:  Experts are finding that cinnamon is good for digestion and some studies showed that it can help metabolize sugar.  To get more cinnamon into my kids I add it to the top of unsweetened apple sauce, mix it in Greek Yogurt, shake it on their oatmeal and sprinkle some into most of the shakes we make.
