Banana Shake

Makes 1 serving

This shake is a real hit with children. Frozen bananas make it thick and creamy. To freeze bananas, peel and cut or break into 1-inch pieces. Place in freezer on flat tray until frozen, then transfer to an airtight container for storage.

1 cup soymilk
1 cup frozen banana chunks

Place soymilk and banana in blender and blend until thick and smooth.

Variation: For a sweeter shake, add 2 or 3 pitted dates.
