Although it might be getting chilly, you can still take some time to enjoy a frozen and healthy drink.

Skip your frozen coffee today.

Here is what you can do instead:

Peel and freeze some ripe bananas.

Get out the blender, some skim milk (or soy/rice/almond milk-whatever you use) and put those frozen bananas in. The general ratio is about 1 cup of milk to 1 whole banana.

Blend away.

You may have to stop a few times and move the mixture around if it clumps up.

If it’s too thick and not moving at all, add a tad bit more milk. But don’t let it get too runny.

Pour into a glass and sip through a straw.


Tip: The more ripe the banana is that you freeze, the sweeter and stronger the flavor.
