"When the Winnipeg River beckons my visiting grandchildren each summer, they won't stop for breakfast," relates Helen Stine of Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba, "but they'll always make time for these nutritious banana shakes."
I love bananas and these shakes are the best. Though we're stationed overseas, I've fed my two young kids these made-in-moments drinks since they were babies. Pop them into the freezer for a few minutes if you like them thicker. Or try different flavors using chocolate or strawberry ice cream. -Martha Miller, Camp Zama, Japan
