“I came up with these when my kids wanted ice-cream and I wanted a better alternative. Sherbet shakes weren't as exciting so we added fruit. The only way my youngest son ate bananas was if we called it monkey food and that's how this got its name.” Fay Strait - Waukee, Iowa
My son loved this festive milkshake growing up—it's nicely spiced and tastes like pumpkin pie. I like cutting off both ends of a licorice twist and serving it as a straw.—Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas
For a nutritious breakfast or snack on the go, try this hearty shake from Norma Gabriel of Mondovi, Wisconsin. "With the banana, yogurt and milk, it's quite filling," she says. "My husband, son and I all enjoy it."
