"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."
Kids will need only three ingredients to whip up this bright beverage shared by Renee Schwebach of Dumont, Minnesota. The sweet blend gets its purple color and refreshing flavor from grape juice concentrate.
"These creamy milk shakes have a fruity twist that's an appealing change from the more traditional chocolate or strawberry flavor," notes Sharon Mensing, a field editor who lives in Greenfield, Iowa. "They're a real treat."
This thick milk shake-like beverage is delicious, with its big banana and coffee flavor. The recipe, shared by Cassandra Corridon of Frederick, Maryland, makes a cool satisfying snack or a change-of-pace drink to go with a casual meal.
