Live healthy: Homemade Banana Shake

Here is a healthy snack that I have been loving lately. A banana shake is the perfect thing to drink when you are craving any bad foods or you're looking for a yummy drink. 

I start off by adding 1 cup of low fat or skim milk (you can use soy milk as well). I then chop and add 2 banana's and a small amount of vanilla essence. Banana's are generally really sweet so there is no need to add sugar or sweeteners. Mix everything in a blender until its creamy and smooth. I topped mine off with a tiny amount of white chocolate (cheating, I know) but I don't do this everyday. 

Another ingredient you can add, if you're a gym junkie, is protein powder. It'll taste extra yummy and will help build muscle.

I make this shake as soon as I get home from work because its too early to eat dinner but it has been a long while since lunch time. It curbs any cravings and is quite filling. You can also add meal replacement shakes to the ingredients above if you are using this as a meal.

I am looking experimenting with other shakes but for now this is my go to live healthy snack.
