Don't let your ripe bananas go to waste! Try this healthy yet totally delicious Banana Bread Shake for breakfast or even dessert.
Banana Bread Shake Recipe
As much as I love bananas, I somehow can never use them in time before they over-ripen! Thankfully, recipes like banana bread, protein pancakes, or even granola bars call for ripe bananas, so your fruit won't go to waste.
You can also peel and freeze your bananas to add into your smoothies for a thick and creamy consistency - which is the easiest way to preserve your produce! This Banana Bread Shake recipe is a delicious and healthy way to use up your frozen bananas and is simple to make for breakfast or as a snack.
Plus, even if finding the time to bake is difficult with a busy schedule, this shake can be blended up in just a few minutes and tastes like banana bread, but with even more nutrition!
There are usually surprising amounts of added sugar in banana bread, so I prefer making this shake instead for a healthier and quicker alternative. In addition to banana, I also use rolled oats and 310 Organic Vanilla to provide the body with soluble fiber and plant-based proteins, which are key components to healthy digestion and satiety.
