My parents had a restaurant in St. Mary’s Hospital when I was a very small child. I hardly remember it, but I do remember occasionally calling my dad and asking him to bring home a banana shake. Bliss in a big styrofoam cup, I tell you.
While my love of banana shakes has remained with me throughout my life, drinking them every day is not really conducive to the healthy, active, productive life that I am interested in leading. However, many stress-induced banana shake cravings have led me to whip up an incredibly simple and very healthy alternative to the traditional version.
