Birthday fun goes on long after the day has passed.
One of the gifts my daughter, Heather, gave me is a set of four glass straws from glassdharma.com that come with a cleaning brush and a lifetime replacement guarantee. An extra wide diameter allows chunky mixtures to slip through easily. Since I was anxious to use my new straws and I had been waiting to try a banana ice cream recipe from health.com, it was the perfect pairing. Frozen bananas thaw rapidly resulting in a consistency closer to a milkshake than ice cream, so that is what I shall rename the recipe.
Frozen Banana Milkshake
2 frozen bananas, sliced
6 tbsp (1/4 c + 2 tbsp) milk
2 tbsp finely chopped walnuts
Process bananas and milk in blender or food processor until smooth and thick. Serve topped with a sprinkle of walnuts.
