Skinny Nutella Shake

Skinny Nutella Shake

Friday= milkshake time.

Ever since the year began, I’ve been kind of crazy about smoothies and shakes. While I always love a milkshake loaded with delicious ice cream, I don’t have them very often for obvious reasons.

The key to making a “skinny” shake is the use of a frozen banana. If you have never tried it before, blending a banana for a few minutes results in something quite magical. It becomes silky and creamy, just like ice cream! Sometimes I like to just blend a frozen banana in my food processor and toss in some peanut butter or Nutella and it always satisfies my cravings for ice cream, but without the guilt!

I buy bananas just for the sole purpose of letting them get nice and ripe so I can slice them up and toss them in a freezer bag for shakes and smoothies (or of course, banana bread). They give all of my smoothies that shake-like consistency, which I love oh so much! This Nutella version is the perfect dessert for the warm summer months. It’s rich and chocolatey, but not too heavy. Also, since it doesn’t actually contain any ice cream, this totally means you can have it for breakfast too!
