Milk Chocolate - Banana Milkshake


Fruits are my first choice when I am looking for something to snack on and ditto when packing kids' snack boxes. My kids love chilled fruit slices or fruit milkshakes / smoothies and so I thought of posting a quick and filling milkshake for my "Easy Tiffins / Snacks" theme in blogging Marathon #17.
I keep throwing surprises in the ordinary milkshakes when the kids' are not ready to drink any warm milk beverages during summer days. I found this idea of adding Nestle's nutrition drink mix to banana milkshake on the box and tried it. It definitely makes the ordinary milkshake more balanced and nutritive one and the kids' loved the chocolate flavored shake.  

Ingredients for one serving:
3/4 cup milk
1 small frozen banana
1 packet rich milk chocolate flavor Carnation breakfast essentials complete nutritional drink mix
Sweetener of your choice (optional)

Method:
Place everything in a blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

My son prefers milkshakes to eating fruit :-( I Say to myself 'something is better than nothing' and make then anyway.
Adding the carnation breakfast essentials is interesting -- will have to try next time.
