Frozen Banana - Fig Jam Milkshake

 

Milkshakes can be delicious thirst quenchers on hot summer days or a quick, filling breakfast during time crunches. One can blend together whatever fruit they like/have with their choice of milk, sweetener and flavorings, making it a drink of one's liking besides with an option of keeping it healthy. Add ice cubes or frozen fruit chunks on a hot day.
Bananas are those fruits that are least preferred at home but still bought each time I go grocery shopping. When I am in no mood to do anything with them, I peel the bananas, cut into big chunks and store them in the freezer either in a ziploc bag or a closed container.  And whenever I prepare shakes or smoothies, I just add them to the blender. They keep the drink cool besides not making it watery like ice cubes. 
I sometimes add fig jam to the banana milkshake. Fig jam lends sweetness and flavor to the jam and so no need to add sugar to this shake. It is one of the yummier shakes and my kid approved drink at home. And so this is my Day 5 post under "Seasonal Recipes".

Method:
For one serving, blend together a frozen banana, 1 heaped tsp fig jam and 1 cup milk. Serve immediately.
