Banana and Chocolate Shake

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by ImPat

From Australian Better Homes and Gardens Diabetic Living. Easy to halve or double. Sustagen here in Australia is a powdered formula often used for the sick and weak hence high in all the nutrients (used a lot when the DM recovered from surgery) - it comes in vanilla or chocolate, you may wish to look for something similar.

Just a tip if you haven't tried it. Slice your bananas in 1/2 " rounds and freeze. When making shakes, after blending ingredients, add the frozen banana slices, and forget the ice! The result is a thicker, richer shake. I also use frozen strawberries, blueberries and peaches, just for shakes. I also find that the powdered dry skim milk, when mixed and cold whips up with more volume than the already prepared skim.
