Tropical Breakfast Shake

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by KittyKitty

this shake is really quick to make, and of course it's not just for breakfast! Keep banana slices in your freezer, to make one at any time. All you have to do, is toss fresh banana slices in lemon juice, and you can freeze bananas up to 6 months in a freezer bag. We love to make these on our summer beach trip.

Have had this recipe in mind to make for some time, & now that I'm having a hard time finding a good fresh mango, I used the frozen ones, in lieu of freezing the banana ~ Half a dozen of one & 6 1/2 of the other, so . . . (What the hey, my dozens are BAKER'S dozens!) Anyway, thanks to your recipe 2 of us had A GREAT MORNING DRINK! Thanks for the posting! [Tagged, made & reviewed just for the 'halibut!']
