From my Jenn-Aire cookbook. Refrigerate pineapple and banana overnight for an extra-cold breakfast shake.
- 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple in juice
- 1 large banana, peeled and quartered
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 teaspoons finely chopped candied ginger
- 1 drop coconut extract (optional)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and whirl for 1 minute until smooth.
- Pour into 2 tall glasses and serve immediately.
I am enjoying this right now and if I could give it more than five stars, I would! It's so good - the only thing I changed was that I added 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder - just for personal dietary preferences, as I often sub protein shakes for my breakfast and am always looking for new flavor possibilities so I don't get bored. I didn't refrigerate the pineapple or banana and it's just fine! Now I'm not so mad at DH for eating all of one of my ingredients for dinner tonight. Since I have to stop at the store anyway, now I can get more pineapple and bananas so that I can have this again tomorrow! :) I had planned to have the rest after my workout this afternoon, but...hope I can resist the temptation and wait till then.....:)
It was Delicious!!! I froze the pineapple, used sugar instead of honey, substituted candied sugar with 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger and finally I used 1 quarter of canned coconut milk instead of a coconut extract. Yummy :D
This was a refreshing change to my morning routine! The candied ginger added a flair, without heat. I added a few ice cubes, and used fat-free buttermilk. Excellent recipe, Julie B! Thanks for sharing...made for ZWT 5.
