Amaze-balls Vegan Thickshake

20131219-145633.jpg

It’s really hard not to take seconds of this vegan milkshake thing I made… Either that or you hope and pray that your kids don’t finish theirs, so that you can polish off every last drop. The key to this treat is the consistency. You want to make sure it’s fairly thick, but not so thick that you have to eat with a spoon (although it would still taste as good).

Ingredients
-3-4 frozen bananas, that have been cut into pieces a few inches long
-Rice milk (or soy, almond, etc.)
-1 heaping tablespoon of almond butter
-A big pinch of vanilla powder or about a teaspoon of vanilla extract

Directions
Put all ingredients in a
blender, leaving the rice milk for last. Put enough rice milk in so
that the level if rice milk is about an inch under the frozen
bananas. I would give an exact measurement, but everyone’s bananas
come in different sizes 😉 Blend and serve cold!

  1. This is my fav shake too and its like a power meal. But in your picture your daughter is using a straw. Isn’t it dangerous for kids at this age? I mean straw before 2 years of age?

    • Well, I think the only issue with the straw is that it’s plastic… I’m waiting on my environmentally friendly stainless steel ones! What have you heard about a baby using a straw that’s dangerous? I’ve never heard of it? She’s been using a straw since she was little… maybe like 8 months old? With supervision always…

      • mmmmmmmmmm. a fren of mine told me that sucking lots of liquid (since kids dont know how to) may cause issues like liquid going into wind pipe etc, so its not advisable till 2 years. I personally was in favour of trying a straw till she told me this. My LO is 8 months old now and I want her to have milk shakes but don’t know how to feed her

      • Hmmm, I think that sounds a bit like old fashioned advice. My kids have both sipped from straws no problem, just give it to them and see what happens! They might cough a little at first? But I’ve done baby led weaning, so the kids are very confident with chewing/swallowing.

  2. This shake sounds delicious, and so easy. Thanks for sharing the recipe Kate! Love your blog.
