Easy Non-Dairy Banana Shake Recipe
Making a Non-Dairy Banana Shake
With this recipe, I have created a simple banana shake with a luxuriously creamy texture without using dairy. The nutty flavor of almond milk compliments the bananas beautifully. By using two bananas, you not only get the creamy texture, you also get enough banana flavor to come through. The dash of nutmeg ties all the flavors together. Because bananas are one of the healthiest foods you can eat, this easy shake is great for a quick energy boost.

How To Not Screw It Up
C’mon, it doesn’t get any easier than this, right? That’s what I thought, but as I was trying to work out the ratios for this recipe, I did encounter several hurdles that I’ll makes sure you don’t repeat:
- Break the banana into several pieces when you put it into the blender. Putting it in whole can result in uneven chunks of banana in your shake instead of a smooth, banana-flavored shake.
- Use very ripe bananas (i.e. the ones with lots of brown on the skin). They’re the sweetest and add the most banana flavor. In fact, I’ve found this recipe to be a great way to use up the over-ripe bananas that I wouldn’t otherwise eat.
- Don’t overdo the nutmeg. One eigth of a teaspoon may sounds like too little, but trust me, it’s plenty. More than that overpowers the bananas.
