These could be dangerous

(I used my stick blender.)

It really irks me when I make something really delicious and I can't capture the deliciousness in a photograph. I have to admit that I don't always try hard enough to get the best picture. It's just hard not to be in a rush sometimes.

This just hit the spot for me. I love banana ice cream but bananas with ice cream is the next best thing. Does anyone remember that ridiculous 3-day diet that went around years ago? The best part was that you got to eat bananas and ice cream one night. Well, that was the only good thing about it.

I was so intent on making this that I went to three stores to get malted milk powder. My regular store only carries the chocolate flavor which would be good but it wasn't what I wanted. I made this on the thin side - add more ice cream if you like a thick shake. This was good with low-fat milk and light ice cream.

Sometimes I'm just posting recipes as I'm making them but I'm developing quite a queue of recipes. It's got to be the cooler weather causing me to hit the cookbooks hard although it's going to warm up again this weekend so maybe I'll take a breather.

Blast From The Past: Blueberry & Buttermilk Falls Drink from January 2006, another great smoothie.

Question of the Day: Do you like thick shakes or thin shakes?

thick if i'm dipping french fries into the shake. slightly thinner if i'm trying to drink it through a straw. although, if it's too thick for the straw, i'd still be happy enough to eat it with a spoon!

French fries dipped in a shake? That's a new one on me.

I like mine halfway between, but to choose one - that would be thick. (you can always let it melt a little)

That sounds really delicious. It could be dangerous for me too!

I like them think and chocolate. My favorite morning shake is milk, frozen banana, chocolate protein powder and 1T of peanut butter, hits my spot!
