Banana Shake – Yummy goodie:

If you are looking for some yummy goodness, then banana shake is the obvious choice. Easy to make, banana shakes can tickle your taste buds if you add some almonds and walnut to it. Take the drink in between meals, like on empty stomach, and during snack time.

Banana Smoothie with Honey – Power Snacking:

Try making banana smoothie in as many flavours you can and serve it as a breakfast and snacking beverage. A blender is all you require to make it anytime, anywhere and the way you like it.
