Frozen banana hazelnut shake

Banana Smoothie

I’m a big fan of shakes made of frozen banana “ice cream” blended with nut milk. Almond milk is lovely in these shakes, Brazil nut milk is better still, but the hands-down winner? Hazelnut milk.

Try this recipe on for size.

You’ll need a food processor and a high-powered blender to make this, and it also involves a little pre-planning. But once you have all the bits in place it takes under five minutes to assemble.

The first step is to peel 2 medium bananas (per serving), place them in freezer bags and freeze for at least 8 hours.

You’ll also need to make up a batch of raw hazelnut milk in advance, as you’ll need a cup per serving. Then you:

  1. Place bananas in a food processor fitted with the “S” blade and process until they are whipped into an ice-cream-like texture. This may take about two minutes, and the mixture may go grainy first, but keep processing and those bananas will morph into something that looks and feels like “Mr Whippy”.
  2. Spoon this mixture into the blender with the hazelnut milk and blend until you have a cold, thick, creamy – and praliney, thanks to the hazelnuts – shake.

I’ll just say in advance…you’re welcome!
