Milkshakes

Milkshakes are easy to make and you can hide a bunch of good stuff in them. My favorite is strawberry banana for the potassium alone. Above and beyond that, it's always a good idea to have molasses (blackstrap) on hand for some extra iron and a little sweetness, flaxseeds or ground flaxseed meal for omega 3s, and possibly even benefiber, soy protein, or a green food product for a healthy additive.

The standard recipe I've used is:
8 to 10 ounces of soy/rice/almond milk
8 ice cubes
1 Tablespoon molasses
2 ripe bananas
1 cup strawberries, hulled
1 teaspoon flaxseed meal




















You blend all this up and pour it into a glass. It's good pretty much any time of the day.




















Variations: Blueberries and peaches make good milkshake fruits. If you have any on hand, pineapple is a great one to use -- it adds a little extra sweetness, too.
