Yumtritious Mango-Banana Shake (dairy-free)

 

 

mango-banana shake

A shake made from mango and bananas is by definition yummy and nutritious. This recipe ups the nutritional value of the shake.

 Makes 4ish cups

Ingredients

 

2/3 cup water

1 large mango, cut into pieces

1/4 cup walnuts, soaked in water for at least 1 hour, drained

1 cup soy, rice, or nut milk

2 ripe bananas

1 tsp lecithin granules

Steps

  1. Be sure to soak the walnuts for at least 1 hour. Soaking longer will soften them more.
  2. Into a blender, add all the ingredients in the order in which they are presented in the list.
  3. Blend until the walnuts are mixed in well.

 

Notes

  • You don’t need a super-duper blender to make this shake. I made it in an old Osterizer blender. I could very slightly detect the walnuts so I assume that a more powerful blender would blend them in better.
