A healthy and tasty banana shake!

on 03/02/2011

I made this tasty & lovely gluten-free & dairy free drink this afternoon. I drank it after a cardio work-out.

Gluten-free & dairy-free banana shake!

Yum yum yum,…Sipping it all the way!

Print me!!

Recipe: For 2 large glasses


2 large & ripe bananas, peeled & cut up into chunks

1 tablespoon of gluten-free vanilla extract/ I use home-made

350 ml of vanilla rice milk/ I use this one: Rice & rice Drink, Probios, Organic vanilla rice milk. Just click onto the link to find out more. It is naturally sugared a bit. It is gluten-free & dairy free.


1. Take a blender or a big bowl & add the cut up bananas, the vanilla extract & the vanilla rice milk.

2. Blend it or mix it until completely smooth.

3. Serve it straight away & place a lovely coloured straw into the full glass.

MMM …!!!!

    @ Hélène: Here is a good read about rice milk.

    Rice milk is a kind of grain milk processed from rice. It is mostly made from brown rice and commonly unsweetened. The sweetness in most rice milk varieties is generated by a natural enzymatic process, cleaving the carbohydrates into sugars, especially glucose. Some rice milk kinds may nevertheless be sweetened with sugarcane syrup or other sugars.
    It is mostly used by people who are lactose- intolerant like me or who are dairy-free!
