You Go Girl – Organic Cinnamon and Banana Yogurt Milkshake
When you buy organic you deserve a hand. You go girl! Go Organic! Give me a “O”! Give me a “R”! Give me a “G”! Give me an “A”! Give me a “N”! Give me an “I”! Give me a “C”! What’s it spell? ORGANIC, Go Organic YEA!
This is a milkshake that I make for me and my girls for a late afternoon pick-me-up.
If you have some over ripe bananas in the house this milkshake is a great way to use them up.
3 ripe organic bananas
2 cups of organic whole milk
6 oz container of organic strawberry yogurt
1/4 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of organic cinnamon powder
Peel your bananas and cut out any bad brown spots. Place them in the blender.
Add the milk, strawberry yogurt, vanilla extract and cinnamon to the blender.
Blend on high for 2-3 minutes. Since you are using whole milk the mixture will get very light with air incorporated into the cream that is naturally in the whole milk.
Serve in a glass with a fun crazy straw. Your kids will drink it up and ask for more.
Food safety warning note:
Only read this warning if you have a strong stomach and are not easily grossed out.
Milk and yogurt are two items that you should always buy as organic at the supermarket. Have you ever heard of the cow growth hormone rBGH that non-organic farmers are injecting into their cows to make them produce more milk per day? The company that manufactures it is called Monsanto and they do not want you to know about their nasty little growth hormone called rBGH. You see rBGH causes the cows to produce excess puss in the milk which is not healthy for the cows or for you drinking the milk. Cows being injected with rBGH do not live as long and have higher incidences of the disease mastitis. Mastitis is inflammation of the mammary gland in the cow’s udder, typically due to a bacterial infection which produces pus in the milk. Monsanto has even passed a gag rule that organic milk products can not explain about rBGH but can only say organic milk is produced without the use of rBGH hormones.
