It’s warm out! After that last winter, I’m ecstatic to finally be out riding my bike and not be trapped inside any more.
I love frozen drinks, and the summer is the best time of the year for them. Hands down the best thing to enjoy after a reasonable workout is a frozen Banana Milk. It’s brain dead simple to make with a Vitamix:
Banana Milk (★★★★★)
The best way to cool down and get your body what it needs after a workout
1 frozen banana
Break the banana in two and put it in the blender, then add milk to achieve your desired consistency. I prefer the consistency of an easily drinkable milkshake. It’s very important to use the tamper when making this to avoid having any banana chunks remaining. I find I get the best results when I blend it on high for about 20-30 seconds using the tamper while blending, then check the consistency, adding more milk if needed, and then blending for another 20-30 seconds before serving.
For the absolutely best tasting Banana Milk, I personally prefer a 60:40 mix of whole milk from a local farm and soy milk. But just milk and banana is the easiest way to make it. All I have to do is remember to throw a banana in the freezer before I go on a long ride.
