This is a healthier alternative to a milk shake using pudding to make it thick and banana to give it body. Since they make all different kinds of pudding mix, the flavors are virtually limitless!
Blend the milk, sliced up banana, and pudding mix until it is smooth. Add ice cubes to blender until the desired shake consistency is achieved (you can kind of play with this, but around 1 1/2 cups is what we usually use). Serve right away while it’s nice and cold.
We usually make this with chocolate pudding (you can still taste the banana, but it kind of tastes like a Wendy's frosty I think, I've always wondered if they add banana flavor to their chocolate shakes). Vanilla pudding with some frozen strawberries would be great too. The pudding makes it thick and the banana gives it body, and since they make so many different instant pudding flavors (and sugar free too might I add), the fake shake flavors are limitless! You could even add little bits of fun stuff like cookies or candy like real shakes (would just need to add them at the end so they don't get soggy). This is a fun recipe that uses ingredients most people have on hand and is really kid friendly (to make and eat). I won't go as far as calling it a health shake, but it's healthier than a real shake :)
