he's running up that hill...
A quick and easy milkshake ready in minutes. My banana, chocolate and oat milk shake is great for breakfast or healthy snack later on in the day. We enjoyed it after a long walk with Monsieur Eric le chien - who although did his best to dig for moles, or any other creatures he thought he could smell, was (as usual and thankfully) unsuccessful. 

You can make this with fresh bananas, but in my opinion it's much better with frozen. Something magical (but probably chemical) happens to the banana in the freezing process that creates an almost ice-cream like texture. A delicious addition to a milkshake.

preparation time: 5 minutes + a few hours or overnight banana freezing time. 
recipe by: Ema at De Tout Coeur Limousin

ingredients:
2 frozen chopped ripe bananas
500ml milk
40g oats
50g chocolate/chocolate hazelnut spread
1/2 tsp cinnamon

method:

add all the ingredients to a blender and whizz until smooth. C'est tout! 

cooks hints & tips: 

you can of course make this with any milk or dairy free alternatives - I usually use soya milk. You can also use a dairy free or vegan chocolate spread too, or a spoonful of cocoa powder as a dairy free alternative. 

mix and match with other fruit and flavourings - it's lovely with a handful of blueberries or raspberries, a spoonful of honey or peanut butter too

a good way of using up over-ripe bananas - peel, slice and freeze ready to use for your next milkshake.
