banana and fig milkshake

Bananas are an wonderful fruit, those reading me will know that I cherish this humble fruit. It’s packed with nutrition and the one fruit liked by all at home. It is available all round the year unlike other fruits. But there are times, when this fruit goes unused. I use it along with figs for a nutritious packed drink.

I love making milkshakes. These are delicious and loved by all ages. You can substitute the ingredients accordingly.
Banana and fig milkshake is a tasty and healthy drink. It is ideal for kids who do not have breakfast in the mornings. I have used fresh figs here. Figs are rich in natural sugar, minerals and solution fibre. It consists of minerals such as potassium, calcium , magnesium, iron and copper along with Vitamin A and E. Thus , the blending of these two fruits makes it a healthy drink.

This is an ideal way for fussy kids who do not eat figs.
