Liquado de platano (spanish for a blend of banana which you could just say banana shake ;) enjoy)

Asalaamu alaikum waramatulahi wabarakatahu (peace and blessing be unto you)

Here is something my grandmother used to make us.

Bananas are a cheap, easy to find, and naturally a good source of energy and potassium so before reaching for that second cup of coffee (did I, of all people just say that?!) You could eat a banana or make this.

Wash your blender really well ( I always have to double wash since I make chile (hot sauce) in ours all the time)

Take 3-5 ice cubes and throw them in the blender. cut up 2 bananas in pieces and add to the blender. add 3 drops of halal vanilla (HALAL STATUS OF VANILLIN: Artificial or synthetic vanillin do not contain alcohol and it is also Halal or Kosher certified. It is a Halal ingredient.
Artificial or synthetic vanillin is made with all Halal ingredients and Halal process without alcohol. Lignin, used to make the artificial vanillin, when derived from botanical product is Halal. Methane when used as a solvent is considered as a Halal solvent.
ISLAMIC SCHOLARS’ VIEW ON THIS TOPIC: Some Islamic Scholars considered a food product Not Halal if it is made with a flavor containing alcohol as a solvent. But others considered it Halal because they said the small or large quantity (less than 2%) of the product does not intoxicate a person. Please consult your Sheikh or Imam on this topic if needed.

add 1 and 1/4 cups of milk and blend.

You’ll have a natural no sugar added, fulfilling drink with natural energizers and potassium.

Not only is this quick and easy to make but also affordable.
