This is good as a snack or for breakfast. This highly nutritious hot banana milkshake will warm you up. It's got a whole banana in it, so it makes a great nutritious and filling breakfast for busy mornings.
This tastes best when you use a really ripe banana.
Break up the banana with your hands and add the slices to a bowl. Mash with a fork until puréed.
Add the milk, sugar and egg yolk to the bowl, and mix with a whisk.
Put the mixture in a pan. Cook over a low heat and stir until thickened. Alternatively, you can just keep agitating the pan as it cooks. However, be sure to do once or the other or else it'll solidify!
If you like, sprinkle cinnamon powder on top before drinking.
If you're suffering from a cold, try adding in a little bit of rum or brandy. Drink it just before you go to bed, and you'll fall asleep no problem.
Story Behind this Recipe
I make this milkshake in winter when I'm feeling lethargic. It's really filling as it has a whole banana plus it's nutritious thanks to the egg and milk. This creamy, hot drink packed full of nutrition is a family recipe.
If you overcook this, the egg yolk will solidify and crumble up in the drink. So, make sure to take the pan off the heat as soon as the mixture has thickened! You can mash the banana until puréed thoroughly, or just mash it roughly if you prefer a chunky texture. If you leave chunks, use a spoon to eat. This drink is great for when you're feeling under the weather.
