HOW TO... make a banana (egg) flip.

tonight my guy and i went to his parent's house for dinner. his mom (being the nice lady that she is) got me a vegetarian cookbook. for the record, i'm NOT a vagetarian, but i do LOOOOVE vegetables. the book is full of great ideas (you can easily add chicken to any recipe) and includes a lot of desserts. so rick's friend tim comes over and we're flipping through the book and we see this:

prep time: 5 min
total cooking time: nil
makes: 2

1 1/2 cups milk
1 medium-sized banana
1 tbsp honey
1 egg
2-3 tbsp yoghurt (yes, that's how they spell yogurt in this book)
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
2 ice cubes

suddenly tim is overcome by inspiration and hunger. he grabs a banana from the kitchen table. armed with the cookbook, we embark on a mission across the street to tim's house to make some banana-y goodness..

the visual:

note: yes, the recipe calls for raw egg (ew!) we included it and the drink was still tasty but i don't recommend consuming raw egg. i do however recommend adding more ice. cheers!!

yeah, it was really good!!! tasted like a more liquidy banana milkshake... which is why i recommend adding more ice. we didn't put enough.
