French Toast Shake

French Toast Shake

Okay, I am going to admit something right here: I loathe the word smoothie. The infantilizing sound of the word, the way it looks typed out, the way it seems reminiscent of something sixth grade boys do to torment one another (used in a sentence: “You should have seen that smoothie I gave the new kid!”) and on and on. So, yeah, yuck. Despite the way that the word makes the hair on my arms stand on end, I still like the drink itself, so I refer to them instead as shakes. Who doesn’t like a creamy and refreshing shake? So shake on, my friends.

This shake takes the flavors we love from French Toast and blends it into the form of a chilly beverage we can guzzle. Add a little sprinkling of buttery toasted pecans on top, and you’ve got the flavors without all the heaviness of French toast. By the way, if you don’t already freeze your bananas for your smoo - oops, shakes! - please give it a try. Not only will you get a chillier drink, but it will be even more naturally creamy. Simply remove the peel and slice; we keep them on a plate in the freezer and they never get freezer burn because they don’t get a chance, we go through them so fast.
