Boo-nana Ghosts (Banana Milkshake)

Banana Milkshake 

We make this smoothie quite often and today I thought I’d re take some photos to share the recipe but this photo of my little guy enjoying this smoothie last year is definitely the best picture! Add on some eyes and a mouth and you have a fun spooky Halloween smoothie!

This smoothie is a great high calorie option as it’s loaded with lots of healthy fat and protein to keep little tummies full! I like to serve this smoothie when he isn’t eating like normal as it’s nutrient dense and filling.
