+ This Nana Nog // Banana Shake Recipe Post brought to you by the folks at Silk Almond Milk +
When I was a kid, one of my favorite treats was a banana shake that my Mom would make every once in a while, we called it a Nana Nog.
No relation to Egg Nog, plus you can drink it year-round!
It was a simple mixture, but it was always so heavenly. She would always pull it out of her hat, right at the perfect time.
You know, that moment when you’re craving a little sweet refreshing treat?!
Secretly I’m sure, she made them right when the bananas were heading south and she didn’t have time to make banana bread.
I however, would like to think she was so in tune with my every desire and knew just when the time was right to pull out her famous Nana Nog!
The name of the drink has a two fold meaning now. Of course it was originally named after the key ingredient, bananas. Now, since we call my Mom Nana, the drink is named after her the creator! It’s perfect!!
We have another drink called Magical Monkey Milk, I’ll have to share that sometime too! It’s yummy!!
Nana Nogs are simply a mixture of Silk Almond Milk, bananas, ice, a little bit of sugar and a dash of nutmeg. Boy I tell ya, it really hits the spot sometimes!
