Cocktails - All about bananas

( substitute the bananas with mangos to make a mango shake, you may wish to leave out the honey if the mango is very sweet )
Carib Cream: serves 1
1 small banana, 1 measure lemon juice, 1 measure full-fat milk, crushed ice, 1 teaspoon finely chopped walnuts.
Place the banana, lemon juice and milk in a food processor with some crushed ice and process on maximum speed until smooth. Pour into a cocktail glass and sprinkle the chopped walnuts on top just before serving.
1 cup mango juice, 1 cup orange juice, 6 strawberries, stems removed, 1 banana, ½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger, 1 (8-ounce) container of lemon yoghurt.
Place ingredients in a blender cup, blend until smooth and serve.
If you want to prevent your bananas from going brown, simply place them into a bowl & cover with Lemon Juice or Unsweetened Pineapple Juice for 2-3 minutes. This doesn't affect the taste in any way.
