My Quick Ensure Banana Shake

I picked up these Ensure Milk Chocolate Immune Health shakes as meal replacements when I left the hospital. They taste pretty good, but are a little rich by themselves.  My mother-in-law suggested making a shake with them.  I love chocolate and bananas, so decided to give it a try. 

I decided to wait until breakfast, and figured this was something that wouldn't hurt my stomach too much. The Ensure site mentions that they are gluten free, and suitable for lactose intolerance.   

I used the Ensure Milk Chocolate shake, 1 banana, and good amount of ice.  I put it all together in our small bullet type blender and 30 seconds later was enjoying a tasty cool shake.  

It tasted great, and made a good amount.  I wasn't able to finish it all.  Like most meals since this most recent Crohn's flare up, I get about halfway done and have to run to the bathroom.  Fun, I know!

I want to give this a try with other fruit, but don't know what to try.   I also have some of the Beachbody Shakeology mix I could try to have some fun with.
