Banana Milk Shake

The tropical climate in this country allows abundant of bananas to grow. Some even plant banana trees at their home compound because they are easy to grow. As for us, we normally get our banana supplies at the local grocery stores. Sometimes you can get them at hypermarket like Tesco. My kids love ripe bananas so much that often they finish in seconds. This time, I have saved a few bananas so that I can make delicious banana milk shake for everyone to drink. Enjoy!

4 ripe bananas
500 liter fresh milk
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 Tablesppon sugar
1 cup water
Lots of ice

Blend the whole ingredients in a blender and shake well before serving. You can do this in a blink of an eye!
