I’m starting to wonder if my kids picky eating phase is ever going to actually END. Until I can see light at the end of that tunnel, I’m relying on clever recipes that will give them a little extra boost of nutrition like this easy and delicious chocolate banana milkshake recipe.
I like this milkshake recipe because it takes me just minutes to whip up and my kids love how it tastes. They don’t need to know that Ovaltine contains 12 vitamins and minerals, not to mention the healthy benefits of the milk and the banana that are blended into this yummy drink.

This recipe is also great for freezing into pops for a frosty summertime treat! You can either pick up some simple ice pop molds or get one of those fancy Zoku Quick Pop Makers that I’ve heard so many great things about.
My kids really enjoy this nutritious chocolate banana milkshake at breakfast time. I have some great to-go smoothie cups that I like to use on school mornings so the kids can have their shake on the drive to class. I’ve even been known to blend a little extra for myself—it’s just that good!
My dad always used to buy Ovaltine for me and my brother when we were kids, so there is a bit of nostalgia for me when I use this product. As much as my brother and I enjoyed having Ovaltine, I think my dad secretly purchased it more for himself than for us! I can’t blame him!
Whether you have picky eaters like my kids or you’re just looking for a better-for-them snack, you’ll love this simple chocolate banana milkshake recipe.
