You guys. I am sick again. What the heck? I just got over a sinus cold and now I have another one. Curses. It is definitely not fun being pregnant and sick. And you definitely can’t load up on the Nyquil!

I haven’t had much of an appetite at all the past couple of days and all that sounded good to me was a shake for my sore throat. I loved this recipe for this skinny cookies and cream shake. Let me tell you why. The secret ingredient is a frozen banana. It gave it such creamy texture and a sweet flavor. The banana flavor wasn’t over powering at all.

Cookies and Cream shakes are hands down my favorite of all time. This shake is only 4 simple ingredients and can be whipped up in a jiffy! My kids couldn’t even tell that there was a banana inside and loved it just as much as I did! And you can’t go wrong with a delicious cookies and cream shake with lower calories! Win!

*Do not freeze the banana in the peel. Cut into chunks and freeze in a ziplock baggie.
