About Thomas

I write because I can type. I can type because I have a keyboard.

I am a new age Australian resident that is experiencing this new continent with a fresh set of eyes. 

I write on a wide range of topics. Well, I write on food. There you have it, I write on a wide range of food as well. 


One of my favourite summer drinks is the banana milkshake. Here's my tried and true recipe.

Banana is one of the most popular fruits around the world. Not only are they extremely healthy and delicious, they also contain several essential nutrients and benefit digestion, heart health and weight loss.

Really delightful.

With just a few extra ingredients, the banana can be a delightful treat for all ages. One of my favourite summer drinks is the banana milkshake. I could live on it for days.

Here's what I do:

Ingredients

  • 250ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla icecream
  • 2 bananas, chopped
  • A pinch cinnamon
  • Method:

  • Put the milk, icecream and banana in a blender. Mix everything up until smooth then pour into a tall glass.
  • Decorate with a pinch of cinnamon and a banana slice. Serve immediately with a colourful straw.
  • There are other additions you can make, too. Some top it with whipped cream, others with ice and fruits. If you have your own recipe for a winning milkshake, please share. We'd love to try it.
