HG's Happy Monkey Banana Pudding Shake

Milkshakes are delicious, but for me, they're too heavy and I end up with an awful stomach ache...Hungry Girl's redone milkshake is just as thick but not as heavy. Obviously still delicious as always!

HG's Happy Monkey Banana Pudding Shake

1/2 cup light vanilla soymilk
1 tbsp. Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Vanilla Instant pudding mix
1 tsp. fat-free nondairy powdered creamer (like the kind by Coffee-mate), dissolved in 1 tbsp. warm water
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
1/4 cup fat-free vanilla ice cream
Half a medium banana, sliced into coins, frozen
1 cup crushed ice or 5 - 8 ice cubes
2 Reduced Fat Nilla Wafers
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
1 maraschino cherry

In a tall glass, combine soymilk, pudding mix, creamer mixture, and sweetener. Stir until mostly dissolved. Transfer contents of the glass to a blender.

Add ice cream, frozen banana coins, and ice to the blender. Blend at high speed until thoroughly mixed. If needed, remove blender from the base, stir mixture, and blend again.

Pour into the tall glass. Break wafers into pieces and stir into the shake. Top with Reddi-wip and a cherry, and enjoy!
