My shrimp love fresh bananas. I've had good success with just about any veggie or fruit I've ever given them. I haven't fed the tank in about 2 weeks specifically for them, though, except to drop in some algae-covered plants which they ferociously cleaned off for me.

+1 on blanched baby spinach (organic). Put one leaf in a mug of water and pop it into the oven for 3-4 minutes, then dip the leaf in cold water and your ready to go.

Homemade food can be easy to make if you have some key ingredients. Any veggie can be served if your can turn it into a fine powder and make it into a jello.

Mustard flour, hemp flour, yeast, stinging nettle tea, spinach, spirulina, krill, gammarus. All can be mixed and bound with honey or vegan gelatin.

Most of the raw ingredients good for shrimp can be found at your local pet-shop but in another section, dedicated to rodents. Barley pellets, peas, beet, dried leaves treats for bunnies, mineral stones for birds. These raw materials provide to rodents and birds the same ingredients crustaceans need to build their shell.

Of course, commercial shrimp food is better as it contains the right ratios of ingredients. But if you don't have any available to you, homemade can be better than plain fish food anytime.

The point is, the search function works and this question is asked about a dozen times a week.
