And they’re kind of completely appropriate with summer right around the corner.
Oh yeah, and um they’re kind of the best thing I’ve ever tasted in my life.
Yes, I’m aware that I hardly ever share drink recipes on my blog. And I promise that is changing. For now, let’s just say that these milkshakes will more than make up for it. 😉
Fact: These milkshakes are low-calorie, refined sugar-free, and gluten-free.
Fact: Because of the above fact, it is totally okay to have two of these milkshakes. Heck, you could even have them for breakfast.
Can you tell I’m unbelievably excited about these awesome ‘thangs?? They are SO. DANG. GOOD. Cold, creamy, and completely ADDICTING. Yep, caps are totally necessary. I want to scream to the world how amazing these milkshakes are.
I almost named these milkshakes Monkey Milkshakes, but at the last second I decided against it because, well, that didn’t sound too appetizing to me.
The main reason “monkey” came to mind, is because these milkshakes are mainly composed of frozen bananas, andddddd because my siblings acted like total monkeys when I set these milkshakes on the table.
Most of my desserts have that effect on people. What can I say? 😉
When I tested this milkshake recipe last week, you would not BELIEVE how fast my family slurped them up. I’m pretty sure they all suffered from brain freeze, but they all say it was worth it. 😉
When I made these milkshakes again on Monday, I could swear they disappeared even twice as fast as the first time.
These creamy milkshakes taste like they’re made with ice cream, but it’s actually frozen bananas disguised as ice cream. This eliminates about half the calories you would find in a regular ice cream-milkshake.
You’re only going to need 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to make these milkshakes. Yes, you read that right. FIVE.
They’re not weird ingredients either that you can’t even pronounce: Frozen bananas, creamy peanut butter, plain yogurt, almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer) and just a little bit of coconut sugar for sweetening.
Just these natural, whole ingredients make for a pretty good milkshake. And now you have a use for all those overripe bananas you may have sitting on the counter. Freeze ’em up and make this milkshake.
All you’ll need to do is throw all the ingredients in a blender or a food processor. Blend it til it’s nice and pretty-looking. And devour ASAP.
Oh my gosh, a spoon is just begging to be dipped into that awesome stuff. ♥
Okay, It’s actually 7 ingredients if you count the whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Which, by the way, are completely necessary on top of these milkshakes.
Any kid is going to FLIP for these fun milkshakes. No one will be able to resist them. No kid-at-heart either, I can tell you firsthand. 😉
It tastes like you’re eating an elaborate 1000-calorie ice cream shop milkshake, but you’re actually indulging in something that’s good for you.
