Who knew bananas could be frozen and whipped into a creamy ice cream? I already put overripe bananas in the freezer to save for banana bread so this recipe was calling me.  I really regret that I waited until today to make it even though I bookmarked this recipe ages ago. It was so good I ate it straight from the blender. Technically one banana serves one person, but I would definitely multiply it by two or even four.

1 large, overripe bananas
1 teaspoon – 1/2 tablespoon peanut butter, nutella, hot cocoa mix, honey, etc. (optional)

Peel bananas and cut into small chunks. Freeze for 1-2 hours. In a high powered blender or food processor, puree the bananas until creamy. If using a second ingredient, blend to combine. Enjoy!

This can also be frozen if you prefer a hard style ice cream.

I’m not much of a strawberry milkshake person (chocolate is always my choice), but the real strawberries make this a true contender!! It is also a great way to use up leftover strawberries as they can be stored in the freezer until you get a craving for a milkshake.

1/4 pound strawberries, hulled and sliced
3/4 Tablespoon sugar (this can be reduced if your strawberries are not very tart)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4-1 cup milk (based on your desired thickness)
1 cup strawberry ice cream

Toss sliced strawberries with vanilla and sugar. Freeze for at least an hour.

If your strawberries have been frozen for a while, you may need to slightly defrost them or use the ice crusher setting on your blender before adding the rest of the ingredients. Combine with milk and ice cream.

Blend until the shake reaches your desired consistency. Enjoy!


This blog is a way for me to keep track of all the recipes I have tried and want to make again, and a few I've come up with myself.
