 Have you ever had a banana whip before?

What’s a banana whip, you ask? There’s a little spot on the boardwalk that sells pure frozen banana whips. Frozen banana chunks blended into ice cream consistency… and it tastes EXACTLY like vanilla soft serve.

I make it at home all the time. Peel your brown spotty bananas, chop them up, freeze the chunks, and blend them. Boom! Healthy 1 ingredient vegan vanilla soft serve. ↓

1 Ingredient Frozen Banana Soft Serve

This frozen banana whip is the base for my strawberry banana milkshakes. I make these fruity milkshakes all the time.  They’re one of my favorite afternoon snacks, especially when all I want is something sweet and refreshing. Sometimes I add different fruits to the banana base, but it’s usually strawberry.  I like pink drinks. 😉

Thick strawberry milkshakes are a weakness of mine.  But let’s face it, I’d rather eat my calories in chocolate chunk cookies than drink them.  You can have a strawberry milkshake that tastes exactly like the kind from your favorite drive-thru – and it’s made from pure fruit! Pretty hard to believe, right?!

The milkshakes are made from frozen banana chunks, a few fresh strawberries, and a splash of milk.  You may keep them vegan by using soy or almond milk.  Make sure the bananas you freeze are extra ripe.  I usually buy a few bunches of bananas simply for the purpose of letting them rot and freezing the chunks to make milkshakes. 🙂

The riper the bananas, the sweeter they are, and the better your strawberry milkshakes will taste.

Sort of like how banana bread works, too. The more ripe your bananas, the better the bread will be.  Looking for banana bread?  You can’t miss my favorite banana bread recipe.

These milkshakes are a non-recipe recipe.  All you’re doing is blending three ingredients together!  But it’s incredible how amazing they taste considering how easy they are to make.  Simple, fresh, healthy ingredients make the best milkshakes and smoothies.

I always feel good drinking these. 3 ingredients, 5 minutes, done!!

  1. OMG! Your picture looks so ‘pinklicious’. As with any other gal, pink has always been my weakness.

    I’ve always used to blending my banana, strawberry and the ice together. Freezing the banana is something for me to try out.

    But I’ve got 1 question. You mentioned ‘rotten banana’ and freeze them up. Does it have to be rotten?

    • Hi Stephanie. It should be incredibly ripe– the riper, the sweeter the banana and the less “banana-y” it tastes after being frozen then whipped.

  2. Love strawberry milkshakes!!’ And I love this healthier option!

  4. Hey sally, I dont have a blender so would it make a difference if I just stirred the bananas and milk or would you recommend me to buy a blender????
