Skinny Funfetti Milkshake.

An easy and delightfully delicious milkshake that tastes like funfetti cake with a fraction of the calories.

Skinny Funfetti Milkshakes. Tastes like cake with a fraction of the calories!

Birthdays are week-long celebrations for me. Heck, they should really be month-long, am I right?

Regardless, I’ve been hyping up my birthday all week on my blog but TODAY is the real deal. And I must post a funfetti recipe on my birthday, right?  I chose to put sprinkles in a milkshake last week. A little afternoon treat pumped up with rainbow sprinkles and accesorized with colorful straws.

The milkshake is made from bananas. Whipped bananas, to be exact. Have you ever whipped bananas before? It’s simple. Take a bunch of ripened bananas (super ripe), peel them, slice them, and freeze the slices. Blend the frozen slices together and you have 1 ingredient dairy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, and guilt-free ice cream. Mix it with some vanilla extract and it really tastes like vanilla soft serve!

Whipped Banana Ice Cream - made only from frozen bananas! Healthy, easy, vegan, and guilt-free.

For my funfetti milkshake, I added 1/4 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt and 1/4 cup of vanilla almond milk to the banana whip.  You may use regular yogurt and regular milk instead. The yogurt makes the milkshake extra creamy and the almond milk thins it out so it’s drinkable through a straw. Since I added yogurt, the milkshake is no longer vegan. Feel free to use soy yogurt instead.

I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the milkshake as well.

Oh! And let’s not forget about the sprinkles I added too. Always sprinkles.

Skinny Funfetti Milkshakes. Only 4 guilt-free ingredients and take 5 minutes! Gluten-free and healthy.

This milkshake is miraculous. It doesn’t even taste healthy.

Let’s discuss today’s photoshoot props. ♥

A creamy, thick vanilla milkshake that tastes like funfetti cake with a fraction of the calories.

The milkshake has a *very* slight banana taste.  If using vanilla greek yogurt, vanilla almond milk, and the vanilla extract — you will mask most of the banana flavor.  Make sure the bananas you slice and freeze are extra ripe.  Practically all brown.  The more ripe your bananas are, the better and creamier your milkshakes will be.

Skinny Funfetti Milkshake

Yield: 2 small or 1 large serving

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Print Recipe

A creamy, thick vanilla milkshake that tastes like funfetti cake with a fraction of the calories.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe large bananas, peeled, cut into chunks, & frozen
  • 1/4 cup vanilla almond milk (or your choice of milk)
  • 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (or regular yogurt, any fat content)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • sprinkles1

Directions:

  1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender that will blend up the frozen banana. I like this Ninja or this Vitamix.
  2. Blend the frozen banana chunks and milk together until thick, creamy, and smooth - about 4 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed.
  3. Add the yogurt and vanilla extract and blend for 1 minute. Pour into glass and stir in as many sprinkles as you'd like.

Additional Notes:

  1. Sprinkles might bleed their color. Do not stir them too vigorously into the milkshake.

      I know how much you love the banana whip by itself, so you need to try it as a creamy milkshake. With sprinkles, of course! Thanks for the bday wishes Dorothy!

    Hold please. I need to do a happy dance for, like, an hour. Ice cream and milkshakes are MY THING, and I have had the banana soft serve on my list, but I never remember to freeze the bananas. I know I’ve told you lots of your recipes are my favorite, but I really think this one wins–so healthy, so simple, and I could have dessert FOR BREAKFAST! Day, made. Happy birthday again my brilliant recipe creating friend! 🙂

    The shake… It looks the opposite of healthy but wow does it sound good! I have to try that banana trick, it seems to be all the rage now.

        Thanks. I was born in Trinidad. The drink is called Peanut Punch, an acquired taste for most americans. http://www.marthastewart.com/349110/peanut-punch. Usually peanut butter (or raw peanuts), vanilla extract, milk (sometimes with condensed milk), bitters and nutmeg or any variation of the above. Your banana and almond milk base made for a healthy yet tasty version and has helped curb my cravings for ice cream for the past week.

    I love your recipes for breakfasts! I’m a teacher so there are times I am so busy, breakfast is the only meal I will eat sadly till 4-6pm! I leave for work when its still dark outside so am trying to avoid waking up my husband since I leave earlier than he does. Have you ever tried making these shakes the night before and keeping them in the freezer or fridge overnight? Worried they will become runny and lose their amazing shake texture!

      Hey Corie! I’ve made these before and kept it in the fridge overnight. Much better than leaving gin the freezer overnight. It’s slightly liquidy and not as creamy, but still quite good!

    Hey, Sally.

    I was going to make this for my girlfriend for Valentine’s Day.

    I accidentally bought regular Greek yogurt instead of vanilla Greek yogurt, is this going to affect the taste at all and can I make up for it by using more vanilla extract?

      regular is just fine– I would add an extra 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
