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. ♥

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

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.

Recipe Notes:

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

      • Glad to hear you’re having a good bday! The blueberry cheesecake bars are definitely not guilt-free, but they are better than a slice of cheesecake (if you only have one bar, not two or three…)!

  3. Happy birthday! I hope it’s amazing! This looks great by the way. I’ll definitely have to make this, I’ve been loving banana “shakes”. A little cocoa powder and peanut butter isn’t bad either 🙂

  4. Yum! That looks like such a great dessert…or even breakfast! Great way to use up those bananas!

  21. 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! 🙂

    • THanks so much Ari! You should make a meal out of some white chocolate covered pretzel cookies and these milkshakes 😉

  22. Happy birthday beautiful!! So glad that you get to celebrate wtih something so vibrant, colourful and guilt-free! I’ve still not made the banana soft serve; primarily because my blender broke yesterday whilst making a cheesecake! I need to get that Ninja! I hope that this year will be one of your best yet. Thanks for sharing this lovely concoction with us! xx

    I hope you had a great time in Philly (I can’t believe we’re from the same hometown!) and celebrated properly 😉

    This shake looks great!!!

  26. Funfetti AND healthy? Heck yea there’s nothing to lose

  27. Happy belated Birthday!! I too celebrate birthdays for weeks at a time, but everyone thinks I’m crazy! I would hope that the day was awesome, but if you were drinking this shake then it obviously was.

    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.
