Skinny Funfetti Milkshake

Or try my skinny cookies ‘n cream 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

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.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! I have always enjoyed blending frozen bananas with cocoa powder and peanut butter (as I am sure you would too based on your recipe collection!). This is really a yummy combo and satisfies my frequent craving for frozen treats! Thanks for constantly providing great recipes but also entertaining posts that really demonstrate the fun you have doing all of this!

    • Sally on May 29, 2013 at 9:04 am

      Hi Rachael! Thanks so much for the kind comment. And yes – I love frozen bananas with cocoa and a spoonful of peanut butter. It is the best! And 100% guilt-free 🙂

  2. Annie @ Annie's Noms on May 29, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    I hope you had a lovely birthday!! I’ve just put my almost dead bananas into the freezer so I can make this tomorrow! Never knew frozen banana would make it so creamy 😀

    • Sally on May 29, 2013 at 3:34 pm

      Dead bananas – I love it! That’s what my bananas look like before they are frozen too. The more brown, the better for these milkshakes. Thanks Annie!

  3. Megan {Country Cleaver} on May 29, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    I could totally get behind this colorful guilt free beauty!!

  4. Jess @ On Sugar Mountain on May 29, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    First off HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY SALLY!!!

    Second you’ve blown my mind – skinny funfetti milkshakes would have been enough but then you tell me whipped frozen bananas can taste like soft-serve. 😀 woah.

    • Sally on May 29, 2013 at 3:37 pm

  5. Amy on May 29, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Sally, you always have such cute treats!! I wish all of my desserts were as pretty as yours. Maybe I should start stocking up on sprinkles…

  6. Nutmeg Nanny on May 30, 2013 at 11:33 am

    I love this recipe 🙂 It looks and sounds incredible!

  7. Janis on June 5, 2013 at 10:58 am

    I’ve decided theses milkshakes will be a perfect idea at my daughters sweet ’16’ birthday party! Of course I will have to make one for myself to try them out first 🙂 🙂

    • Sally on June 5, 2013 at 11:24 am

      Perfect! I hope everyone enjoys.

  9. Anndy on June 5, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Sally!! This milkshake is sooo good I have made it twice in the past three days!!! For me, it tastes like ice cream. And it is so refreshing and easy to make!!! Actually, I’m waiting for my bananas to freeze. Loved this recipe!!

    • Sally on June 6, 2013 at 7:04 am

      It tastes like ice cream for me, too. Thanks Anndy! SO glad you love it.

  10. Tanna on June 11, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    I’m a little late, but Happy Birthday! I just finished slurping down my last few drops of this amazing milkshake! It was so good! My little boys were so excited that I was making “ice cream”! Love it!

    • Sally on June 11, 2013 at 8:42 pm

      I’m glad, Tanna! And thanks for the birthday wishes, too! I love this banana whip 🙂

    Sally. Thanks again for the recipe. I used the milk and bananas and added peanut butter as an old twist to a Trinidadian recipe. It was delicious. Thanks for the sharing.

    • Sally on July 10, 2013 at 1:57 pm

      Love your addition of peanut butter. YUM!

      • Lisa on July 10, 2013 at 2:10 pm

        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!

    • Sally on January 12, 2014 at 3:20 pm

      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!

  14. Jules on May 26, 2014 at 7:03 pm

    It was a bust for me, I’m afraid – bitter and overpoweringly banana (and I despise bananas). Sorry! 🙁

  15. Dana on June 25, 2014 at 9:11 pm

    Hi Sally- would this work with regular, unfrozen bananas? Thanks!

    • Sally on June 26, 2014 at 11:07 am

      No – the frozen bananas are what give it a thick, creamy, ice-cream-like texture.

  16. Jack Mirus on February 10, 2015 at 7:12 pm

    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?

    • Sally on February 10, 2015 at 7:28 pm

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

      • Jack Mirus on February 10, 2015 at 7:30 pm

        Wow, that was fast! Haha.

        Thanks, I’ll do that!

        Cheers,

        Jack
