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 accessorized 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.

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.

Description

An easy and delightfully delicious 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 pure vanilla extract
  • sprinkles*

Instructions

  1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender that will blend up the frozen banana.
  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.

Notes

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

  1. 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!

    1. 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 šŸ™‚

  2. 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 šŸ˜€

    1. 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. 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. šŸ˜€ woah.

  4. 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 šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚

  5. Happy Birthday!! wow this looks so good. I think I already know what I’ll be having for breakfast tomorrow shh

  6. 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!!

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

    1. 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!

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

  11. 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?
