Strawberry-Banana Milkshake

>> Tuesday, October 14, 2008

It's been months since we moved to Florida and right from day 1, we have been hunting for a good farmer's market nearby. Suddenly, during the weekend on our way to the general shopping, we found this fresh farmer's market right opposite to out apartment community . All these days we were passing by the same road, but never noticed it. There is a nursery in the same market and each time I look at that place, all that strikes me is it's a nursery. But, we were so happy to have discovered this place, picked some fresh vegetables and fruits. We picked banana and strawberry. They were so fresh that I decided to make strawberry and banana milkshake. It came out really well that, I felt we should have bought more Strawberries.

I want to share this easy and quick dessert with you all. This recipe is for 2 people for 1 serving. Here goes the recipe:

Banana - 1
Strawberries - 1 cup
Whipped cream/ Ice cream - 1 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Sugar - 2 spoons
Milk - 2 cups (1%,2%,whole milk, soy milk, fat free, anything that you like)


1. Wash the strawberries and remove the stem. Cut them into half.
2. Peel the Banana skin and cut it into small cubes.
3. In a blender, take the chopped Strawberry and Banana, add 1 cup milk and blend it for 20-30 secs.
4. Now, add sugar,cream/ice cream, vanilla essence,remaining milk and blend it till it becomes a smooth mixture.
5. Add more sugar to the mix, as needed.
6. Serve it with ice/cream of your choice.

NOTE : If you don't have whipping cream, you can use ice cream for the blend. Vanilla or Strawberry flavor ice cream goes well. If you use vanilla ice cream, then no need to use the Vanilla essence. Otherwise, you need to add 1 spoon of essence.
