If you love a good old fashioned milkshake like I do, get ready. I have a healthy milkshake recipe for you today that will not leave you feeling like you had to sacrifice taste for health. Because even when we’re trying to be super clean with our eating, we need a treat every now and again. Am I right? Well, this is a treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about. So, feel free to use your treat card for something else. Haha!
Since they aren’t exactly known for being the healthiest of snacks, I did a little research and came up with this easy healthy milkshake recipe flavored with strawberry, banana and peanut butter. It satisfies the craving of a cold creamy shake without you having to worry about drinking a weeks worth of calories in one gulp. Milkshakes can be down right sneaky when it comes to the old calories. Not that I’m subscribing to nitpicking every little calorie, but I don’t know if I want to consume a day’s worth in a few swipes. Just sayin’.
And another bonus is that I can feel good about handing one to my kiddo too! At his age, Jake is always on the go. I mean literally always…on…the…go. Foods like this healthier take on a milkshake are a great way for me to get some solid protein in him in mere minutes. Then he can go back to running all of his imaginary train rails in his mind. That kid lives for trains!

Light Strawberry Milkshake
These ingredients are simple and can be altered to fit what you have on hand at home. I used 1 large ripe banana, 1 strawberry greek yogurt that was 5.3 oz, 1/2 cup of vanilla low fat frozen yogurt, 2 tblsp. peanut butter, and about 1/2 cup of low fat milk. If you don’t love a peanut butter taste I would swap that out for a handful of fresh strawberries cut into quarters. Also, if you aren’t into measuring (which I totally get) a pint of frozen yogurt is about 2 cups so you can just scoop about a quarter of the pint into the blender.
Directions (Makes 2 servings approximately 1 cup each):
Place the banana in the freezer for about an hour. Slice the cold banana and place it in the blender along with the rest of the ingredients. Blend. If you want the shake to be a little thinner just add milk slowly until you get the consistency you like.
That’s all there is to it! This healthy milkshake recipe really is so easy and SO delicious! Enjoy!
