Healthy Milkshake

Our apartment in Washington gets hot during the summer. All we have are stand fans that don’t do a great job of circulating air (I know… no air conditioning is crazy to a Texan), so it gets really stagnant during the day. If I could I would eat ice cream and milkshakes all day to cool myself off. As you might know, I already eat a lot of ice cream with Dustin in the evening, so I try to stick to slightly healthier options during the day.

Frozen bananas, blended, make a great faux-ice cream, which along with Greek yogurt give me a fruit and protein-filled healthy milkshake. I also add one of my own baked treats or something sugary to give it a little sweetness, and sometimes if we have whipped cream topping on hand I’ll add a bit of that, too. The picture you see here is made with blackberry bark (white chocolate and dried blackberries) we got from a drive up to Snoqualmie Falls, testing out the new convertible! Yes, this milkshake was overflowing from the glass!

Oreos are another favorite add-in!
