Introducing the most beautiful milkshake of all…

Thee Funfetti Milkshake!

Not only is this milkshake simple & easy to make, it’s also delicious AND oh-so-pretty to look at. The milkshake is mostly made from whipped bananas, which gives it a nice soft serve taste!

Funfetti Milkshake Ingredients + Directions

Ingredients: (makes 1 large drink, or 2 smaller sized drinks)

  • 2 bananas, chopped & frozen (unpeel and cut into small chunks than freeze bananas in a container for a few hours until frozen)
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 generous scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • sprinkles (the most important part!) 

Directions:

1. Place all ingredients (EXCEPT for the sprinkles!) into blender & blend until smooth and creamy.

2. Pour mixture into glass and gently stir in as many sprinkles as you’d like.

Notes: 

  • Sprinkle colors will run/bleed, so be sure not to stir too much.
  • If you want to add the layer of sprinkles on top of the drink like in the photos, dip the top of the glass in corn syrup than into sprinkles. 🙂
  • If you want to skinnify this drink, omit the ice cream & add 1/4 cup Greek yogurt instead.

Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie

My pumpkin addiction continues with this Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie!

(I promise this will be the last pumpkin recipe for awhile 😉 )

Like almost every other girl, I am guilty of being obsessed with Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes & Frappuccinos. When September rolls around, they are literally the only thing I want to drink & they are one of my favorite things about Fall. What I don’t like is the $5 a drink price tag. (right ladies?!)

My mom & I decided to make our own Pumpkin Smoothie. Not only is it a lot cheaper to make, it is also healthier for you & super tasty!
