Strawberry-Banana Milkshake

Milkshakes, like ice cream, can be made in a wide variety of flavors. Many milkshakes get their distinct taste from the flavor of ice cream used. With a banana milkshake, it is the banana that owns the flavor. When using frozen bananas as a primary milkshake ingredient, it is possible to make a creamy, thick banana milkshake and eliminate the ice cream all together, thus reducing the total calorie count.
