With my birthday fast approaching I’ve been feeling a little old especially thinking back to my childhood days. One thing that makes me smile is the memories of sitting on the counter while my Dad made us chocolate milk; it was one of our favorite treats on his days off. It is funny how the simple things stick with you the most from your childhood.
Who’s been with me over the years to remind me of my chocolate milk days? Dairyland! Did you know they’ve been an iconic Western Canadian company since 1917? They’re celebrating 100 years of providing fresh, local milk to Western Canadian families with new vintage limited edition packaging. Now you can remember the fun milk memories from your childhood too!
Dairyland’s horse and wagon delivery days might be over, but their commitment to delivering products of the highest quality isn’t. You’re going to love their 100th-anniversary celebration, full of fun contests and exciting news. Follow Dairyland on Facebook, so you don’t miss out on anything.
Our #Dairyland100 Custom Milkshake
To celebrate the simple things that bring us closer together as a family we’re creating new milk memories with our very own custom Dairyland milkshake! With four people in the house creating one milkshake recipe we all love was a challenge, but one we were happy to take on.
Strawberry Banana Milkshake Recipe
The kids came up with this recipe on their own as a compromise between their two favourites – banana and strawberries. The ice cream recipe we’ve included can easily be adapted to any flavour you like, just substitute the frozen banana for 2 cups of frozen fruit.
Strawberry Banana Milkshake Ingredients
- 2 cups banana ice cream (recipe to follow)
- 1 cup of Dairyland milk (we like whole milk for a creamier milkshake)
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- Chocolate sauce
- Whipped cream
- Maraschino cherries
Super Simple Banana Ice Cream Ingredients
- 2 frozen bananas
- ¼ cup Dairyland milk
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Splash of vanilla
- ¼ tsp lemon juice
Strawberry Banana Milkshake Directions
- Combine ice cream ingredients in a blender and process until smooth, place in freezer until needed. No need to clean the blender, you’ll use it later.
- Set up your milkshake cup station with plates of chocolate sauce and sprinkles.
- Place banana ice cream, milk and sliced strawberries in blender and process until you reach desired consistency.
- Dip rim of milkshake cup in chocolate sauce and then sprinkles, fill with milkshake, and top with whipped cream and a cherry!
The recipe makes enough for four servings if you’re sharing. The kids love the milkshake straight out of the blender! As a Mom I’m thrilled because it is full of healthy ingredients and a special treat I’m happy to make with them.
