Strawberry Banana Milkshake Recipe #Dairyland100


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!

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
  • Sprinkles
  • 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

  1. 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.
  2. Set up your milkshake cup station with plates of chocolate sauce and sprinkles.
  3. Place banana ice cream, milk and sliced strawberries in blender and process until you reach desired consistency.
  4. Dip rim of milkshake cup in chocolate sauce and then sprinkles, fill with milkshake, and top with whipped cream and a cherry!
  5. Enjoy!

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.

    I remember coming home from school and having milk and cookies as a snack! I used to love dipping my chocolate chip cookies into the milk! I actually still do this! Yep I am a kid at heart.

  2. We used to get milk delivered to our door! On days when we were off school, we’d race out to talk to the milkman when we saw the Dairylands truck pull up on the street in front. Every once in a while, my mom would surprise us and put some chocolate milk on the order form. (Though she never let us order those orange and grape drinks they used to sell…)

  3. When I was pregnant my weird craving was milk. I loved drinking a large glass of cold milk. My son has always been a huge fan too.

  4. I grew up in the Maritimes where they didn’t have Dairyland milk. We had a favorite brand but when we moved out west in 2002, we found out they didn’t sell “our” brand in Western Canada. We actually went out and bought every brand we could find and held a taste test to see if any compared to the brand we grew up with. Dairyland was the clear winner and we haven’t bought any other brand since.

  5. I attended an elementary school that served a carton of Dairyland Milk with lunch almost everyday. I’m a picky eater soI didn’t even touch the lunch most of the time and was always hungry afterwards, but I became friends with one of the new kids in my class and we bonded over being picky eaters. We had mini competitions to see who can finish our lunch first – even if we didn’t like it. It was then that we learned to appreciate the goodness of milk and we looked forward to it at lunch.

  6. I have fond memories baking cookies with my mom – the fresh out of the oven cookies were always served up with a glass of milk

  7. My favourite milk memory is selling milk at school during the lunch break. The teachers got to pick who sold it, so it was always a big deal to be chosen!

  8. growing up we rarely had bought milk since we raised our own cows but I recall mom treating us once in a while to Dairyland chocolate or strawberry milk, that was so good

  9. I was a lunch monitor as a kid and we were rewarded with a carton of chocolate Dairyland milk. In the spring, we would freeze our chocolate milks to make a nice icy treat to enjoy after our “shift”. My mom never bought chocolate milk for us so I always looked forward to that carton of chocolate milk!

  10. Favorite milk memory was when I was little we had milk delivered in glass jars. After school it would be fresh milk and gramma’s baked cookies.

  11. My favorite milk memory is on hot summer days we would make floats with Pop Shoppe pop. Mostly orange floats, but sometimes root beer and grape too.

  12. My favourite memory is making our first milkshake with Dairyland Milk. My then boyfriend (now husband) had never tried milkshakes before so making it for him and watching him drink it was quite memorable.

  13. When I was child we didn’t have much to eat, but each morning before school my mom served me cup of milk before she sent me off to school. I looked forward to it each morning! Cup was sitting on table and my mom on a chair sitting with me watching me drink until I was done. She served it in my favourite cup that had small teddy bear on it .

  14. My favorite Dairyland milk memory is when we would go to my Gram’s and she would make us milkshakes. She has a counter like an old fashioned icecream shop and we would feel like we were in a restaurant. She even had little menus.

  15. On delivery mornings my Dad and I would like to drink chocolate milk that was half frozen from sitting outside from when the milkman dropped it off during the night.

  16. My fav memories of dairyland milk isn’t so much about milk themselves but remembering that once upon a time my grandma used to have milk delivered to house… milkman would come to door, Grandma would have her change ready…. And smiles from the grandkids coz we got fresh milk! (And no its not the bottles ones coz I am not that old!)

  17. My favourite milk memory is in the summer, whenever I was thirsty, I would love to have milk and sometimes, when my mom was not home, I love to add in some chocolate syrup to make it a chocolate milk

  18. When I was in elementary school I got to be the milk delivery person to each classroom back in the day when we could order cartons for lunch.

  19. My favourite milk memory is making hot chocolate as a kid. It was always a special day because I didn’t get much sugary food as a kid.

  20. Andrea Bilec

    My favorite milk memory is of my Oma. She used to make homemade hot cocoa on the stove top and the taste was just incredible because of the milk used.

  21. My grandmother waiting for us to get home from school, a plate of freshly baked chocolate cookies and a glass of milk at the ready.

  22. Back in elementary school my uncle was a milkman. He would come by our house to give my school friends & I free little chocolate milks as treats!

  23. I remember adding Nesquik to homogenized milk to make chocolate milk. I didn’t like the Strawberry Nesquik as much. 🥛🇨🇦

  24. One of my favorite milk memories was buying milk straight from a dairy farm. I think we bought two gallons for about $5!

    My favourite memory is when I was little and my Nana would let me have chocolate milk out of a special cup shaped like a cow!

  26. Going to my cousins house when I was around 5-6 and for a snack we had Oreos and milk and I remember watching my cousin dunk Oreos in milk which I thought was strange and I tried it and now to this day milk and cookies is one of my favourite snacks!
