A wonderful milkshake that can easily be adapted for low-sugar diets. My mother got me started on this 20 years ago. I rarely add sugar or sweetener, but I realize that some people enjoy a bit more sweetness. You can substitute orange juice for milk if you like.

This is fairly simple to change to a low carb low sugar drink. I substituted non-fat half and half for the milk and splenda for the table sugar. I used 1 packet of splenda since I find it to be very sweet. I also used baking cocoa rather thank chocolate drink mix and it was yummy. You do have to blend this very well with these changes but if you're on a low carb low sugar diet this is fabulous. Read More

It was good but not that great. I added more strawberries and more vanilla extract for more taste. Read More

I was looking for a milkshake that didn't have ice cream in it as we were out of it =) Very tasty very airy and light milkshake. Good taste. I didn't use straight strawberries but blueberries and cranberries as well - I had a mixed packet =) Came out gorgeous! I also added more banana and chocolate. The way it is right now is (as author said) a bit less sweet than most milkshakes =) Read More

My family really enjoyed this milkshake. It is filling enough to satisfy the kids after a day at the pool or as an afterschool snack. I use ovaltine mix as it was what I usually have on hand. Read More

This recipe was great. I didn't use the banana so it had more of a strawberry flavor but it was very good. Read More
