Ingredients:

4-6 strawberries

1 banana

1 cup milk

ice cubes (optional)

Method:

  1. First, pour the milk into a blender.
  2. Slice the banana and if you want, the strawberries. Most recently, I have begun using strawberry puree ice cubes (home made), but both work perfectly.
  3. If you want an absolutely chilled drink, add ice cubes. Then, turn the blender on and voila! You’ve got your Strawberry-banana milkshake!
