Strawberry Banana Frosty - Dairy-free - Sugar-free

I remember when I was younger my mom and I stopping by my future husband’s home and visiting with him. We had just stopped at Dairy Queen and picked up a strawberry banana shake – my favorite. I remember us all standing by his front porch and talking while I was sipping on that shake and thinking he is so handsome. It’s funny how food can be so attached to a memory isn’t it?

Now days I keep away from dairy and sugar so I had to come up with a replacement. This shake brings me right back to that summery day years ago and it’s still so yummy. Plus, now I can serve it to that handsome man I married and feel good about giving him a good, healthy treat.

  • I add collagen in my drinks to get an extra boost of nutrition and protein. It’s optional, but I think you would like it. You can read about all the benefits of collagen at Dr. Axe’s site. I recommend Custom Collagen or THM Integral Collagen.
  • I also add glucomannan to my shake to help thicken it up a little and give it a bit of creaminess. Without having cow-dairy you have to work a little harder to get that lovely creamy effect and the glucomannan really helps with that. Be careful to add it slowly to your foods when you use it, as it can clump up if not. It’s a healthy, no-carb, starch and a little goes a long way. I recommend Now Glucomannan or THM Glucomannan

Strawberry Banana Frosty photography

I wanted to add this photo to my post to give you a little peak at what happens when I am doing a photoshoot for my recipes. My youngest daughter, Emily Rose, is an excellent photographer and has been teaching me the ins and outs of phototgraphy. Often times when I get my food all set up for a shoot, she’ll go grab her camera and have some fun shooting, too. I found this photo on her camera capturing me “trying” to get the right shot. When you see an excellent photo on my blog, just know that it’s probably her work.
