On a hot summery day like this, what better way to spend the afternoon than going strawberry picking for some fresh ripe strawberries to make your own ice cream milkshake?
This milkshake recipe uses frozen bananas that I put in the refrigerator last night- I was silly and put them in the freezer with their skins on and then wrestled to remove the skins when I took them out without snapping the bananas in half! Before you freeze the bananas, peel off the skins, chop into pieces and seal in a freezer bag.
To make the milkshakes, blend 1 frozen banana in a blender with a large handful of strawberries, 1tsp vanilla extract, 2 heaped tbsp vanilla ice cream and 200ml unsweetened almond milk.
Blitz for about 2 minutes until smooth and then serve immediately in chilled glasses.
The retro straws I use in my photos are from a really good little shop in Cambridge, Ark.
