Strawberry Milk Shake
The banana is used for creaminess, not flavor. I like my strawberry shakes to taste of strawberry and nothing else. However to decrease a touch on added fat and sugar the use of ½ frozen banana is just perfect.

½ pound strawberries slightly frozen
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup 2% milk
½ banana frozen
1 ½ cup all-natural vanilla ice cream

Place ingredients in a blend and process till smooth!
Enjoy with one chocolate cookie or a side of strawberries.
