My children don’t eat a lot of fruit except for my daughter. They boys are rather lazy and eat fruit such as bananas or grapes (only when they are washed) so I have to peel them to get them to eat some. What they like very much is milkshakes and sometimes instead of giving them plain fruit to eat I prepare them a milk shake.

I am submitting this milkshake recipe to Shriekha, of Me and My Kitchen, who is hosting the event Ice Creams and Milkshakes.

Milkshake with 3 fruit, whipped cream and ice cream

Ingredients for 4 glasses:

  • 3 glasses of milk
  • 2 – 3 different kind of fruit (I used 1 banana and 1 pear and 2 peaches)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 scoop of ice cream for each glass (this time I used chocolate flavour)
  • 1 spoonful of whipped cream
  • 4 ice cubes.

For whipped cream:

1 whipping cream 35%

1 spoonful of icing sugar

4 spoonfuls of Greek strained yoghurt


Whip the whipping cream until stiff, add yoghurt and sugar and whip. Refrigerate.

Place fruit in the blender with honey, ice cubes and milk and beat them well until everything becomes a rich, creamy drink.

Serve in glasses and add the whipped cream and ice cream and serve.

    Ok, you sound like my sons. I can adopt you :)

  4. Ivy

    Thanks Kristen, shall be looking forward to adopt a newbie.

  5. I love milkshakes I don’t know why I haven’t had one in years…you have inspired me sis:D

  6. Ivy

    I love them too val, but if it wasn’t for the kids I doubt if I would make any for myself.

  7. Psychgrad says:

    Great source of hidden fruit. We have smoothies a couple of time a week, so yummy.

  8. RecipeGirl says:

    Ah, so I should consider myself lucky that my 6 year old will eat every fruit on the planet? With the skin on too? Yay!

    I like the recipe for the milkshakes that you posted… that there seems to be more milk than ice cream. It’s got to be a little better for you than pure ice cream, right?

    Psychgrad, to be frank I usually make it with milk, honey and fruit and they love it like a flavourful milk. I rarely make it with ice cream and whipped cream and today I prepared it like this, just for the event and of course they were thrilled.

    RecipeGirl, you really are lucky that your daughter eats a lot of fruit, however, I am not sure about the skin being left on. I know that all the vitamins are in the skin but I am afraid of all the pesticides they use, even if we wash them thoroughly.

    That is a very good way to make your children eat some fruit. I love fruit and I always ate too much of it, but my sister was another story. My mom suffered making her eat any kind of fruit. LOL

    Great recipe my friend :D

  14. Ivy

    It seems that it worked the opposite way round in your family but there are a few fruit they do not even want to taste, such as figs which are my favourite but I don’t think I can use them in milkshakes.

  15. Maria says:

    Ivy this is one amazing looking shake and something my son would love too!

    mmmmm… wonderful, refreshing and healthy. Great for Summer heat at my balcony watching the ships & boats sailing on turquoise blue sea… I don’t care the whipping cream addition :-) Another Jug (read carefully, not ‘glass’ ) please :-D


  17. Ivy

    How nice to have a view of the ships and boats sailing Pixen. I will trade the view of your balcony with a jug of milkshake :D Not a fair trade ah….

  22. My kids like smoothies too. A lot. In the summer, I make those every day! I like your idea of reserving the cream and dairy as a topping.

  23. Alex says:

    This is a way to serve some healthy fruit that nobody could refuse. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I am sure it would be great with strawberries or blueberries as well.
