Looking for a healthy and nutritious breakfast or treat to fuel you up in the afternoon? Make this delicious gluten-free Fruit Freakshake – Packed with fresh fruit and no added sugar!
This Fruit Freakshake is the perfect treat to enjoy on a hot day. I love making it during the weekend, as I have more time to dress it up with all the fruit on top. BUT, if you don’t fancy all the yummy décor, this gluten-free Fruit Freakshake takes just 5 minutes to make, making it a perfect breakfast-on-the-go on busy mornings.
This is definitely not an ordinary milkshake though, is loaded with fresh fruits, highly nutritious thanks to the fresh whole a2 Milk™ added in, and healthier than the average milkshake thanks to my secret nice cream trick.
We’ve been hooked to nice cream since I first made it years ago. We eat it regularly, so it was no brainer for me to use it in place of regular ice-cream in this awesome Fruit Freakshake!
If you have never heard of nice cream, is a magic ice-cream made with frozen chopped banana blended up into soft serve. It takes literally 3 minutes to make and you’ve got the most delicious and healthy ice cream ever.
To make this Fruit Freakshake, I’ve used frozen banana as a base, then added mango and milk for the lower layer, and fresh and frozen berries for the top one. The best part is that you don’t need to add any extra sugar, as the banana sweeten things up naturally.
This nutrient-packed Fruit Freakshake is easy to customize with your favorite fruit. I love the sweetness of the mango contrasting the tart flavour of fresh berries. But feel free to experiment with any other fruit that will give a similar contrast of flavour.
The milk I used for making this delicious freakshake is the long-time favourite a2 Milk™.
This award-winning brand produces milk naturally free from the A1 milk protein, which may cause health issues to people who are dairy intolerant.
I’ve been dairy intolerant for years, but since discovering a2 Milk™ I was able to re-introduce milk in my life, without all the discomfort I used to have, so I highly recommend it!
Since World Milk Day is just around the corner, why don’t celebrate the benefits of drinking milk with this smoothilicious Fruit Freakshake?
