Healthy Coffee Frappe


Making banana milkshakes and Ice cream is a GREAT way to feel like you are eating something “dessert-like,” when, in reality, you are just eating a banana or two.

Bananas are filled with potassium and lots of other great stuff.  This healthy frappe has no added sugar, even though bananas have lots of natural sugar, it’s the right kind.  This healthy frappe is an excellent alternative to drive through frappuccinos, with lord only knows how many calories and grams of sugar.

This afternoon, when both kids were sleeping, I made a four-ingredient banana -Coffee Frappe.  It was beautiful and “blended-like” Just like those SUPER naughty frappes at Starbucks ( that I used to INHALE with no consequence when I was a teenager).  But this had no added sugar, and it was only FOUR ingredients.

Adding Vanilla extract to ” Frozen Banana” Based desserts is the secret.  It truly makes it taste like the REAL thing.
I think that it is super important to use Kirkland Signature Pure Vanilla, 16 Ounce, which is all-natural. It’s so much better. Kirkland Signature Pure Vanilla, 16 Ounce

This was so decadent!  I can’t believe it took me THIS long to make it!  ( I had thought about it for a while now)
