Banana Blueberry Dairy-Free Milkshakes

It’s hard to believe this thick, creamy milkshake is low oxalate and dairy-free.  My boys love to slurp down these dairy-free milkshakes, then show-off their milkshake mustaches.  Banana blueberry dairy-free milkshakes make a perfect summer treat or even breakfast-on-the-go (They are to0 thick for sippy cups — add extra coconut milk or let the shake thaw a little before serving to a toddler.)  I especially like to serve dairy-free milkshakes with hamburgers and butternut squash “fries” as a nostalgic reminder of my childhood (We eat our hamburgers grain-free on a bed of lettuce with a tomato slice or with Kinnikinuck Tapioca Rice Gluten-free Hamburger Buns– 8.3 mg. oxalate per bun) .

Enjoy this cool treat!

Banana Blueberry Dairy-Free Milkshake

Dairy-Free Milkshake Mustache!

Banana Blueberry Dairy-Free Milkshakes

1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup coconut milk
1 T honey or 3-4 drops liquid Stevia (optional)

Put all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth (if your freezer is super cold you may have to let the banana thaw 10-15 minutes before mixing in order for it to blend).  Pour into two frosty mugs and enjoy!

Makes two 7-8 ounce milkshakes

Oxalate Note:  Bananas are a medium oxalate fruit with 5.3 mg. oxalate per medium banana.  All other ingredients are low or very low oxalate.  Banana Blueberry Dairy-Free Milkshakes have about 4.5 mg. oxalate per serving.

Substitutions and Variations:  You can substitute strawberries for the blueberries (raising the oxalate content to about 6 mg. per shake).  You might also wish to add a couple tablespoons rice protein, egg white protein or pea protein powder.  DO NOT leave out the banana — frozen bananas are what give this shake its thick, creamy texture!

Other Diets:  Banana Blueberry Dairy-Free Milkshakes may also be suitable for gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, Paleo, GAPS, SCD and GFCF diets.
