Strawberry/Banana Milkshake & Rocky Road

I have a serious sweet tooth and love nothing more than indulging in some chocolatey goodness with a refreshing drink. So today I'm sharing one of my favorite afternoon snacks. Strawberry and banana milkshakes served with the easiest to make dessert ever - Rocky Road.


Strawberry and Banana Milkshake

Ingredients:- strawberries, banana, milk, vanilla ice cream.

Chop up the strawberries and the banana. Put all the fruit into an electric blender. Add milk and lots of ice-cream (the more ice-cream you add the thicker the shake will be, I love them thick!). Whizz in the blender till smooth. Ta da! It's done. So so simple!


Rocky Road



Ingredients:- 200g milk chocolate, handful each of marshmallows/walnuts and crushed digestive biscuits.

Place the chocolate in a bowl and microwave on full power for 80 secs. Stir the chocolate to remove any lumps. Add all the other ingredients and stir until all ingredients are covered in chocolate. Pour the mix into a foil tray or square baking tray. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes. Remove from fridge and cut into squares. Easy Peasy!

So there you have it. A lovely afternoon treat which is delicious and oh so unhealthy but who cares about calories when it tastes that good. It's also perfect for making with children!

Try it out.

  4. I luuuurve rocky road and am a huge lover of creamy thick milkshakes.... yum! My friends sent me a care package filled with edible goods, including a Crunchie Bar. The man loved it so much i'm going to attempt to make it myself this week!

  5. I love strawberry-banana smoothies. So yum. If it's a breakfast smoothie, I'll use yogurt. If it's a dessert smoothie, it's ice cream all the way!
