Healthy, vegan Banana Nice Cream Milkshakes in three tasty flavors: strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate. Low in calories, high in yum!

So it’s my birthday today! I’m turning a whopping 25 years (i.e. a quarter of a century) old, and am therefore giving a hard “no” to acting my age by celebrating with milkshakes. Because isn’t that what adulthood is all about? Getting to drink milkshakes whenever you want and watch a whole season of Homeland in a day without feeling bad about it? Right? Yes? *please say yes*

The Dutch do birthdays a bit differently than in America. Rather than being showered in sweets and cakes from friends and family, in Holland you’re expected to bring your own cake. On the tulip-man’s birthday, he looked like a complete cake junkie, running to the bakery twice on his special day to appease his coworkers and family. I intend on celebrating in Dutch-American fusion style, i.e. by bringing big, gooey, American brownies!

And what about these milkshakes, you ask? Well what’s an adult-aged birthday if not for multiple indulgences? (Though these nice cream milkshakes are only a borderline indulgence.) With a frozen banana base and no refined sugar, these are an ultra-healthy way to satisfy your milkshake craving, without all the unnecessary fat and calories!
