Strawberry Faux Milkshake (non-dairy option)

Our kids like to cool down with a "milk shake" that is loaded with calcium, potassium and Vitamin C. G-man adds frozen fruit to the blender and the Cadet likes to press the buttons.  While we could use raspberries, blueberries, peaches or cherries, this is the version of the Faux Milkshake that they like best:

Strawberry Faux Milkshake
Blend well:

2-3 frozen, ripe bananas*
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup fresh, homemade yogurt (or non-dairy milk)
1 cup milk (or non-dairy milk)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Pour into cups, or sippy-cups with straws.

*When bananas get overripe on the counter, peel them and freeze in a ziplock for later. At times our grocery store will sell dark bananas at a steep discount and I swoop in and buy a couple dozen. Frozen bananas add texture to a faux milkshake that is close to ice cream.
