Real California Milk Recipes | Classic Banana Milkshake + Banana Ice Pops

It's summer time!

My daughter always looks forward to the healthy and delicious snacks I prepare for her when she gets back home from school. To beat the season's hot and humid weather, I often make a variety of fruit shakes for my little darling.

She is one picky eater so I always look for ways to make eating healthy and nutritious food exciting for her. Since banana is one of her favorite fruits, I surprised her with a banana milkshake when she got home from school. She was feeling under the weather earlier today so this was definitely a welcome treat for her.

Classic Banana Milkshake | Recipe


  • 1 cup Real California Milk
  • 1 ripe banana cut into cubes
  • 4 ice cubes


  • Put banana, Real California Milk and ice in a blender
  • Blend until smooth 
  • Pour it in a tall glass

"This is so good, mom!"

Frozen Treat | Banana Ice Pops

My daughter requested that we make another serving of Banana Milkshake because according to her "It was so good, mom!". Little did she know that I had another idea in mind, we are making Banana Ice Pops 😄 

Follow the directions on how to make a Banana Milkshake then pour the contents of the blender in a mold. You can make about 6 or 8 popsicles depending on the size on the mold. Place the mold in the freezer for approximately 4 hours. My little one ate one Banana Ice Pop as her afternoon snack. With the scorching heat, it surely is a frozen treat!

#RealCaliforniaMilkPhilippines | #LookForTheSeal

Shopping for dairy products? Look for top quality food made with 100% real California Milk that feature the Real California Milk seal. The seal can be found on different milk cartons (sample shown above), ice cream and different types of cheeses. When you see the Real California Milk seal, you'll feel good knowing that the product is certified as having been made with 100% Real California Milk from Real California Dairy families. Not only that, products bearing the Real California Milk seal mean that they are power-packed with calcium, protein and other nutrients in each serving.

Did you know that California now ranks first in the U.S for the production of milk, ice cream, butter, non-fat dry milk and whey protein concentrate? It also ranks as the second largest producer of cheese and yogurt, but is the leader in the production of Mozzarella, Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses.

Why settle for anything less? On your next trip to the supermarket, take a closer look at the chiller for products with the Real California Milk seal and make the healthier choice.
