Strawberry Blue Concrete ~ a Raw and Vegan Recipe for Kids!

serves 2 ~ $1.45 per serving




  • 3 bananas, sliced and frozen ($.60)
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries, frozen ($1.69)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, frozen ($.60)
  • stevia and/or agave, to taste

A "concrete" is a very thick shake ... thick enough to have to eat it with a spoon. And this is a fun and tasty breakfast or treat for any kid.

In a food processor fitted with an "S" blade, process the frozen bananas until creamy. Add water as needed until the mixture is a thick, soft serve ice cream consistency. Add about half the frozen strawberries and process again until smooth. Add a couple droppers of stevia and/or agave, until you like the level of sweetness. You may not need any sweetener at all if you use very ripe bananas.

Spoon out and set aside about half the mixture. Then, add more frozen strawberries to what remains, and process again until smooth. Spoon out and set aside about half of this mixture, as well. Finally, add the frozen blueberries to what is left and process again until smooth.

Layer the different mixtures in a glass. And don't forget a spoon!

  1. What a treat! I've only recently started using frozen bananas to make ice cream and was amazed at how creamy and smooth it was. I'd love to try your combination of berries and banana, it sounds delish! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

    2. This is similar to what we call banana ice cream in our house. Put 1 frozen chopped banana in a blender with 2 tbsp almond milk (or your choice milk)and 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup. Blend until smooth (will need to scrape down the sides at least a couple of times). Add 1 1/2 tsp carob powder and blend until well mixed. This looks like chocolate ice cream and tastes delicious.
