Banana Berry Blast and awards

Its the season of fresh ripe strawberries here and the ones got at this time are bright red and beautiful even to look at. What else do you need to grab a packet or two whenever you lay eyes on them. The recent pack that I got had a few berries which were slightly on the sour side and hence I added a very ripe banana to our milkshake and the shake was a blast of flavors.

~*What U Need*~
Strawberries - 6
Ripe Banana - 1
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 tbsp
Ice cubes - 2 to 3

For garnishing
Walnuts and whole strawberries

How I made it:
Hull the strawberries. In a blender, add the hulled strawberries, banana, milk, sugar and ice cubes and blend well.

Serve garnished with walnuts and whole strawberries.

Now onto the awards shared by my sweet fellow bloggers. Thanks a ton guys.
