Kiwi & Banana Milkshakes With Chocolate Covered Kiwi Pieces

Pin It PIN IT!

Also known as, your Memorial Day dessert! Trust me, you won’t want anything else after you have a refreshing sip (and crunch) of one of these kiwi & banana milkshakes with chocolate covered kiwi pieces. Oh yes, you read that right. Chocolate covered kiwi pieces, let that just marinate in your mind for a minute.

Low Fat Kiwi & Banana Milkshake

Have you ever had a chocolate covered kiwi? I got the idea on Pinterest and want to punch myself in the face for not trying it sooner. Kiwis are SO tart on their own, so the chocolate coating really mellows that out, creating the perfect tart, sweet and slightly crunchy treat. I may (or may not, jury is still out) have enjoyed about 4 chocolate covered kiwi pieces this morning already. Because I clearly want to look really good in my bikini this weekend when I’m on the boat.

Look at that? Can you actually blame me? Plus, it’s fruit, so it’s healthy. RIGHT? Eating 15 of these kiwi chocolate bites may not be super good for my figure, but this milkshake sure is! It’s made from low-fat vanilla bean ice cream, bananas, fresh kiwi and skim milk. That’s it! Then it’s topped with a bit of fat-free whipped cream and some chocolate chips. And the best thing is, it tastes like its loaded with fat.

Low fat kiwi and banana milkshake

One of my favorite challenges with my job is making lower fat, good for you food taste like it’s the complete opposite. And this milkshake is exactly that. When you’re dieting, or watching your weight, or just trying to live a healthier lifestyle, you miss the things you ate/drank/enjoyed when you weren’t. Which is why I love making light recipes that taste like the ones we wish we could enjoy all the time.

Seriously. Make this milkshake this weekend. And try not to eat 15 chocolate covered kiwi pieces. Just try. If you succeed, I will send you a million dollars.

Kiwi & Banana Milkshakes With Chocolate Covered Kiwi Pieces

Low fat milkshake recipe


Serves 2. Kiwi pieces yield about 5.
Prep time: >5 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes


For the milkshake: 

  • 2 large scoops low-fat vanilla bean ice cream
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and chopped
  • Fat-free whipped cream

For the chocolate covered kiwi pieces: 

  • 1 kiwi, sliced (about 5 pieces)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (we used milk chocolate)
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil


  1. To make the kiwis, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Add canola oil and stir until mixture is very liquidy. Stick a lollipop stick or toothpick into the kiwis and roll into the chocolate and liberally coat. Place kiwis on a small wire cooling rack (make sure they are standing upright) and freeze for about an hour (or until set).
  2. To make the milkshakes, blend the ice cream, bananas, milk and kiwis together. Blend until smooth and slightly thick. Pour into mason jars or milkshake glasses. Garnish with whipped cream, one chocolate covered kiwi piece and chocolate chips.

    Last year I saw chocolate covered kiwi and I was going to try that but haven't had a chance. It goes really well with kiwi banana milkshake!
