Easy Boots Banana Freakshake Recipe
I was so excited when I first saw the trailer for Dora and the Lost City of Gold! If you’re like me and watched hundreds of episodes of the cartoon version with your kids, you might be excited for this live-action adventure too. It’s so fun that Dora, Diego and Boots are back! This new film in theaters August 9, will most definitely bring back memories.
To get you in the “swing” of things, I created the ultimate ice cream shake inspired by Dora’s best monkey friend, Boots. This easy Boots Banana Freakshake is filled with banana ice cream, gooey hot fudge, chocolate sprinkles, brownies, whipped cream and more! It’s delicioso!
What is the Dora movie about?
Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever – High School.
Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.
What is a Freakshake?
A freakshake is basically a mega huge milkshake combining ice cream with candy, then stacking the top of the cup with high calorie desserts such as brownies, candy bars, cotton candy and often entire slices of cake. It’s said the freakshake trend started in Australia, but now basically everywhere! If you can eat the whole thing, you’re a dessert loving rock star! ha!

There are many ways you can make a freakshake. I hope you enjoy some inspiration from this wild banana shake recipe. It will surely get you in the mood for the film in theatres soon.

Step 2: Spread a large spoonful of room temperature hot fudge around the bottom of a glass.
Step 3: Use a bread knife and add hot fudge around the rim of the glass. Use a damp paper towel to wipe excess and create a nice even strip of chocolate.
Step 4: Tilt glass over a large bowl or sink and sprinkle chocolate jimmies onto the hot fudge. Gently press down any sprinkles to secure. Set aside.
Step 5: Put brownies, rice krisipies treats or desired candy onto a wooden skewer. Set aside.
Step 6: Blend vanilla ice cream, half of a banana and milk to make a banana milkshake.

These brownies are so simple to make. The layers of cookies and brownies mix together to create the most delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies!
I couldn’t stop with just brownies and cookie batter. I went crazy and right after they came out of the oven, I topped it with dark chocolate Reese’s Cups candy! This of course is totally optional, but worth it. If you make brownies, you might as well go all out right?
Cover your brownies with your favorite candy or nuts. I really loved the dark chocolate candy and so did the party guests!

- 1 package refrigerated peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough
- 1 box brownie mix
- 1-2 eggs (depends on brownie mix)

- While brownies are baking, chop candy into crumbs. Sprinkle candy onto the brownies as soon as you take them out to cool. Candy should melt onto brownies.
- Let cool and cut brownies.
I used Ghirardelli Chocolate Supreme Brownie Mix it only takes 1 egg.
If you can’t find Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie dough, you can make your own from scratch or get Peanut Butter Cookie Dough and add chocolate chips to the brownie mix.

Oreo Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
The best of strawberries and OREO cheesecake in one fabulous bite! Easy no-bake chocolate strawberry dessert is a perfect bite sized recipe for any party.
- 4 cups Strawberries, whole ((1 lbs total))
- 24 Mini Oreos or Mini Graham Crackers ((for topping))
- 30 OREO Cookies, crushed
- 5 ounces Soft Cream Cheese
- 8 ounces Soft Cream Cheese
- 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
- 1/2 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
Optional LOW CARB Cheesecake Filling:
- 8 ounces Soft Cream Cheese
- 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
- 1/4 cup Splenda
Cut off the strawberry stems. Remove the inside of the strawberry with a small knife and spoon to create a cup for the filling.
- Trim the pointed strawberry tip with your knife so the strawberry will stand upright. Place on a cookie sheet.
Make the OREO cheesecake filling by crushing the cookies with a food processor or place in a large zipper plastic bag and smash with a rolling pin. With a spoon, mix 1 package of softened cream cheese with the crushed cookies.
Spoon the OREO filling into the strawberries.
In another bowl, beat 8 ounces cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla with a mixer until fluffy.
Place the cream cheese mixture in a pastry bag and pipe into the top of the Oreo stuffed strawberries.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve. Only make 4-5 hours before serving or your strawberries will get soggy.
- Right before serving, garnish with a mini Oreo cookie or graham cracker. (cookies will get soggy if you add these too early)
If you only want the cheesecake stuffed strawberries. Omit the OREO cookies and only get 1 package of cream cheese.
