Hey girl hey. And boy.
Banana milkshakes are probably my go-to whenever our bananas go brown. I heard banana bread is great as well but I usually just stick to milkshakes. This is more of a summer drink but if I can eat ice cream in the winter then it shouldn’t be a problem. 😂 Plus, if you live in Australia *
ahem Ellie*, then there you go. The “recipe” I’m using is super simple and doesn’t use vanilla ice cream, although you can add some if you have any. Okay, let’s get started.
What You Need
- Milk (yes, we have them in bags
- Bananas (I recommend one banana for 1-2 people and 3+ bananas for a family)
- Icecubes (optional)
- Honey (you can use sugar but like trynna stay healthy here plus it tastes just as good)
- Vanilla Extract & Vanilla Ice Cream (optional)
Peel your banana(s) 🙃
Break your banana(s) in two and drop them in the blender.
Now this depends on how thick you want your smoothie to be and how much milkshake you want. I usually add it to the height of the bananas and it ends up blending twice as big.
Here I use up about 500 mL so almost 2 cups but I also used 4 bananas so it just depends on your preference and quantity.
No specific measurements – just drizzle some on top. Here’s also where you’d add the vanilla extract and vanilla ice cream.
Add ice cubes (about 3-6) – if you are using ice cream, this step isn’t needed.
Blend blend blend.
It should take about 30 secs – 1 minute.
Step 7 *most important*
And there you have it! Do any of you have banana juice boxes where you live? I used to but they don’t have any in Canada. 😢 Oh well – I can make my own and now, you can too. 😂 If you happen to ever make this milkshake, don’t forget to share some through the screen. I’ll see you all in my next post.
