I’ve been a little afraid of making milkshakes since the time my blender broke.
A sad day indeed. It still unnerves me when the new blender whirs too loudly for fear of an explosion of glass and who-knows-what-else.
But, when I heard there were burgers for dinner I knew it was time to bury the demons. Alas, I didn’t have any ice cream on hand nor the wherewithal to go to the store just for one item. We all know what happened last time I made that journey…
I’m also pretty sure that we could all do with a little less ice cream in our lives come the end of summer.
That’s when I realised with a flash of over-excitement that I didn’t need ice cream for my milkshake. All I needed was some frozen bananas for a healthy, delicious and satisfying shake to go hand in hand with those burgers…let’s go people. Get ready.
Banana-Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Milkshake
makes one large shake or two small ones
- 2 frozen bananas (cut into chunks before you freeze them)
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Blend bananas, peanut butter, milk, and vanilla in a blender until smooth. Add the chocolate chips at the end and pulse or blend briefly until they are chopped and incorporated.
Pour, get a straw and feel the love!
