Welcome to my ultimate thick homemade banana milk shake recipe.
Okay so I am going to be honest now and say this is far from healthy. After all, what is healthy about ice cream made out of thick cream? But it tastes amazing, it is perfect for summer and your kids will love it!
Well actually my dad would love it to, as would my mum, so if you want a summer cool down then here is your ultimate chance.
Full of refreshing coolness and with a lovely hint of banana without being overpowering, it reminds me of what is so good about a milk shake.
Over the summer months (along with my son Kyle) I will probably get through about 10 milk shakes. This is mainly down to the heat, but also down to the fact that I love them. Using an ice cream maker makes the process so much quicker.
In Portugal in the summer months the temperature can go as far as 45c and you will do absolutely anything to cool down. In fact in the summer we can easily go through 6 litres of water a day each and we will welcome a nice iced milk shake to help us feel normal again and to give us something other that water to have to drink!
Sofia is 18mths now and has hit that point when she knows what is good and what tastes good. And the word “chocolate” gets her attention more than any other. So when we were experimenting to write this recipe up for the blog she was there straight away claiming her share.
So if you want a nice summer cool down or your kids have a sleepover with your friends, then this will certainly impress them!The Ultimate Thick Homemade #Banana #Milkshake from @recipe_thisClick To Tweet
In your blender place all your ingredients into it apart from your ice cream and ice cubes. Then blend until it is lovely and smooth.
Add your ice cubes and your ice cream and blend again until the ice cubes have dissolved.
If it needs extra liquid and is too thick add some extra ice cubes or some more milk. If it is too runny add a little bit more ice cream.
With bananas it is important that you don’t put too many in as it can ruin the flavour and be too banana and not enough of other flavours.
