Kimm’s “I Make the Milkshakes!” Banana Milkshake

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Last night we decided to splurge and have a milkshake.   We had some bananas that were getting to the mushy stage and Kimm makes some awesome banana milkshakes.  I tried to help, but she said, “I make the milkshakes!”  Somehow that phrase induced MUCH laughter during the entire milkshake-making process.  So instead of helping, I documented the process.  Seriously, these milkshakes are so good.  And there are only THREE ingredients.

Kimm’s “I Make the Milkshakes” Banana Milkshake

(Serves TWO–large servings, or FOUR–small servings)

Ingredients:

Two mushy bananas (for extra banana flavor)

Approximately 6 scoops vanilla ice cream (about half of a 1/2 gallon container–I know it’s a lot, but this is an indulgent treat!)

Approximately 1/2 cup whole milk (to taste really, depending on how thin or thick you like your milkshakes–ours was pretty thin, but perfect for us)

To make:

Place the ice cream in a blender.  Add the banana and milk.  Blend together.  Pour out.  ENJOY!

Here’s how Kimm makes a milkshake…

Wipe eyes of tears when you are laughing too much…due to saying “I make the milkshakes!” MANY times while actually making the milkshakes!

I LOVE these milkshakes.  And the best part is, I don’t have to make them…I can just enjoy them 🙂
