Celebrate the holidays (or any time of year) with this delicious banana milkshake! Whipped cream, Peeps and M&Ms on top make it extra festive.
I haven’t had a milkshake in SOOO long. But when the holidays come around, it’s a time to celebrate with food as far as I’m concerned – which is how this banana milkshake came about.
Well, that and my love of Peeps. Let me just be honest . . . I wanted to make something that I could put a Peep on top of. A delicious milkshake seemed like the thing!
This recipe is banana flavored to stir things up a bit. Have you heard of banana milk? I won’t bore you with the details, but it’s part of the new trend of alternative milks.
Ecowatch says it’s “high in potassium, vitamin B6 and pectin, banana milk is nutritious and full of filling fiber.”
Sounds good to me – and I can lie to people about my healthy banana beverage that I had for breakfast (I’ll forget to mention all the other ingredients). Winning.
- 1 1/2 C ice cream
- 1/3 C banana milk
- 1/2 C heavy whipping cream
- 2 T sugar
- M&Ms – Easter themed or other festive toppings
- Peeps – one per milkshake
Add your vanilla ice cream to the blender (and at the time of this writing, I’m thinking banana ice cream might work too – does it exist?).
Add the banana milk.
Blend at medium speed until completely mixed.
Pour into a tall glass and add the whipped cream to the top. You can get a recipe for whipped cream below – and you might even want one of those fancy dispensers for it.
Don’t forget the M&Ms! Break them up a little bit. The festive ones are best. And of course, add the Peep to the top – the whole point of this milkshake!
If you haven’t dipped a Peep into whipped cream and banana milkshake and eaten it, you haven’t truly lived.
