Peanut Butter Banana Milkshake -- DIY
We couldn't leave our readers drooling right away, so we thought we'd kick this blog off with our first ice cream DIY. Technically, this is a milkshake, but in my mind, milkshakes are in the ice cream family. No need to discriminate.
You can make this with just the ingredients in your kitchen right now. Recipe makes 2 servings.
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 spoonfuls of peanut butter (adjust as you wish - I like 2 heaping spoonfuls)
- 1 cup of milk (I use skim)
- 10 ice cubes
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- dash of salt
- dash of cinnamon
Cut the banana into pieces and put all of the ingredients into a food processor. Blend until smooth.
Aside from bananas and peanut butter being natural pals, the salt in this gives just the right balance to the sweetness. Bonus: this milkshake is probably healthy.
Recipe adapted from here, where they've gone for a non-dairy approach.
