Banana Peanut Butter Milkshake

This milkshake is heavenly, healthy, and filling all on its own. A great choice on those mornings you are in a hurry or any time of the day. 

My mock milkshake (my variation)

This milkshake is a delectable treat! It’s creamy, rich, and sweet. My variation doesn’t require ice cream, making it a healthy, delicious, and filling treat for both kids and adults alike. It also makes excellent popsicles! Just put any leftover in the popsicle mold and freeze!

My delicious version of a milkshake delivers the sweet, thick, and creamy but still loose enough to make it up the straw. qualities you want from a milkshake. If it were too thick then I’d rather be eating ice cream. I also tweaked a few ingredients to make it a healthier choice. 

This milkshake will become an instant hit for kids and adults alike. You will have the kids slurping the bottom of the cup with their straws and asking for more.

The Ingredients needed for making Banana Peanut Butter Milkshake

  • Bananas – Instead of using ice cream; I use bananas. When frozen then blitzed up, bananas produce a beautiful, smooth, and creamy puree that is perfect for adding to milkshakes. It brings the cold and unctuous quality of ice cream! 

Tip: frozen, blitzed bananas can convince most people into thinking it is actually ice cream. Try serving some on my delectable flourless chocolate cake, still warm from the oven, for a wonderful treat on a hot summer day.

  • Peanut butter: We love the addition of peanut butter in this milkshake. It helps thicken it, even more, tastes divine, and has a ton of health benefits. It is rich in heart-friendly good fats and protein to keep you fuller for longer. Be sure to use smooth instead of crunchy peanut butter for the most inviting texture. 
  • Honey: This milkshake is sweetened naturally with honey instead of sugar or syrups. 
  • Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is low in fat, sugar-free, and twice as high in protein as regular yogurts. It brings a velvety texture and slight sour background flavor to the milkshake, which means every mouthful is fresh and exciting.

What is a milkshake? 

Milkshakes are cold, sweet, milk-based drinks. Traditionally they are made by blending milk and ice cream with flavorings such as fruit, syrups, or chocolate. They can be served as a fast, filling breakfast, alongside any meal, and as a delicious treat by themselves. They’re very popular all over the world, but especially here in the U.S. where they feature prominently on fast food and restaurant menus. 

What kind of milk should I use? 

I use regular cows milk, but you can use any kind of milk that meets your dietary requirements and flavour preferences. This milkshake would be great made with almond, oat or coconut milk. 

What can I serve with the milkshake? 

A well-made milkshake can go with almost anything. My top picks for milkshake mating are:

  1. The classic burger with a nice soft bun.
  2. Fries – Since salty pairs well with sweet
  3. Peanut cookies – You can’t have too much peanut flavor
  4. Flourless Chocolate cake
  5. Another milkshake because why just have one?

Fun milkshake facts! 

  • Contrary to common belief, the name “milkshake” is derived not from the act of shaking up the ingredients but from a time when they were served in bars. If a customer enjoyed their drink, they would shake the bartender’s hand and give a tip. 

Notes

  1. This recipe calls for peanut butter. Be sure to use good quality peanut butter that is smooth instead of crunchy for the most inviting texture.
  2. The riper the bananas you use, the sweeter the milkshake will be.
