Add all of the ingredients to a blender or Nutribullet.
Blend for 30 seconds or until the ingredients are fully incoporated.
Pour into serving glasses.
Top with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.
Bananas: Use ripe bananas and if you have time you can freeze them for 20-30 minutes. Frozen bananas make the shake more creamy without having to add ice cream.
Milk: Use full-fat milk for the best results. However, you can use other milk of your choice.
Sugar: Depending on the sweetness of the bananas you can skip adding sugar or replace it without your choice of honey or sweetener.
Vanilla extract: It adds a lovely flavor but can be entirely skipped if you don't have it on hand.
How to Make without Blender:
Use a food processor or chopper, and follow the recipe as written.
Mash the bananas really well, until smooth and no big chunks remain. Add all ingredients to a mason jar, put on the lid tightly, and shake well until all ingredients are incorporated. Note: This method will not yield the same results as using a blender or food processor would, but it will still be pretty good!
How to Store:This shake is best consumed immediately, however you can store it in the fridge for a few hours. Flavor Variations & Add-Ins
Chocolate: Love chocolate? Add 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder to the recipe, and make it into a chocolate banana milkshake!
Strawberry: Add 1/2 cup of sliced strawberries to add a delicious flavor! You can use other berries too such as blueberries.
Mango: Add 1/2 cup of cubed mango to the rest of the ingredients, blend, and enjoy this fruity milkshake.
Dates: Dates are a great way to add some nutrition and natural sweetness to the milkshake. Just make sure to use pitted dates that have been roughly chopped up - about 2-3 should be good for this recipe.
Coffee: Need some energy? Add instant coffee, cold-brewed coffee, espresso powder or even freshly brewed coffee that's been cooled down.
Cinnamon powder: Add a little sprinkle of cinnamon powder to the milkshake to bring a lovely warmth to the overall flavor.
Peanut Butter / Other Nut Butters: A teaspoon of nut butter of your choice will make this milkshake feel indulgent and delicious!
Ice cream: Use vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry ice cream for best results. Skip the sugar, and add 2 scoops of your choice of ice cream.
Chocolate Syrup: Drizzle with some chocolate syrup, or even maple or caramel syrup would be excellent here.
Nuts: Top with crushed walnuts, almonds, or even cashew nuts!
Whipped cream: It's not necessaryary, but I love to add whipped cream to milkshakes.
Chocolate sprinkles: If making for kids, or even yourself, make it more fun by adding some sprinkles...my favorite is chocolate sprinkles but rainbow would be perfect for the kids!
