Brown Sugar Banana Milkshake Recipe. Shake em up a bit with this caramelized bananas and brown sugar. Easy to make and big on flavor. Your kids, big and small will go crazy over this.
It’s been almost two months since I told you that 2017 would be my year for desserts. Chocolate Ricotta Custard made it’s debut in January – check. It received good reviews from all who consumed.
I don’t know exactly why it happened, but for weeks I’ve been craving a milkshake, like crazy. An indulgent treat. Ice cream is my favorite dessert and milkshakes are everything ice cream ever wanted to be. And more.
It’s been at least two decades that I deliberately walked into an ice cream shop to order a milkshake. I was once obsessed with Dolly Madison Banana Milkshakes. At least twice a week I found myself at their counter. But then the unthinkable happened, I scream, you scream, we all screamed when the Dolly Madison closed their stores. My banana milkshake connection – gone!
Armed with the eyeopening revelation to make my own banana milkshake at home, I was hesitant. You know what I mean, when you love something so much you don’t want to risk the disappointment of making an inferior version?
So I decided to create this Brown Sugar Banana version.
Bananas and brown sugar cooked in a saucepan stove top, blended with vanilla ice cream and a splash of milk, topped with whipped cream and cinnamon. Oh-for-heaven-sake Piper! (We’ve just started power watching Orange is the New Black and that’s my new favorite outcry).
