Chocolate Banana Milkshake

Nothing bad in this chocolate banana milkshake. You’ll thank me when you make it.





Since bananas are big gout reliever (my husband deals with that mess), I bought almost 30 pounds of bananas last week. Wednesday, I went to the health food store and swung by Alberston's. To my knowledge they are the only store in our area that bags up the bananas that have started turning brown and reduces the price on them. Well, they were 39 cents a pound, so I bought 11 pounds of the bagged bananas. Then on Saturday, I bought about 17 pounds more.  Thankfully, we love bananas, banana bread and now Chocolate Banana Milkshakes. I have a freezer full of frozen bananas for the future.

After making a couple testers of the original recipe, we decided we liked them better without the ice and peanut butter.  The original recipes also calls for maple syrup and almond milk; we are true real milk fans and I used honey instead of the maple syrup.

~Chocolate Banana Milkshake~


2 frozen bananas
3/4 cup milk
1-2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Put everything in a blender, and blend away until smooth and creamy. Or you can do like me and use a tall container and a stick blender. :) Yeah, I used my stick blender with
 ice. :P  I personally added the whole 2 tablespoons of honey to each container. It tastes better to me.

I'm linking up with Tammy at Country Girl at Home today.

  4. That looks good! But sorry about the gout.
    When I had 3 teens at home. I used to buy lots of bargain bananas, we cut them I half, put them on a stick, dipped them in melted chocolate and froze them.

    Your advice about the bad visitors has proved true, no more visitors from them right now and I hope they stay away from all us. I would think my blog would bore them to tears, anyway, if they were looking for something x-like.
