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. I have a freezer full of frozen bananas for the future. Thankfully, we love bananas, banana bread and now Chocolate Banana Milkshakes.
After making a couple testers of this recipe, we decided we liked them better without the ice and peanut butter. The original recipe also called 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.
I personally added the whole 2 tablespoons of honey to each container, it was the perfect sweetness.
