Last year, I wrote about how I turned frozen bananas and dark chocolate peanut butter into a wonder ice cream. I’ve made it quite a few times since then. Anytime our bananas were looking too ripe, I’d peel them, break them into chunks, and toss them into the freezer. Recently, I realized I had a problem. We had too many bags of bananas in the freezer and not enough space to store a batch of ice cream. What to do?
I thought over the problem and wondered if I could make it into a smoothie instead. Only when I was done, I didn’t have a smoothie. I had a milkshake. What a wonderful surprise!
First, gather your ingredients. You’ll need frozen bananas, milk, and dark chocolate peanut butter. (I prefer Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter.)
Get your blender and toss in your bananas, milk, and dark chocolate peanut butter.
I put in one heaping spoonful of peanut butter for every 2 bananas, but didn’t measure the milk out. Use your judgment.
When the ingredients are in, close the lid and puree them until smooth.
Now just pour into a glass…
… and drink …
… until it is all gone.
This is so quick and easy that I think the kids will be begging for it often. I might mix this up and use regular peanut butter and add some strawberries (also sitting in the freezer) for a non-chocolaty version.
