One morning I was feeling like I wanted make something awesome. You know what is an awesome breakfast beverage? Milkshakes!!! I’ve also included a bonus drink recipe for those interested in a cool milkshake spinoff:
So I made a sweet banana shake:
Here is the recipe:
Makes 5-6 servings.
- 3 bananas ( organic and nonorganic )
- 2 tsp of maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 cups milk
- Optional: 1-2 scoops of Vanilla Ice cream
Put all ingredients in the blender in this order: bananas, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract
With the cap on the blender, blend the ingredients on the puree setting for smooth or mix setting for chunky.
Pour into spare glass bottle for storage. It will brown, but flavor is enhanced if it sits for one day.
Next step get a large glass mug and add 2 scoops of your favorite Oreo and Vanilla Ice cream. For this example I used Cookies and Cream by HagenDaz. Then pour roughly 1/4 cup of milk over it. You can eyeball this measure. Mix together those ingredients until you have a milk and ice-cream Oreo piece mix.
Next grab your cold banana shake from the fridge and pour roughly 3/4 cup over the top. Mix that with a spoon and there you have it! An awesome Banana Milk Oreo Shake.
Add ice if you want it to be colder, or add Kahlua Liqueur, Cacao Liqueur and Amaretto to make a Cafe Allemand Drink. That recipe is below:
The Dirty Banana + Cafe Allemand:
A spin on two great drinks combined as one drink, the Dirty Banana drink I tried while I was visiting Jamaica and the Cafe Allemand is a bar standard mix of Amaretto, Coffee Liqueur and milk.
- 1 ounce Coffee Liqueur, (Kahlua or Sabroso is good)
- 1 ounce Creme de Cacao
- 3/4 ounce Amaretto
- 3 ounce banana shake, or milk if you a prefer regular Cafe Allemand
Shake with ice, serve strained in martini glass.
