Banana pudding is one of those weird things I love despite not really liking the main ingredient: bananas. I don’t care much for bananas or banana flavored candy. Banana pudding or banana bread, though? Sign me up, yesterday. Do you have any foods like that? The kind that turn you in to some sort of riddle wrapped in a mystery inside a paradox? No? Just me…okay, well carry on then.
At any rate, I love banana pudding. It’s one of my comfort food faves. I wanted to see what the milkshake version of this would look like, so I played with a couple different recipes and finally came down to this one, a banana pudding milkshake. It includes all the usual ingredients, boosted with a couple of extras to send it over the top. Because, what would a milkshake here be if not over the top?
BANANA PUDDING MILKSHAKE
You will need:
- 1 1/2 cups of Vanilla Ice Cream
- 3 tablespoons Vanilla Pudding Mix
- 1/2 cup of Milk
- 15 Vanilla Wafer Cookies
- 1 banana
- Vanilla Frosting
- Caramel (for drizzle)
Pull out your milkshake mixer cup. Scoop your vanilla ice cream in, add the vanilla pudding mix, crumble a few wafers and a couple of pieces of banana. Pour your milk on top and use your immersion mixer to mix it all up. You should have a semi-thick shake. Pour about 1/3 of the milkshake on top of the layer of wafers and bananas you’ve already created. Add another layer of wafers, and another layer of bananas. Pour another 1/3 of your milkshake on top. Repeat this until you’ve filled up your glass and top with one final layer of wafers and bananas. It should look a little something like this:
Then you can add some caramel drizzle to the top for that little bit of something extra.
Plus, it just looks delicious. Now, go get a spoon!
Or maybe a few spoons and share?
