Lighter Treat Recipe: Frozen Banana, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Milkshake Recipes from The Kitchn
You may have heard about one-ingredient ice cream, one of our all-time most popular recipes here at The Kitchn. It's a marvelous trick of a treat, made from frozen bananas that have been whipped furiously into a smooth, dreamy dessert. And yes, it tastes (and scoops) just like soft-serve ice cream. Well, the same science applies to milkshakes, and it led us to this: a thick, creamy, chip-studded shake that's lighter than our usual milkshake indulgences, being entirely ice cream-free (i.e. OK for breakfast). Milkshakes for breakfast! Of course, this is also a lovely dessert, healthier than a regular milkshake but still sweet and satisfying. I should note that this makes a pretty large milkshake. The frozen bananas give the shake its body, so while we think the other ingredients make a delicious combination, you can add whatever flavors you want. Tester's Notes This recipe has been a serious crowd-pleaser ever since Elizabeth posted it back in 2010. Want a gourmet upgrade?
