Banana Bread Milkshake!

Looks like Monday snuck up on us again, hope the weekend treated you well ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I am so glad to be back home from AZ. I do love my home state, but I don’t miss it in July especially when it rains. Oooeee it was hot and humid. Now I sit in Newport where it’s bordering chilly this morning! Ahhhhh, love it ๐Ÿ™‚

You guys might be tempted to think…..what on earth is the big deal about this milkshake?! I am here to tell you, just wait until you try it yourself! My boys are ice cream maniacs (like their father) and we seem to make milkshakes often. A month or so ago, the boys and I were throwing out ingredient ideas to add in our milkshakes and between the 3 of us, we came up with banana, brown sugar and cinnamon. Simple right? Talk about heaven in your milkshake glass! It literally tastes like banana bread.

Can’t wait for you guys to try this simple yet completely tasty milkshake! Break out the ol’ blender….Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s your line up ๐Ÿ™‚

Get yourself your favorite vanilla ice cream….or whatever is on sale at the time ๐Ÿ™‚

Add your ice cream, bananas, milk, brown sugar and cinnamon. Wait until you smell how good it smells!

Pour into an adorable milkshake glass and drink away!!

My boys aren’t used to me working on my blog during the summer yet…..they are usually in school when I work. Here they are totally heckling with my props! They got booted out right after I caught them in the act, lol!

I love you banana bread milkshake

I’ll leave you with my milkshake drinking stinkers. They were literally waiting 2 inches from me until I was done with the photo shoot!

    Will make this for my DH and two DD. They all love bananas. For myself, I think canned apple pie filling will do the trick for me, as I am not too crazy about bananas! Thanks for the idea!

    That sounds really good. I love banana bread so I imagine I will love this as well. If it tastes half as good as your boys’ faces say it does then we are all in for a treat. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    funny!!! I was just screaming yesterday…”When Will School Start”. My five year old loves to mess around when I am either cooking or trying to photograph!!! Gotta love little boys!!!

    Your milkshake is awesome!!! I am going to tweet about it later!!

    BTW: I use wrapping paper sheets too to photograph some things….I get the packs on sale and just tear off what I need. Great idea!!!

    Are you counting down to Blogher 10? Too bad I can’t go…but we will meet in person soon enough!!!

    Yum. I like my banana bread with nuts and cream cheese spread so I made a cream cheese whipped cream and sprinkled walnuts on top. Totally decadent.
