I like you, and I think about you often.  Like… everyday.

I think about what kind of cookies you might like.  I think about what kind of soup you’ll want to make.  I think about vegan things for you.   I try to figure out gluten-free things… and I think about how you might like to make buttermilk pancakes for your kids this weekend.

Yesterday though… yesterday I thought only of myself.  I thought of me, and how much I could not live another second without a chocolate milkshake in my face.  I over-scooped a hearty portion of ice cream, I busted out my malt powder, and I fried up a banana with just a touch of butter.  See where I’m going with this?

Then… I counted the seconds until I could drink the milkshake.  Hurry hurry hurry.  These pictures were taken in haste.  That’s no lie.

Two seconds…

I’m so freaking impatient.

You know what a chocolate milkshake looks like, don’t you.  All of this is really just a formality.

one.

Aaaaand drink.  Watch your toes.  This cat is a monster.

What does a Burnt Banana Chocolate Malt taste like?  Um… banana, chocolate, and whoppers, and heaven, and delicious.

You can, of course, skip the malt, use vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup, use unburnt bananas, add bourbon, or use vanilla frozen yogurt instead of chocolate ice cream…. You can do anything you want.  Don’t add spinach; that would probably ruin everything.

Burnt Banana Chocolate Malted Milkshake

Makes: 2 milkshakes

Print this Recipe!

1 1/2 cups chocolate ice cream (I used 4 large scoops of ice cream)

3/4 cup milk (any fat content)

1 banana

2 tablespoons malt powder

Melt butter in a small saute pan over medium heat.  Peel banana and spice into small circles, or into two long banana halves.  Cook the bananas until browned and almost brunt, flip and cook on both sides.  Remove the bananas from the pan and let cool before blending into the milkshake.
When the bananas have cooled, place in a blender with the chocolate ice cream, milk, and malt powder.  Blend on high until smooth.  Pour into two large glasses and enjoy immediately.

  1. Well, you might think you were only thinking of yourself. But I know you were thinking of me, a new-reader-you’ve-probably-never-even-seen-before. This blog is fabulous! Fried bananas are one of my favorite desserts. So I can’t wait to try them in a milkshake.

    Also, I like meringue cookies and chocolate chip ones that stay chewy and not crispy.
    And potato & leek soup.
    Thanks for thinking of me. ;)

  2. Love love LOVE this post!!! I’ll make one of these right this afternoon! Can’t wait…
    Love your blog by the way!! Greetings from Switzerland!

  3. Ohh nooo I just brushed my teeth before bed….I am now seriously craving this milkshake!! I have no ice cream but a banana and chunk of chocolate will have to do until I can get to the store. You are brilliant Joy!

  4. Chocolate and banana are a match made in heaven, me likes. (Funny, I have exactly the same little metal (silver?) vase as the one you have on the table. And I live in Finland. Got it from my mother-in-law who actually has lived in the US so maybe she got it from there.)

  5. Fact: whenever I order a milk shake, it’s always banana. Screw that, I’m making my own! As in, this. I still need to experience malt outside of Whoppers.

    p.s. I like your shoes, glasses, and heart your monster cat.
