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

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.

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. That looks soooooooo delicious!

    Joy, for your next recipe, could you teach us how to make the one-year-old’s birthday cake featured on Teen Mom 2? I’m not sure I can go another week without it.

  2. That butter-burned banana is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I am inclined to skip the shake entirely and munch on golden, crisp slices of banana.

    Yes, I think that sounds rather splendid.

  7. Two servings? Really? I’m thinking more like one, particularly if it has chocolate and banana and malt. I am working from home today . . . I know what I”m having for lunch!
