Chocolate Banana Shakes

There is this awesome burger/ice cream joint here. Someone told Derek to try their chocolate banana shake so he did and loved it. Then I tried it and loved it. So tonight, I tried to duplicate it. Very yummy. I'm not sure if it was exactly the same, but it was pretty close.

For two generous servings:

4 scoops of vanilla ice cream
2 bananas
chocolate syrup (enough to give shake "chocolate milk" color)
milk (more or less depending on how thick you like your shakes)

Put in blender, magic bullet, or smoothie maker.

I served with a dollop of whipped cream.


  1. This sounds great. I will for sure give it a try. What about malted milk? I like to add that to my creations to give an authentic malt taste. Is that the difference between a shake and a malt?

  2. That is the difference between a malt and a shake. I LOVE malted milk powder, but haven't tried it with this particular shake. My favorite malt (besides Charcoal Inn Chocolate) is a hot caramel malt.
