Banana Caramel Milkshake Recipe

My Daughter Make Me A Milkshake – Yeah!

When I arrived home this morning after a visit with Meg to the Farmer’s Market, I was greeted with a banana caramel milkshake my 14 year old daughter prepared for me. She was thumbing through a teen magazine, saw this inviting concoction and decided she had to make one for us.

A little rich for breakfast, but what the heck it was the start of a three day holiday weekend!   So thank you Nell, and here’s to a fun and safe Memorial Day Weekend everyone.

Banana Caramel Milkshake

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 2


4 tablespoons caramel sauce plus extra to drizzle

2 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced

2 cups milk

4 scoops vanilla ice cream

2 dried banana chips (We didn't have any but the they are more for show)

How To Prepare At Home

This recipe calls for chilled glasses so before you start, make sure you stick two tall glasses into the freezer for a few minutes while getting the other ingredients together and pulling your blender out of the cabinet.

Add 1 tablespoon of caramel sauce into each chilled glass and swirl around until the bottom half of the glass is coated.

Add the bananas to the blender with the milk, the other two tablespoons of caramel sauce, two scoops of ice cream and blend until smooth but nice and thick.

Fill each glass with the milkshake and top with a second scoop of ice cream. I said this was rich. If you have dried banana chips, use them to decorate the top of the shake along with a drizzle of caramel sauce.

Best served with a spoon and straw.

Happy Memorial Day!
