Today’s Sunday! It’s the end of another weekend and I think we could all use some sugar to softened the blow. So welcome to my new series – Sugar-Coated Sundays. Every Sunday I’ll be sharing yummy sweets that I hope will make you smile. :) Today I’m going old school. I remember my dad making three things when I was was little: Fried Potato Pancakes, Velveeta Hamburger Macaroni, and Chocolate Banana Milkshakes. I love his Chocolate Banana Milkshakes. They are SO freakin’ good. Well, last week Thing 1 was running a really high fever and feeling pretty cruddy. So to brighten his day I decided to make him this shake.
I didn’t have any chocolate syrup in the house. I had been wanting to try the chocolate syrup recipe from Glorious Treats, so I did, problem solved. I dolled up my dad’s shake with some whipped cream, banana slices, and chocolate wafer cookies (undipped Thin Mint Knock Offs). And I had to tell you all, I got the job!! I’m really excited. I had interviewed for a few positions. I got the job I wanted too. So now when you call Verizon’s customer service, be nice. It might be me. Haha.
- 1/4 cup homemade chocolate syrup, plus more for garnish
- 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 ripe banana, sliced
- Whipped cream
- Blend together chocolate syrup, ice cream, milk and banana until smooth.
- Pour shake into glass, top with whipped cream. Garnish with chocolate syrup drizzle, banana slice and 1 chocolate wafer cookie.
Since I had some extra whipped cream and chocolate sauce, I thought I’d make a little cookie sandwich as well. It’s my Chocolate Banana Sandwich Cookie. Catchy name, huh?These little guys taste great, even if they are a bit messy. Now you can have your shake and eat it too. :)
