Dad’s Best Ever Chocolate Banana Milkshake

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


  1. Blend together chocolate syrup, ice cream, milk and banana until smooth.
  2. 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.  🙂

    I hate it when the littles are sick I feel so helpless. I bet he loved this milkshake though. If you're not careful he'll pretend to be sick just to get the milkshake. Lol. Thanks for sharing at Whimsy Wednesday over at The Ny Melrose Family.
