How do you make a Banana Milkshake without ice cream?
You guys. No. Just. No. I mean, yes, you can technically combine milk, sugar, and ice instead of ice cream, but the consistency will be different. And if you are really concerned about your ingredients, choose Breyer's vanilla ice cream because that is made primarily of cream and sugar without added corn syrup and mystery ingredients. So you will basically get the same end ingredients, but a better taste and consistency.
How do you make a simple banana milkshake?
It's easy! You will simply combine bananas, vanilla ice cream, milk and vanilla extract in a blender and blend until smooth! Yes, it really is THAT easy!
What do I use to make a banana shake?
There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies and milkshakes, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best. I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my smoothies! You can buy your own Vitamix 780 HERE.
