Classic Banana Milkshake

Someday Spoon is now on facebook so I thought Id celebrate with a banana smoothie. If you enjoy Someday Spoon click the like button and follow us on FB too.
Smoothie and Milkshake recipes is the 3rd site that we have been asked to work on after our original contract from the oDesk freelancing site. Unfortunately there is a chance that the smoothie recipes we are working on may never be published and no one will ever get to see them! However the good news is I will publish them all here just for you.

Banana milkshake recipe

With the banana Milkshake photo shoot we really wanted to push the retro / childhood memories of the classic banana milkshake. Not only in the shoot itself but also with the colors and tone of the final series and the square frame emulating a medium format camera.
Although bananas are often only used as a base in milkshakes and smoothies they do have a great flavor and make for a great smoothie on their own.

Banana Milkshake Tips

  • This is a great way to use up those frozen bananas you have in the freezer waiting to be made into a cake.
  • Adding a bit more milk and a few extra drops of vanilla essence will fatten this shake out into 4 cups.
