Best Banana Milkshake Recipe

I’m recovering from a little too much fun over the weekend by enjoying this Vegan Banana Shake. It’s as if I have an insatiable need for continuous pleasure that begins with vegan brownies on Friday night, vegan chocolate cake on Saturday, vegan snickerdoodles on Sundays and is now edging its way into my weekday routine.

I have the biggest sweet tooth this side of the Mississippi. If you don’t believe me, ask my mom. I’ve had this relationship with sweets my whole life and I’m certain it isn’t going anywhere now.

At least this banana milkshake recipe is on the lighter side! It satisfies my sweet tooth, but it’s not too heavy. And these days it’s easy to find low calorie ice cream to add in the mix!

Use expert tips to make your banana milk shake delicious every time:

  • You can freeze the bananas ahead of time to make an even creamier shake
  • Feel free to substitute the vegan ice cream for 1 cup of ice to make this more like a banana smoothie
  • If you don’t have peanut butter powder on hand, feel free to add a tablespoon of real peanut butter — it’s delicious!

  • I find a high-speed blender works best.
