Banana Milkshake That Everyone Will Love

We have tried so many different milkshakes so we consider ourselves milkshake pros. Even after having so many amazing milkshakes, this banana milkshake still hits the spot every time. It is creamy, sweet, a little fruity and totally rich. It is a milkshake that everyone will love.

How to Make a Milkshake

Making a milkshake is extremely easy. They may be one of the easiest desserts to make. Essentially, all you need to do is blend the ingredients together until they are super smooth. Then you can pour the milkshake and enjoy!

While it may be super simple to make a milkshake, we do have a few pro tops to help you make the best milkshake possible. Take a look at our milkshake tricks.

  1. Use a good blender– A high powered blender is key to making a smooth milkshake. If your blender isn’t strong, it will not puree the milkshake well. This means there may be chunks or pieces in your milkshake. Invest in a strong blender that is able to crush frozen ingredients. Check out our blender guide here to find the perfect blender for your home.
  2. Let it blend– Don’t be afraid to let your milkshake blend for at least a minute. While it may look pureed right away, a little extra blending time will make the banana milkshake smooth and fluffy. Whipping all that air into the milkshake is key to it’s perfect texture!
  3. Don’t use ice– Many milkshake recipes call for ice but ice melts and then waters down the shake. Skip the ice! Using frozen bananas and ice cream will make our banana shake cold and thick enough.
  4. Freeze the fruit– Any fruit in a milkshake recipe should be frozen. This will give your milkshake a thick texture.

If you have any tips or pointers on how to make a milkshake, let us know! We are always looking for good secret tricks to make our drinks better!

Milkshake Maker vs. Blender

If you really love milkshakes, you may want to invest in a milkshake maker or milkshake machine. Milkshake makers are usually made of stainless steel. They have a long mixing wand that whips the ingredients of a milkshake together.

Milkshake makers will not crush ice or puree frozen fruit. However, they do blend milk, ice creams, powders and liquids together really well.

The main benefit of a milkshake maker is that it is very safe to use. There are no sharp blades and usually work at the push of a button. Kids can easily learn to use a milkshake machine safely, enabling them to make their own dessert treats!

Milkshake makers keep milkshakes cold. The stainless steel cup insulates the ingredients while they blend. Blenders can get hot as they run and the heat from the motor can melt a milkshake. You won’t have this problem with a milkshake machine!

Here are a few of the best milkshake makers on the market. If you are interested in making a lot of delicious, perfectly blended milkshakes, then take a look at these awesome milkshake machines that are sure to get the job done!

Malt vs Milkshake

Have you ever seen a malted milkshake on a menu? What is malt in milkshake? Well, it is a tasty ingredient that makes milkshakes super delicious.

Malted milk powder is barley malt powder with dry milk powder mixed in. Malted milk powder adds a creamy and milky taste to milkshakes. It makes the drink taste sweeter and gives a vanilla essence to any shake.

Add a scoop of malted milk powder to your milkshake to give it even more flavor.

Use chocolate malt powder or vanilla malt. Both will work well in a milkshake. A malted banana milkshake sounds pretty amazing…

Ingredients in a Banana Milkshake Recipe

Our banana milkshake is super easy to make. Here are the ingredients you will need to make a tasty banana shake.

  • Frozen bananas– Frozen bananas add a creamy texture and great banana flavor to the milkshake. Freeze overripe bananas which have the most flavor. Keep a bag in your freezer so you are ready to make banana milkshakes anytime!
  • Vanilla bean ice cream– Vanilla bean ice cream has tons of vanilla flavor. The small black vanilla bean specks are also very pretty when blended into the shake.
  • Whole Milk- Whole milk is creamy and rich but also not too thick. It will help thin the milkshake slightly, making it a great texture.
  • Vanilla Extract– A little extra vanilla enhances the flavor of the milkshake.
  • Ground Cinnamon– Ground cinnamon goes well with the taste of bananas. Using cinnamon is optional and your banana milkshake recipe will be delicious without it. However, it adds a new level of flavor that will make your shake extra special.
  • Whipped Cream– Topping any milkshake recipe with whipped cream is necessary. It is the perfect finishing touch to any milkshake and will make the shake picture perfect.

Once you have everything you need to make this tasty banana milkshake, put it all in a blender and puree until smooth! Since this banana milkshake recipe has frozen bananas, it will not work in a milkshake maker. You will need a good, powerful blender for this recipe!

Love Mocktail – Mocktail.net

Looking for love? Look no further! Our love mocktail will give you all the love you need. It is fruity and sweet, tangy and flavorful. The love cocktail is just as complex and amazing as real, true love. However, unlike real love, our love mocktail is very easy to create. Let us tell you all about it!

Ingredients for a Love Mocktail

You don’t need much to make a love mocktail. In fact, you can create this delicious non alcoholic drink with just four main ingredients. Here is what you will need and a little bit about each ingredient:

  • Cranberry Juice– The cranberry juice you find in the grocery store is usually a cranberry cocktail. This is totally fine! In fact, it is often a little sweeter than pure cranberry juice. Pure cranberry juice or cranberry juice cocktail will work in this mocktail recipe.
  • Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice– We like ruby ​​red grapefruit juice due to it’s pretty color. Ruby red juice is a brighter, pinker color than regular grapefruit juice. It is more the color of love!
  • Monin Raspberry Syrup– Any kind of raspberry simple syrup will work. We like the Monin raspberry syrup because it has a very strong, natural taste. It is also a pretty pink color which matches our love theme!
  • Lime Juice– Fresh lime juice adds a lot of bright, tangy flavor to the drink.

We like to rim the martini glass in sugar, giving the drink a little extra sweetness with every sip. Let us tell you all about how to make a perfectly rimmed glass.

How to Rim a Cocktail Glass with Sugar

Adding a sugared rim to a cocktail glass is very easy. Once you learn how to add a sugared rim to a glass, you may start sugaring all your drinks! Here is what you need to do:

  1. Pour a little sugar on a plate or shallow dish. You want the sugar to be about ⅛ of an inch deep. Deeper sugar will go up the rim of the glass more, giving you better sugar coverage.
  2. Rub a lime or lemon wedge around the rim of the glass. This will wet the rim so that the sugar will stick to it.
  3. Flip the glass upside down and dip the wet glass rim into the sugar. The sugar should stick right to the glass!
  4. Pour your mocktail or cocktail mix into the sugar rimmed glass, being sure not to pour the drink over the rim and ruin the pretty sugar rim.
  5. Enjoy!

If you want to make a salt rimmed glass, you can follow the exact same steps, just use salt instead! Larger flaked salt like Kosher salt or sea salt work best. Coarse sanding sugar works best for making sugar rimmed glasses. Look for flavored sugars or colored sugar for an even more fun drink! A pretty pink sugared rim on this love mocktail fantastic sounds!

Fresh Juice for Drinks

If you are feeling extra ambitious, you can add a little bit more love to this mocktail by making your own juice. You can make fresh cranberry juice or freshly squeezed red grapefruit juice. Here is a quick look at how to make the fresh juices you need to create this tasty drink.

Make Homemade Grapefruit Juice– Buy a large grapefruit that is a little soft when you squeeze it. You want the grapefruit to give a little under your fingers which indicates that it is nice and juicy inside.

Slice the grapefruit in half horizontally and then squeeze the grapefruit over a fine mesh sieve and bowl. The sieve will strain out any seeds and pulp while the bowl catches the tasty juice. Chill the freshly squeezed grapefruit juice until you are ready to use it!

Make Homemade Cranberry Juice- Add one pound of cranberries and four cups of water to a bowl. Bring the water to a boil. Boil the berries until they burst. The skins should crack and the berry will look like it exploded.

Pour the hot cranberry juice through a fine mesh sieve. Discard the berries and keep the juice! Let it chill in the fridge until you are ready to use it to make our love mocktail.

Making homemade juice can be a tasty way to make this drink even better. The fresh flavors will definitely be noticeable. Keep in mind that fresh juice only lasts about 3-4 days in the fridge. That means you will need to drink up!

Our love mocktail is perfect for Valentine’s Day, date night or just to sip and enjoy with friends. Spread the love with this amazing, flavorful, non alcoholic drink. It is sure to win the hearts of anyone who tries it! Enjoy!
