Being lactose-free, if there’s one thing I miss it’s a proper milkshake, so a few years ago I decided to make my own thick banana milkshake at home. Having found Swedish Glace (Dairy Free) Heavenly Chocolate ice cream, this has now merged into a delicious homemade thick chocolate and banana milkshake.
This milkshake can be made as a normal dairy milkshake or as a dairy-free milkshake. Simply use the ice cream and milk of your choice.
To make my homemade chocolate and banana milkshake, you will need:
2-3 scoops of ice cream (I used Swedish Glace Heavenly Chocolate)
Milk (I used rice milk)
Put the two bananas in the food processor with a dash of milk and give it a whizz around until you get a puree-like consistency. This will only take seconds, but you might need to push some escaped pieces of banana back down into the puree and give it another whizz.
Add the scoops of ice cream before giving it another whizz around. Then add the milk (I tend to add a small glass full, but this really depends on how thick you want your milkshake) and a final quick whizz.
If you want the milkshake a bit thicker, simply add some more ice cream at the end.
This milkshake really is delicious (even if I say so myself!). You can really taste the banana and chocolate in it.
Now, I’d love to find a dairy-free strawberry ice cream to make a homemade banana & strawberry milkshake.
