Chocolate Banana Cake Batter Milkshake

Yay for day 4 of #icecreamweek! Did you get a glimpse of that title? You can’t go wrong with this Chocolate Banana Cake Batter Milkshake. Serve it up in a tall glass topped with whipped cream.

Everybody loves cake batter. I know I do. I love to lick it off the whisk, the wooden spoon, the spatula, straight out of the bowl. Have you ever stuck your face directly in the bowl and licked the sides of the bowl to get every last bit of batter. No. That’s just me. How embarrassing! Let’s pretend I didn’t divulge that little tidbit of information.

This Chocolate Banana Cake Batter Milkshake is AMAZING! It’s thick and creamy and tastes just like you’re eating devil’s food cake batter right off the beaters, minus the raw eggs of course. And, it has a banana in it, which means it’s semi healthy. Don’t crush my dreams, now. It’s semi healthy, and I’m stickin’ to it. I can’t bear to buy a bigger pair of expandable pants.

Here’s a little bit about me and bananas. I don’t like bananas when they get all spotty and brown. I will not eat them when they look like bananas in the photo above. Blehk! They’re too mushy for me, and I can no longer tolerate the texture when they become over ripe. I’m making my “I hate brown bananas” face as I type this- lips puckered, forehead scrunched, brows narrowed. It’s not a good look. Instead of wasting them, I use them in things like cookies, bread, pudding, and these milkshakes.

I used a 1/2 cup of devil’s food cake batter in these shakes. The chocolate cake batter enhances the chocolate flavor, taking it to a new level of chocolatey goodness. It all creates a nice, thick shake. The kind where you’re cheeks pucker in because you’re sucking on the straw so hard to get a taste of the goodness within.

Chocolate + banana + cake batter= The best shake EVER!

What have we learned from this post? Don’t waste bananas… Make milkshakes!

This shake is best enjoyed on a warm sunny day. Enjoy!
