Banana Split Vodka Milkshake

If it’s Cocktail Friday then it must be time for a Banana Split Vodka Milkshake! Banana splits are nice, but they’re even sweeter when served in milkshake form with a splash of vodka!

I have a knack for taking perfectly healthy foods and turning them into not so healthy foods. Fine, I call it a talent. Not only do I know how to load things up with sugar and chocolate, but I also know how to cater them to Cocktail Friday when the time is right. Since I know you’re asking, NO IT WAS NOT ENOUGH TO TAKE BANANAS AND MAKE THEM INTO A MILKSHAKE. I had to add vodka, too. And I don’t regret a single second of it. If you’ve never had a vodka milkshake before, I highly encourage it.

My inspiration came from Chobani’s Banana Greek Yogurt. At first I wanted to make a smoothie and I figured I’d use frozen bananas to do so as you can essentially make “ice cream” with frozen bananas alone. But then I had some extra homemade marshmallow fluff in the fridge. And a homemade chocolate syrup recipe I had been wanting to try. And Cocktail Friday was on the way, so vodka was kind of necessary. And why not add a little strawberry ice cream and make it into a Banana Split Milkshake Cocktail? THIS is how my brain works. In case you’re wondering. Yogurt + Fruit –> Chocolatey Vodka Milkshake. I am not ashamed

So, obviously I used Chobani banana yogurt for this vodka milkshake, but you can use any kind of banana yogurt you can find. And if you can’t find one, just use plain Greek yogurt; you’ll still have plenty of banana flavor from the actual bananas you use.

To make the milkshake, put frozen bananas, Chobani, and strawberry ice cream in a blender. Blend until smooth. Then add vodka (!!) and marshmallow fluff and blend until well-combined.

I recommend homemade whipped cream for this, but you can obviously use store-bought if you’d prefer. Anything to get this to your mouth quicker, right?

Pour the banana split milkshake into two glasses and stir in a little bit of chocolate syrup into each. I tried this homemade chocolate syrup recipe I found and am in love. It makes me want to drink a glass of chocolate milk every single day, like a 5-year-old. Again, feel free to use store-bought chocolate syrup if you want this ready quicker!

And you have pretty much THE BEST Cocktail Friday ever.

 

And a super pretty one, too. Now I kind of feel like every Cocktail Friday should require sprinkles. And a vodka milkshake (or three).

Of course, you don’t need to add vodka to this banana split milkshake. It’s not like it’s a total requirement or anything.

But it’s Friday, so I think it’s totally allowed. Then again, it also might help make your Monday a little bit brighter!

I hope you have a glorious, sprinkle-filled Friday!

This afternoon, I’m heading to Buffalo, New York, to attend the funeral of my dear Uncle Hal. If you read this blog,  you know how important my family is to me and how close we are. Hal (AKA Handsome Hal) was a very special part of my life and the kind of guy that was always an absolute joy to be around. Sorry to end this post on a sad note, but I can say that I’m looking forward to being with my family, including many of my relatives, and celebrating Handsome Hal’s fabulous life 🙂

Be sure to hug your loved ones today… and maybe even share a cocktail or vodka milkshake with them <3
