Thick Banana Shakes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.


4 servings

I love bananas and these shakes are the best. Though we're stationed overseas, I've fed my two young kids these made-in-moments drinks since they were babies. Pop them into the freezer for a few minutes if you like them thicker. Or try different flavors using chocolate or strawberry ice cream. -Martha Miller, Camp Zama, Japan

  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 medium banana, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon banana extract


  1. In a blender, combine all ingredients; cover and process until smooth. Pour into chilled glasses; serve immediately.
