My Milkshake Bring All Thee..

All a girl needs is...
 Chocolate, peanut butter, bananas and best of all crispy smokey bacon!!

Elvis had good taste when it came to a grilled sandwich, not so good in the fashion department but we will forgive him for that one. 
I have to say the grilled sandwich version of this is amaze balls especially when made with thick sliced brioche. 
Having decided that i fancied a thick creamy milkshake to then realise we never had the ingredients, i had to get creative and this was born. 
Unfortunately i never had any of my vanilla bean ice cream but bananas are a great substituted  to replace ice cream. 

If you happen to have ice cream to hand, replace 2 of the bananas with ice cream.

I don't have any pictures of this glorious masterpiece, but the next time i make it will add in a picture. 

It would make a great accompaniment to a weekend brunch or served as a desert or just as a wee cheeky treat to yourself.

All you need is.. 

Serves 2:


  • 4 bananas, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of good quality Peanut Butter
  • 6-8 heaped teaspoons of Hot Chocolate Powder
  • 1 cups of Milk or Almond Milk
  • 80 grams of Milk Chocolate, melted 
  • 1-2 rashers of candied crispy Smokey Bacon, chopped
  • Salted Peanuts, chopped. 
  • Honey


Add the bananas, peanut butter, hot chocolate, milk and melted chocolate into a blender. Blitz until smooth if the milkshake is too thick add in some milk and blitz until you have reached your desired consistency. 
Pour your milkshake into glasses of your choice sprinkle with the bacon & peanuts before drizzling with honey.
