AK is currently undergoing some painful dental treatment and he has to visit the dentist every second or third day. As a result, he needs to eat “soft food”. Since he thinks all traditional “soft food” qualifies as hospital food, his go-to is milkshakes. That boy can seriously live on milkshakes. If only they invented a chicken one soon. On second thought, that might be gross.
Anyhow, I had baked The Best Brownies E.V.E.R. on Friday and there were some leftovers. Personally, I would rather have the brownies by themselves, but AK got a kick out of making a milkshake with BROWNIES at HOME.
Actually, he couldn’t get over it.
So here’s what we used for 1 serving of 500 ml:
2 medium sized bananas
2 squares chocolate brownies (obviously you can add as many or as little as you like)
2 cubes ice
(Some ice-cream would have been fantastic but we had run out)
Chocolate Malt Powder (Horlicks) to sprinkle on top
We didn’t add any sugar because the bananas+brownies were sweet enough but feel free to add some.
Here’s how we made it:
Here are the bananas, hanging out on the brownie box…
And the milk.
I peeled the bananas and roughly broke them before adding them to the hand-blender jar (you can very easily do this in a traditional blender too).
Next, I roughly broke up the brownies and added them to the jar too…
Adding a dash of the milk (to aid easy blending), I lowered the blender into the jar and whizzed it all until it became pulpy… If you want to add sugar, this is stage to do it.
I crushed the ice cubes slightly using my mortar pestle and added them to the shake – because the blender manual says that large chunks of solid ice can break the blades. I didn’t want to find out if it was really true.
Pouring in the rest of the milk (until the whole mix hit the 500 ml mark on the blender jar), I whizzed until the shake was airy and frothy, moving the blender up-and-down to incorporate more air.
Poured the shake into the glass…
Sprinkled some of the malted chocolate powder on top and Voila!
Delicious, home-made (from scratch) Banana-Brownie-Milkshake!
