Banana Pudding Milkshake

Banana Pudding Shake with Blue Belle
Today I have an amazingly simple treat for you!  Growing up, I absolutely LOVED banana pudding in the summer time! Last year I tried Chick-Fil-A’s Banana Pudding Milkshake and was absolutely in love, but of course, they only had it for a limited time.  So this spring I found myself basking in the glory of Zaxby’s Banana Pudding Milkshake, which is just as equally delicious!  I now hear that it will be a permanent menu item at Zaxby’s….and indeed, they’ve just now brought back the shake at Chick-Fil-A (again, for a limited time).

But the other day I decided that I wanted to make my own.  I remembered trying some banana pudding ice cream by Blue Belle years ago, so I went to Wal-Mart with high hopes and was very excited to find this ice cream in my freezer. Yay!  Now I can have a banana pudding milkshake any time I want, and I get a lot more shake for my buck!

By the way, I made this shake using my Ninja! That thing is awesome!

Orange Dream Shake


Who doesn’t love orange dreamsicles and push-up pops?  I know I love them, especially in the summer time!  A few years ago, I got hooked on Sonic’s Orange Cream Slush.  And since then, I’ve seen orange milkshakes popping up everywhere! But it’s much more affordable and convenient to make them at home, and it’s also super easy with this recipe!

 Oh, and by the way, I also posted a similar recipe last summer. It involves a few more ingredients, but is equally good, and if you love orange, it’s definitely worth a look! Hope you enjoy!

Homemade Chocolate Frosties

I’m really excited to bring you today’s recipe!  I first saw this on another blog last minute and forgot about it.  But then several months ago, I saw it again on Food.com via Pinterest, and I made it almost immediately!

This is a homemade version of Wendy’s chocolate Frosties!  You are going to love this! It only requires three ingredients, and it tastes so yummy and just like the ones you get at Wendy’s. (Maybe even better!)

And if you like this idea, you should also try these homemade fudgesicles that I posted last year! They are fantastic!
