Don’t be confused: This is not a child’s milkshake. This is a, ‘Dang, I am a grown-up and I know it’.

My friend Emily made this up and served it to me about 8 weeks ago to ‘help my throat’. I kept thinking of this drink for weeks and made my version last week for my friend ‘Sandra Lee‘.

But wait, it gets better: I froze some and ‘ate it’ before bed to soothe my throat.

I am a good doctor aren’t I? Yes, I am taking new patients.



Oops, forgot the cherry on top….

Warning: drink more than one and things may start to get a bit blurry…..

That looks tasty! I don’t know about drinking it while sick though…
Luckily I’m not sick!

Funny story is I used to work at a hotel in CO with a huge brunch and I’d make almost a thousand servings of bananas foster every Sunday. A live station, constantly making deliciously warm bananas. Now I am craving some as well, drink form please!

Im drooling here! I’ve been craving a mudslide for days this sounds sooo much better! And I can make it without the rum so I feel like less of a lush (because I couldn’t drink just one!)

I saw the recipe and made it the same evening. It is such a great balance of flavors with nothing too overwhelming, which I always find difficult when bananas are involved. I added a a little bit of vanilla extract to the mix and a shot of rum per serving. It was absolutely delicious, thank you for the recipe!
