Chocolate Banana Cake Batter Shakes

Yay for day 4 of #icecreamweek! Did you get a glimpse of that title? It says cake batter!

Everybody loves cake batter. I know I do. I love to lick it off the whisk, the wooden spoon, the spatula, straight out of the bowl. Have you ever stuck your face directly in the bowl and licked the sides of the bowl to get every last bit of batter. No. That’s just me. How embarrassing! Let’s pretend I didn’t divulge that little tidbit of information.

This milkshake is AMAZING! It’s thick and creamy and tastes just like you’re eating devil’s food cake batter right off the beaters, minus the raw eggs of course. And, it has a banana in it, which means it’s semi healthy. Don’t crush my dreams, now. It’s semi healthy, and I’m stickin’ to it. I can’t bear to buy a bigger pair of expandable pants.

Here’s a little bit about me and bananas. I don’t like bananas when they get all spotty and brown. I will not eat them when they look like bananas in the photo above. Blehk! They’re too mushy for me, and I can no longer tolerate the texture when they become over ripe. I’m making my “I hate brown bananas” face as I type this- lips puckered, forehead scrunched, brows narrowed. It’s not a good look. Instead of wasting them, I use them in things like cookies, bread, pudding, and these milkshakes.

I used a 1/2 cup of devil’s food cake batter in these shakes. The chocolate cake batter enhances the chocolate flavor, taking it to a new level of chocolatey goodness. It all creates a nice, thick shake. The kind where you’re cheeks pucker in because you’re sucking on the straw so hard to get a taste of the goodness within.

Chocolate + banana + cake batter= The best shake EVER!

What have we learned from this post? Don’t waste bananas… Make milkshakes!

    Um YES!! I love cake batter. Next time I have overripen bananas, screw banana bread. I’m making milkshakes.

      I’m kind of feeling bad for banana bread now. Everyone is going to kick it to the curb for these shakes.

    You’re a jimmy person. I’m a “sprinkle” person. It’s okay. Neither one of us is wrong…*ahem*

    Happy Day #4 of #IceCreamWeek my love!

      I love anything cute and fun topping anything with fluffy frosting. I may have one too many sprinkle/jimmy choices in my baking cabinet.

    Good god… Jennie, marry me. And I totally agree that bananas make it healthy. That way you can drink it for breakfast.

      Is that an official proposal, Kim? As long as you feed me s’mores snacks for the rest of my life, then it’s a yes!

    WHOA is the only word to describe this milkshake! It sounds like a dream in a cup. I would have never thought to mix all these things together – can’t wait to let some bananas ripen so that I can give this a try!

    Is it safe to eat raw cake mix in a milk shake? I wouldn’t eat uncooked flour, so I’m thinking uncooked cake mix would also be potentially hazardous.
