It’s time to break out the blender for this cold banana beverage kissed with caramel sauce and topped with a bit of bourbon. After all, there’s nothing like a boozy treat to cool off on a warm summer day!
I love how easy milkshakes are to make. Just blend ice cream, a little milk and some of your favorite mix ins to create customized creamy treats in no time.
Don’t forget to drizzle the inside of your glasses with caramel first for a delicious presentation, and for those last tasty spoonfuls of caramel at the bottom.
Top your milkshakes with whipped cream and a banana slice on each. Yellow straws nod to the banana flavor and to summer. Hope you enjoy!
