Mmmmm. Milkshakes.

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!

Now booze on top of all that sugar and fat she always uses? Her food needs to come with a health warning!

That sounds super yummy for this hot weather. I can handle the 2 tbsp of bourbon.
