I like the word “banoffee”. Probably because I’m always combining words. Like instead of blueberry pancakes, I might say blancakes or instead of a crumble cobbler, I might say crumomble or cobumble. These word combos aren’t nearly as cute as banoffee which is bananas and toffee (or caramel in this case) though.
But regardless, you should know that this milkshake is maybe a smoothie (smilkshake?). It’s a smoothie in a milkshake outfit. You see, there’s no ice cream, but rather frozen bananas giving it that chilly-willy, thick, and dreamy consistency. And those frozen blended bananas (fronanas) will probably grow up to marry goat milk caramel because they belong together. Add as much caramel as you want to this concoction! Maybe drizzle some in the glass before filling. Make this your own, ya know? Live the banoffee life.
P.S. See below for a chance to win some of this dreamy caramel! Thanks to Fat Toad Farm for working with me! They’ve got mad skills, so I ‘m excited to be able to send along a jar to one of you guys! You see this caramel is a salty sweet dream!
Banoffee Milkshake (makes 1 large or 2 small)
- 2 peeled and frozen bananas, chopped
- 1/4-1/2 cup milk
- 2-4 T caramel, to taste
- Place the bananas, 1/4 cup milk, and 2 tablespoons caramel in a blender or food processor. Add more caramel to taste, and more milk to thin it out. Serve with sliced bananas and more caramel. I topped mine with crumbles leftover from this ice cream, but cookie crumbs or graham cracker crumbs would be super tasty!
Yay! Click HERE for a printable pdf of the recipe above.

Purring and sleeping cats make me happy. As does successfully making a new recipe and/or tweaking a new recipe slightly and having it come out delicious, still. I love cooking/baking so much because it’s a new challenge to meet and grow from each time you set out to nourish your body. You set new goals and break them for yourself with every meal/snack/treat. It’s food for the mind, body and soul.
My wonderful husband, puppy, exercising and baking all make me very happy.

Everything about this milkshake makes me happy. But seriously – goat milk caramel?!
Summer makes me happy! And this milkshake would make me happy too! I’ve been making all kinds of smoothies using frozen bananas. Now I’ll have to try adding caramel. Plus this is still like healthy, right? 😉
Local produce tops my list of things that make me happy. Strawberry picking? I die.
berrying in the summer makes me happy. we just closed out local strawberry season here in MA and I picked about 12 pounds and turned 8 of them into strawberry preserves to give to friends. (giving preserves to friends makes me happy, too! 🙂 )
on another note, I love banoffee anything, especially the banoffee pie at Co. in NYC. AMAZING.
Baking quick loaves makes me happy! And bananas! And my Pinterest board of baby animals. And your blog! Would love some homemade caramel 🙂
My dog and cat make me happy, I call them my emotional support team!
I love family gatherings and just being around people I love.
Something that makes me very very happy right now in the middle of a heatwave is my air conditioner. I know it’s healthy to spend time outside and such, but it’s silly hot out there.
Picnics top my list of things that make me happy, followed closely by tipsy movie nights and fresh bread. But if I’m lucky that caramel will eclipse all the others.
My longhaired Dachshund makes me happy!
sitting on porch swings with old friends!
I’d say sweet salty caramel definitely makes me happy! Favorite iced latte is one with salty caramel 🙂

Yesterday I saw a picture of peanut butter cookies dipped in chocolate with sprinkles. Just the thought of baking these with my best friend while I’m home this summer melted my heart.
Homemade chocolate ice cream and hot fudge all to myself 🙂

One of the things that makes me happy in the summer are farmer’s market tables filled with heirloom tomatoes – the BEST summer produce!
And i liked your facebook page too!
These sound so great! I love that there is no ice cream in them. I love ice cream but my husband usually eats it all in one sitting so there isn’t any left for milkshakes.
weekends make me most happy 🙂 no work, just quality time with my wife and puppy!

Cooking and gardening with children makes me very happy 🙂
Being able to enjoy delicious animal products that come from animals who get to be happy and do there natural animal thing instead of being treated like little money-making machines. My old dog rolling like a puppy in the grass. My young dog jumping 3 feet in the air for her food. Harvesting my own food or eating food that was harvested very nearby. A stout mixed with a raspberry wheat on the patio of my local brewery. Laughing with good friends. Mountains. Sunsets…
Chocolate ice cream.
