I hope you guys love milkshakes as much as we do. With the steamy summer days that have been sweeping the USA a little relief from a creamy dreamy shake would be nice huh! Take out your favorite magazines, set up the kiddie pool pull up a lounge chair and let’s have some shakes…..

Recently via my friend Barbara from the blog Creative Culinary brought my attention to a fun food event called Goaterie. “A group of people with shared interests in goat.”  One eyebrow raised. And then the other. Time to get my goat on. I have always been a big fan of goat cheese, my Berry Goat Cheese Pizzas are proof of that. It was time to experiment with more….much more.

The frozen bananas blended with milk, in this case goats milk tastes like rich half melted ice cream. Amazing. If you are vegan go with coconut milk, almond or rice milk.

To up the ante I made a blueberry sauce. Pour some in the middle of the shake and then even more on top. Yes, more + more = heaven. I can’t seem to get enough fruity sauces in my world. Chocolate sauce isn’t bad either.

There was something very special about this shake that goes beyond the delicious taste. It was the first time I used a big girl blender. A big, high power kitchen appliance that I knew I wanted and now finally own. It sits like a big trophy in my kitchen. Blendtec reached out to me recently and offered to send me one of their can do anything blenders.

How could I refuse?

I first purรฉed the blueberry sauce and then the frozen bananas some ice and the goats milk. The ice blended so perfectly, not a misplaced chunk to be found. It was as if the best coffee shop or juice bar on the planet made me a shake. But I did it myself! Do you like shakes? Love ’em? What is your favorite kind of milkshake?

Creamy Banana Blueberry Milkshakes

Makes two 10 ounce milkshakes

NOTES:

  • Feel free to experiment with any fruit combinations. The frozen bananas make this shake extra creamy.
  • Add any spices to taste. Pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. would all be great choices.
  • Instead of goats milk you can use any milk or yogurt you have on hand. Coconut milk would be awesome in this.
  • I have you make a lot of blueberry sauce here, much more than you will need for two shakes. You will be happy I had you do this. We use it over pancakes, parfaits, pudding and love to eat it with a spoon. It stores well in the fridge when packed in an airtight container. For long term storage you can freeze it.

INGREDIENTS

  • 11 ounces fresh or frozen Blueberries
  • 2 frozen Bananas
  • 8 ounces of Goats Milk or any dairy or vegan milk
  • 1-4 to 1/2 dropper of Vanilla Stevia Drops (this will depend upon how ripe/sweet your fruit is) or your favorite natural sweetener to taste
  • 4 ounces Ice Cubes

OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS

  • fresh Blueberries for topping
  • some ground spice, I used a dash of Ginger in these shakes

METHOD

Blueberry Sauce: Put blueberries and a few teaspoons of water in a sauce pan. Heat over medium high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 6 minutes until berries have burst. Let cool a bit and then purรฉe in your blender. Taste the sauce and add any sweetener if desired.

Milkshake: In a clean blender add milk, banana and ice in that order for the best results. Blend your shake until it is nice and creamy. Taste  to see if it is sweet enough. If you are using any spice add it now.

Shake Assembly: Fill a tall glass half way with banana shake, add a few spoonfuls of blueberry sauce, top with more shake. Add more sauce or fresh blueberries if desired.

    My favorite shake is this insane chocolate-espresso-Frangelico milkshake at B Spot Burgers in northeast Ohio – it is seriously indulgent but pretty much the most delicious thing ever. ๐Ÿ™‚

    However, I don’t really make milkshakes at home, I usually leave them for a treat when I’m out. I’m much more likely to make smoothies at home – my favorite version is:
    1/2 frozen banana
    frozen mangoes
    fresh cantaloupe cut up into chunks
    as much orange juice as it takes to get my hand blender to run

    I bet I would need less juice and be able to use more whole fruit if I won this blender, which would be great!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am currently enjoying a daily green smoothie for breakfast or lunch. Raw leafy greens, banana, frozen berries, kefir, honey, and a raw farm-fresh egg. It gives me a ton of energy to get through the morning.

    The only problem is the number of times I have to stop my plastic, 18-year old Walmart blender to stir it and get it blending again ; ) Would LOVE a Blendtec!

    • Marla
      Posted at 09:03h, 25 July

      Katy, that is exactly the same problem I was having with my less expensive blenders. The power in this thing is amazing & it has custom settings for all types of recipes. Your shake sounds awesome!

    I like to make a quick and simple chocolatey protein shake after I get home from the gym. Depending on the amount of liquid used, you can make it more like frozen yogurt consistency or more like a smoothie shake. I like to change it up depending on my mood!

    1 c almond milk
    1/2 banana, frozen
    1 c strawberries, frozen
    1 scoop chocolate protein powder
    1 tbsp cocoa powder

    • Marla
      Posted at 09:08h, 25 July

      Jessica there is something about those frozen bananas that bring about the best texture, flavor and make shakes seem like something “more” A great way to feel like you are drinking a “real” milk shake.

    I learned that the best way to load a Blendtec blender is liquids first, soft ingredients, and then hardest ingredients/ice last.

      Thanks for sharing, I wonder if this applies to other blenders, because I always put in my ice cubes (the hardest thing) first!

    We love to make smoothies at my house. My favorite is strawberry, banana and orange juice. The volume depends on how many you will be making. Start with frozen fruit (bananas and strawberries). Add 2 cups of strawberries and 1/2 a banana to blender. Use approx 1/2 cup of yogurt (can be unsweetened or strawberry flavored). Then add orange juice till it just about covers the fruit in the blender. Blend till smooth. Delicious and a healthy breakfast or snack!!

    I love shakes but my true love is smoothies (& fresh fruit margaritas/daquiris when I’m feeling really indulgent!). (Ok, so my waistline made that decision for me!) I have a tendency to go nuts when I go to farmers markets when they have fresh fruit, half of it winds up being chopped up and frozen and then being used for smoothies. I’d love to share a recipe but it’s usually just throw whatever I have in the blender and go to town. My current blender is fairly new but very pathetic. I would love a new blendtec blender to replace my cheapo! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’d love to have a big girl blender! My favorite shake/smoothie is a peach/blackberry that is just bunches of the fruit, some greek yogurt and a little juice if needed for thinning. Best if the fruit is frozen first, then it will really be thick. No need to worry about the blackberry seeds- they’ll just fall to the bottom so if you don’t slurp the last bit, no seeds!

    Oh I’ve always wanted a Blendtec! I’m going in a different direction with the recipe though! This is my favorite healthy soup that I whip up in huge batches for the week. Its all veggies and blended together tastes more decadent than you would expect!

    South West Soup
    – 1 Tbsp. olive oil
    – 1 medium red onion, finely diced
    – 1 large clove garlic, minced
    – dash ground cumin
    – dash ground ginger
    – sea salt to taste
    – dash turmeric
    – 1 large or 2 medium sweet potatoes (or yams), peeled and cut into 1/2 inch chunks
    – 1 cans black beans, well rinsed and drained
    – 1/2 cup carrots, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
    – 1 cup fresh broccoli, chopped
    – 1 quart chicken broth (can do vegetable broth to make vegetarian)
    – Juice of one lime

    Saute onions and garlic in olive oil for 2-3 minutes in dutch oven. Add remaining ingredients and simmer on low (covered) for 30-45 minutes. When sweet potatoes are soft, its done! Carefully blend soup until there are no visible chunks left (I had to do this in batches) and serve hot!

    Soup keeps well for a week in the fridge or freeze portions for later. Great as a side or even a main course!

    I’m a sucker for green monsters. My favorite monster goes like this:

    -Around 1/2 c. Almond milk
    -A couple dollops of plain yogurt
    -A few big handfuls of spinach
    -A TON of frozen strawberries. I have no measurements, I just drop em in.
    -A tablespoon or so of cocoa powder… I usually use a a lot more than a tablespoon cos I’m a chocolate fiend :p

    Blend everything up and enjoy! This makes a GINORMOUS, incredibly thick smoothie. I guess it could be split into two servings, but really… who likes sharing? :p

    I don’t make smoothies because I don’t have a decent blender. I tried using my Magic Bullet, but never liked the way the smoothies turned out and the smell of smoke wasn’t appealing. It just couldn’t handle the ice.

    But I love berry smoothies! Especially raspberry with only a tiny bit of banana in it so the banana isn’t too overpowering. I’ve been drooling over the Blendtec blenders every time they come to our Costco, but I haven’t been able to work it into the budget yet.

    • Marla
      Posted at 13:30h, 26 July

      Kathi, I agree the smell of metal grinding and smoke could kill the buzz on a great smoothie. Thankfully this blender is waaaay stronger than that.

    I would try the “Will it blend?” ipod shake! Just kidding, I definitely wouldn’t risk my brand new fancy blender on that. But I definitely would start adding greens to my shakes! My current blender doesn’t blend well enough for that… they end up stringy and gross.

    My favorite blended drink is my version of an orange julius…you put some frozen orange juice concentrate, milk, vanilla extract and ice and blend until smooth…not exactly like the original but still very tasty.

    I maintain a dairy free diet and I’ve come across dozens of recipes that blend cashews that have been soaked in water for a couple of hours, a bit of lemon juice, and sweetener to taste to create a vegan cheesecake filling. I’ve been dying to try it out, but sadly my cheapo blender can barely handle soft fruit, so there is no way it could blend cashews to a creamy texture. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

    My Milkshake of the week seems to be something along these lines: 1/2 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup almond milk, 2 frozen bananas, 1/4 cup Flax Seed, 1 scoop Super Green, 2 stalks celery, then some honey and maybe even peanut butter some days! I grew up experimenting with “milkshakes” which were always just some combo of yogurt and fruits, it never gets old!!

  • Klee

    A new blender would be nice! Here’s my favorite smoothie recipe:
    1 large banana, broken into pieces
    1/2 cup unsweetened cranberry juice
    1/2 cup frozen mixed berry blend
    3 or 4 large fresh or frozen strawberries
    1/4 cup water
    8 or 9 ice cubes

    Blend all ingredients together until smooth and serve. Makes 2 servings.

  • Alli
    Posted at 16:45h, 26 July

    My favorite smoothie-shake recipe is Apple Pie!

    To prep the day before:

    I bake some apples in my oven. When they are done cooking, I cut each apple into quarters and put the cut up apples ( now in 4 pieces…) into Ziplock bags to freeze overnight.

    By the next morning the apples are frozen solid and ready to use!

    Then to my blender I add:

    1 baked apple ( now in frozen apple goodness chunks..)
    a healthy dash of cinnamon
    1c. soy milk ( can use any milk, dairy or non-dairy..)
    1 scoop vanilla protein powder
    3 packets stevia
    1 tsp. vanilla extract

    Blend and whizz away till creamy.
    The frozen apples take the place of ice-cubes and your shake should be rich and thick.

    Dee-licious!!

    2 cups Stonyfield Organic Fat Free Vanilla Yogurt
    1 cup ice
    1 teaspoon crushed cardamom
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    Coconut milk bliss milkshakes, hands down! Melt 2-4 tablespoons of dark dark chocolate in the microwave. While that cools, pour 6 – 8 oz chilled coconut milk into the blender and blend with one frozen banana drizzle in the melted chocolate while it is blending. Feel free t add a tablespoon of nut butter while you are at it and voila!

Just a bunch of frozen fruit, maybe some coconut milk (not the canned stuff from the ethnic section of the grocery store. The boxed stuff by the almond/soy/rice milks) though I could try goat milk and some vodka.

    My favorite smoothie – 8oz of almond milk or coconut milk, a scoop of my favorite vanilla whey protein powder, 1/2 banana and four ice cubes(sometimes a handful of spinach if I have it)!! YUMMY. My current blender is so old and sad that I end up having to fish out the ice cubes that it didn’t end up crushing :o(

    Hey Marla! Gorgeous shots, as always. This summer I’ve been addicted to starting my days with a Mocha FraPROccino (that’s my made-up word for a thick, frozen beverage made of casein protein powder and iced coffee.)

    I absolutely love the Espresso Protein powder Click, and I absolutely love to make tasty shakes with it in the blender. Here is one:

    CLICK Red Eye

    8 oz. milk, soy or almond
    8 oz. coffee
    2 scoops CLICK
    2 TBS lite Hershey’s chocolate syrup.
    ice
    Pour milk and coffee into blender. Add CLICK. Then, add ice (enough to reach 2 cup mark on blender). Pulse, then blend until smooth. Add more ice and blend to make a thick shake you can eat with a spoon. Enjoy this as a meal, snack, or dessert. . You’ll feel like a cheater with this simple recipe.

    BTW… You can totally sneak a handful of spinach in this baby and no one will ever know! Doubt me? Well then… I guess you gotta try it. One serving of veggies… down the hatch!

    Tonya’s Smoothie
    Half a carafe of orange juice
    two bananas (mushy is great, frozen works too)
    half a bag of frozen strawberries
    half a large carton of vanilla yogurt
    (notice the precise measurments?)

    HoneyB’s Blueberry Smoothie
    1/2 cup frozen blueberries
    1/2 cup vanilla flavored fat free yogurt (I use Stonyfield)
    1/2 cup 1% milk (or more if needed to loosen smoothie up a little)
    2 packets Splenda sweetener – feel free to sweeten to your taste with your favorite sweetener
    2 teaspoons flax meal

    my favorite smoothie recipe is a green smoothie! They are quite popular in the blogosphere and I’ve learned that adding greens to your smoothie is not only nutritious, it can also taste delicious! My fav green smoothie would have to be:

    2 large handfuls fresh spinach
    1/2 c. frozen blueberries
    1 large frozen banana
    3/4 c. almond milk
    1 tsp cinnamon

    Add the greens first, along with the berries, milk and cinnamon. Blend on high until the greens are chopped up nice and small then add frozen banana for a creamy texture. So delicious and nutritious! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just made these amazing strawberry milkshakes for my kids. They are simple and I’m sure if I win this Blendtec Blender, I can make a larger batch in no time! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here;s my recipe:

    Strawberry Milkshake:
    serves 2 (tall) glasses

    1/2 cup whole milk
    2 cups strawberries (hulled and halved)
    1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
    2 tablespoon agave
    whipped cream for garnish on top (optional)
    2 whole strawberries for garnish

    In a blender, add milk, strawberries, ice cream and agave, blend until smooth. Pour into 2 tall glasses. garnish with whipped cream on top and a strawberry on top.

    Very delicious and my kids loved them! Thanks for a chance to win this giveaway! I can’t wait to get my hands on this hi-tech blender and make more milkshakes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, I’m really amazed by this blender’s technology! Love the Blend Cycles function that the blender can automatically speeds up and slows down, then shuts off when the cycle is complete, so recipes turn out perfect every time! Really sounds perfect and I can’t wait to try it. Didn’t know a blender can be so advanced! ๐Ÿ˜€
