A chocolate milkshake is always a great treat. But add in some banana and cookies to make a delicious chocolate banana milkshake!Jump to Recipe
Most of the time, when our bananas start to go bad, we just make some banana bread. But this time, we decided we wanted something new and different. We try not to have ice cream in the house often, but decided to use that and our bananas to make a chocolate banana milkshake.
Justin is picky about his ice cream and usually doesn’t like to eat it just as a bowl of ice cream. He prefers to make a milkshake out of it. There are only certain brands and flavors that he will eat plan. When he makes a milkshake, it’s usually a chocolate milkshake made with some chocolate powder and chocolate syrup mixed with vanilla ice cream.
We decided that we both wanted a milkshake, and chocolate banana is always a good combination. So
we Justin made a full pitcher this time so there was enough for both of us. Most of the time I like to get my ice cream in a bowl. Justin uses the Magic Bullet to make an individual-sized milkshake.
The shake started as his regular chocolate milkshake, and we added the bananas into the blender as well. This way we made something different than normal. And were able to use up some of the bananas that we had going bad in the pantry.
Tyler has been insistent on banana bread lately. But next time we have some bananas starting to get soft (aka when they have the most flavor for putting into recipes), I think we are going to break out the blender and make these shakes again.
Step by Step
Add the bananas, ice cream, chocolate powder, chocolate syrup, and milk to a blender and blend until smooth.
If the milkshake is too thick, add a little more milk to thin it out.
Pour the chocolate banana milkshake into serving glasses. Top with whipped cream, drizzle with chocolate syrup and garnish with sliced bananas.

I have never heard of a chocolate banana milk shake. I think this is something I am going to have to try!
We hadn’t either! We had the ingredients so decided to experiment and it was delicious!
I love how you’ve done the glass – very pretty! My kids love milkshakes and when there’s some chocolate thrown in, even better!
I always thought the glass looked so fancy like that. Then I realized just how easy it is to do! My husband showed me the first time he made milkshakes when we were dating.
This look so easy and delicious. I’m definitely going to make this on my brother’s birthday! I love the presentation and everything, it’s so nicely done. Thank you for giving me a brand new recipe!
Sounds like a great treat for a birthday!
Stephanie, this looks so good, I can taste it just looking at the pictures. I am going to try and let you know.
I hope you guys enjoy it!
My husband would love this! I’m personally not a big fan of anything banana, but my husband LOVES it! I’ll have to try making this for him.
I bet he would welcome this if he is a fan of banana! My boys love banana and couldn’t get enough of the milkshake.
I am literally salivating while reading this!!! OH MY YUMMMM!!!!!
You should make one, then! They are easy and taste as delicious as you’re imagining 😉
Looks good. My son doesn’t like fruit but I’m sure he would drink this milkshake despite the banana.
If he doesn’t like the fruit in it, you can make it without and it’s just a chocolate milkshake.
Wow! Nice chocolate drizzles, that looks decadent. I’m going to try it with almond milk and almond milk ice cream to keep it dairy free.
That sounds like a great option! We use almond milk here, but not dairy-free ice cream since we don’t have a dairy allergy.
After reading this and seeing I have all the ingredients, I got up to make me a yummy shake. Thanks for sharing.
Enjoy! It’s one of our favorites here for sure. My boys especially love the banana flavor in it.
This banana milkshake does look delicious. It actually reminds me a shake I just had at Knott’s Berry Farm last night which was a boysenberry pie milkshake but it had a similar look. I am sure this tastes amazing.
Oh, that sounds like an interesting milkshake, too! I’ve never had a boysenberry before, but I’d love to give it a try sometime.
Ooh, chocolate powder AND chocolate syrup?! I am a chocolate addict. And among the things that go especially well with chocolate are peanut butter, raspberries, and BANANAS.
I am a chocolate addict too, so yes, both! Bananas or strawberries are my favorites with chocolate.
This looks so good. I have some bananas I need to use up and I think this is what we will do with them. Thank you for sharing and giving me the idea!
We almost always have bananas that need to be used, too. This was our way of doing something a little different.
I keep bananas that get overly ripe frozen in my freezer for banana bread. As we usually just have 1 or 2 at a time, I just mash them and put in a mason jar. I may have to rethink my plans for them!
The first time I tried to freeze bananas I didn’t realize you couldn’t freeze them whole and that was a disaster. I’ll have to try mashing them first next time!
My kids are obsessed with anything banana. They would absolutely love this. The chocolate syrup makes it that much better!
Mine too. They love bananas. My youngest had a “banana party” for his third birthday!
oh that is amazing!!! Who doesn’t love a delicious chocolate banana milkshake and this one looks sooooo delicious. I will try to make it this weekend.
Chocolate and banana just go so well together! I hope you enjoy 🙂
Oh I have never made a chocolate banana shake. Sounds delicious. Though to be honest I would not have though to use overripe bananas so that’s a good thing to note.
When the bananas get overripe they tend to have more flavor for recipes like this. Also, they mash a lot easier so they can blend in with everything.
I love banana and chocolate together! This looks like such a delicious treat and one I might have to make tonight.
Me too, it’s such a great combination.
wow that is so easy. I have never made a chocolate banana milkshake before. I will try it tomorrow.
We used to make chocolate milkshakes all the time, so decided to switch it up a bit with the banana. It came out even better than we thought it would.
These two is so perfect together..! I always make do something like this every summer. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.
We love milkshakes in the summer, it’s a great treat for cooling off when it’s so hot outside.
Chocolate milkshakes are my kids favorites. I’m going to have to try adding the banana next time to add a little bit of healthiness to it. Great idea!
My kids love them, too. And since they both love bananas, they devoured these!
I have been craving milkshakes like crazy so I feel like i need to go to my kitchen and make this now! Looks and sounds so delicious!
I craved them a lot when I was pregnant, but at that time we didn’t think about adding the banana!
My hubby is the biggest milkshake fan ever!!! I’m always looking for new twists when it comes to a milkshake. Will definitely be trying this!! Yum!
My husband has been making them since I met him almost 15 years ago. He said the same thing, that it was nice to have a slightly different way to make them.
Chocolate and bananas.. yuuuum! So delicious. I’m getting these ingredients and I’m going to be sure to make it this weekend. You can’t never get enough of this delicious combination.
It’s such a yummy treat and so easy to make. Enjoy!!
I made it at home. It makes delicious yummy.
