Ingredients needed for Banana Chocolate Milkshake
Frozen Milk: The specialty of this milkshake is frozen milk. Use full fat, creamy milk for the best results. You can boil, cool and freeze the milk as cubes. I stored the milk in a Ziploc bag and crushed it while using it for the milkshake.
Bananas: Bananas are one of the main ingredients of this drink. Use ripened, sweet bananas for the best result. You can also cut and freeze the bananas and use them in this milkshake for a rich and creamier result.
Nuts: I have added peanuts to this milkshake. Raw almonds and cashews can be added too. Make sure the skin is removed.
Chocolate Malt Powder: Any kind of chocolate malt powder can be used. Horlicks, Boost, Bournvita, Milo or even plain Cocoa Powder, Drinking Chocolate can be added. I always stock up on Bournvita since me and my daughters love it. Hence, I have used Bournvita in this recipe.
Sweetener: Using sweetener is optional. You can use sugar, honey, maple syrup or even dates in this milkshake.
Ice Cream: This is optional but makes the milkshake creamier and richer. You can top this delicious Sharjah shake with your choice of ice cream.
