"Skinny" Banana Pudding Milkshake with Chocolate Malt Whipped Cream

From: Jenn@eatcakefordinner

4 large ripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen

4 Tbl. instant banana pudding mix

1 tsp. vanilla extract

up to 1/2 c. milk

Chocolate Malt Whipped Cream

4 oz. whipping cream

2 Tbl. chocolate malt powder

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Peel ripe bananas, slice and place in an air-tight container; freeze until completely frozen.  I usually let mine freeze overnight.  Add frozen bananas to a food processor and blend until chunky.  Add the pudding mix and vanilla extract and blend until completely smooth and creamy and the consistency of soft serve ice cream.  Blend in a little milk at a time, until it reaches milkshake consistency.  Divide between two small cups and top with chocolate malt whipped cream.  Or blend chocolate malt powder directly into the bananas and skip the whipped cream.  Makes 2 small milkshakes.

For the Chocolate Malt Whipped Cream: Pour whipping cream into a chilled bowl.  Beat with a hand mixer until frothy.  Add the chocolate malt powder and vanilla and continue beating until it reaches desired consistency.  

Jenn's Notes: Make sure to use ripe bananas, or the "green" banana flavor will overpower everything.
