Banana Shake topped with whipped cream

Banana Cream Shake

It’s been a while since my last post, but now I’m back. Well, I have been learning to bake and the best way I learn – Bake it yourself! Cooking is fun but sometimes it’s like a laboratory measuring, testing etc. That requires a lot of patience!

So, yesterday I thought of making a refreshing drink. The best part is it requires very little effort and time. All it takes is a few ingredients, blend it together and top with a dollop of homemade whipped cream. While the Greek yogurt adds protein, its creamy and tasty. This is my first topping on a drink and it got me instantly excited. It tasted great! Not too sweet which I always enjoy.

TGIF everyone!

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Serves: 2

Appliance needed: Electric Blender, Hand mixer


Banana – 2 medium

Greek yogurt – 3/4 cup, (I used farmers union Greek yogurt)

Cold milk – 1 cup

Vanilla essence – 1/2 tsp

Ice cubes as required



For the whipped cream

Whipping cream – 1/2 cup (keep this in the fridge until you’re ready to use)

Powder Sugar – 1 tbsp (Icing sugar will do)

Whipping cream to make whipped cream topping on banana shake


1. In a blender, mix banana, yogurt, milk, vanilla essence, ice. Blend until smooth.

2. Remove the whipping cream from the refrigerator. Using a hand mixer whip the cream in a bowl (you can also use your hand to whip: use very very cold cream with a nice whisk).


3. Begin whipping initially on low speed at 1 and gradually increase to higher speed. In 2 – 3 minutes time it will form soft peaks.

4. Divide the shake between 2 glasses.

Scoop a tablespoon full of the whipped cream and top the banana shake. Top with nutella or any chocolate syrup desired. Enjoy!



Stay Healthy!




*I prefer less sweet. You can add more sugar if required.

*You can combine ice cream for more creamy flavor and use almond milk instead of plain milk.
