MAKES 2 DRINKS
A small amount of ice makes this drink frosty without making it too slushy, while the bananas and ice cream keep it rich and smooth.
2 bananas, peeled and broken into pieces
1 cup vanilla ice cream
2 ice cubes
2 heaping tablespoons malted milk powder
½ cup milk
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.
