MILKSHAKE

Recipe of the week: Trio of Milkshakes

0

Bananas, apples and peaches, oh my!

We have a trio of fruity treats to share with you today; three delicious milkshakes which are all incredibly quick and easy to make with the bamix hand blender. We’ve divided Jo-Anne’s indulgent recipes into three levels of difficulty: Easy Peasy, Medium, and A Little Bit Trickier.

MILKSHAKE

Easy Peasy – Apple Pie Milkshake:

Ingredients:

A large slice of apple pie

284ml (1/2 pint) skimmed milk

2 scoops of vanilla ice cream

 Method:

  • In a jug, add the apple pie, skimmed milk, ice cream and some of the caramel sauce
  • Using the C blade on the bamix, blitz the ingredients for 30-40 seconds
  • Then change the blade to the B blade and blend for another 30 seconds or until frothy and light

 

Medium – Caramelised Peach Milkshake:

Ingredients:

20g butter

30g brown sugar

2 sliced peaches

284ml (1/2 pint) skimmed milk

2 scoops of vanilla ice cream

 Method:

  • Melt the butter and sugar in a frying pan, add the sliced peaches and cook until the peaches are caramelised and have softened – it should take around 3-5 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool slightly
  • In a jug, add the peaches, skimmed milk, and ice-cream.
  • Using the C blade on the bamix, blitz the ingredients for 30-40 seconds
  • Then change to the B blade and blend for another 30 seconds or so until frothy and light

 

A Little Bit Trickier – Bananas Foster Milkshake:

Ingredients:

250g sugar

60g butter

200ml double cream

10g butter

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 bananas

284ml (1/2 pint) skimmed milk

2 scoops of vanilla ice-cream

Method:

  • Heat sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat until it transforms to a thick brown, amber-coloured liquid as you continue to stir. Be careful not to burn the caramel
  • Once sugar is completely melted, immediately add the cream a little at a time, whisking constantly and carefully as the caramel will bubble rapidly when the cream is added
  • Once all the cream has been added, stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted
  • Pour into a lidded container and allow to cool completely
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the cinnamon and bananas and cook until the bananas have softened (for about 3-5 minutes), and allow to cool slightly
  • In a jug, add the bananas, skimmed milk, ice cream and some of the caramel sauce
  • Using the C blade on the bamix, blitz the ingredients for 30-40 seconds
  • Next change the blade to the B blade and blend for another 30 seconds or until frothy and light
  • Serve with some more caramel sauce and enjoy!

Meet Jo-Anne:

“I started my cooking career at 12 years old when I made my uncle’s 50th birthday cake, and I cried when he cut into it. I have been cooking, baking and making birthday cakes for people ever since. I developed my skills working at the St Ermin’s Hotel in London in the pastry kitchen with an eccentric French pastry chef who taught me well and started my kitchen life.

“I’ve been at QVC for eight and a half years, I started in a tiny kitchen that was the size of a ‘Borrower’ kitchen compared to what we have now.

“I love cooking because food, especially cake, makes people smile. It has the ability to bring back happy memories. In my mind not much else other than food and the smells associated with it can do that.”
