Skinny Banana Cream Pie Milkshake

Obviously, I still have pie on the brain. Except that today’s pie is in drinkable form. I turned Banana Cream Pie into a skinny milkshake.

You’re welcome.

Make this Skinny Banana Cream Pie Milkshake, it tastes like banana cream pie! Just a few ingredients, easy, foolproof, and it's under 150 calories, is low fat and can be made low-sugar!

It’s now the middle of March, which means we are going to Hawaii in 3 months. Somehow in the next three months I have to satisfy my sweet tooth and be ready to be comfortable in a bathing suit for 7 days straight.

I’m not sure how I’m going to accomplish that, especially when I have things like this pie on the brain all the time, but I’m giving it a good effort.

{If by “good” I mean “eat allthethings” then I’m doing awesome.}

I could not stop thinking about banana cream pie after last week. And whenever I think about banana cream pies, I think about milkshakes. It comes from years of eating blizzards. I come by my addiction honestly. (Have you ever had a Banana Cream Pie blizzard?? OMG.)

So I decided to satisfy my craving…in skinny milkshake form. All the flavor, less calories. #thebestkindofrecipe

Banana Cream Pie Milkshake

I know that, even though we’re encroaching on the actual start of spring, many of you are still covered in rain, sleet, and snow. Here in California, it’s been in the 70s and low 80s. Don’t hate me, mmkay? I’m just telling it like it is.

In fact, the annual “Jordan is nuts” photo happened this past weekend:

The pool isn’t heated, BTW. Even Mel wouldn’t get in.

Anyway, all this warmer weather has me wanting ice cream and milkshakes. So I went off to recreate one of my favorite pies into a skinnier milkshake.

The key component of a milkshake is ice cream. Ice cream + dieting is kind of a no-no, unless you can stop at one spoonful. I can’t. Can anyone only eat one spoonful of ice cream?

I didn’t want to use ice in my milkshake because that would water it down, especially if I wasn’t using ice cream. And then I thought of a solution: International Delight Coffee Creamer. It comes in sugar-free fat-free varieties now and I love each and every flavor.

The new International Delight Fat-Free and Sugar-Free French Vanilla Creamer kind of tastes like melted ice cream. If you freeze it into ice cubes and then blend it into a milkshake…it’s kind of like adding ice cream with out all the fat. And 1 tablespoon is only 15 calories!

Once you make your ice cubes, making the milkshake is a breeze. A milkshake needs liquid to be able to blend up and be frothy and, well, milky, so I used nonfat milk. You can also substitute your favorite dairy-free milk to this recipe (unsweetened vanilla almond would be fantastic).

Because it’s a banana cream pie milkshake, I added some banana. Bananas are high in calories (unfortunately) so I just added 1/2 of a medium one. I amped the banana cream pie flavor up by adding a teaspoon of sugar-free instant banana pudding. Adding the little bit of pudding mix (dry) gives the milkshake an amazing and authentic banana cream pie flavor.

Let’s talk comparison. Last summer I made this Lemon Pie Milkshake. I hate doing this because who really wants to know, but that recipe (using real ice cream) has 388 calories, 15 grams of fat, and 47 grams of sugar per serving.

This Skinny Banana Cream Pie Milkshake has only 142 calories per serving (that glass shown is 2 servings) with 0.2 grams of fat and 10 grams of sugars. (Not including the part of a cookie; if you’re really trying to watch calories try adding a low-fat ‘Nilla wafer!)

I think this one wins. Plus, it has banana, which is fruit, which makes this breakfast.

Or is that going too far? 😉

More whipped topping and a shortbread cookie for garnish


Directions:


  1. Freeze your coffee creamer in ice cube trays for at least 4 hours.

If you can't find the coffee creamer, you can use ice instead, but you may want to use more whipped topping to add some more creaminess and sweetness.
