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.

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 ½ 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.

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!

Or is that going too far? 😉

  1. Yummy!  This looks spectacular!!!  And I love that you made it skinny because I would down 2 of these in one sitting.

  2. Shut the front door!!!  What an awesome idea to freeze the creamer to blend into a milkshake!!  I love this fun and skinny idea!  I am totally jealous of your weather and pool.  I am cracking up at Jordan jumping into the pool.  Actually it looks like she is hovering over it! Our kids were so excited for the 55* here the other day that they wanted to drag out the sprinkler.  I was all like “are you nuts?” And Hawaii sounds like so much fun…the swimsuit part though, no so much!  Good luck with that 😉

  3. This is so creative, Dorothy!! But you always are!!! 🙂 This sounds delicious. Banana milkshakes are actually one of my favorites. It’s an underrated milkshake flavor, but the ‘cream pie’ part, that’s even better!! It’s probably all in the creamer flavor! You just made me miss California weather so much.. I lived in San Fran for 2 years. I love FL too, but summer approaching is actually a bad thing for us. Haha! CA was always gorgeous year round. Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe!

    1. It totally is an underrated flavor!! Out here in Sacramento, summer is no joke either. Makes me miss SF even more!

  4. 70-80 degree weather?! I need to move to California asap! This milkshake looks AMAZING! Omg. And I’m totally with you, bananas = breakfast.. I would totally have this for breakfast lol!

  5. Freezing the creamer into ice cubes is genius, Dorothy! Love that I can drink my pie in a yummy milkshake, it looks incredible!

  6. Wow! I never thought about freezing the ice cubes for a milkshake!! That is fantastic! I have to try this!

  7. I’m with Mir – we should have Pi week, not just day.  This milkshake looks scrumptious!  And I love that you made it light.  Great that you are going to Hawaii!  Just wear a long dress for the Christmas card photos – the local women find some gorgeous ones (with some pretty high-heeled sandals, of course)!

    1. I can’t wait to go shopping, although I’ll probably end up buying a sarong at the ABC store, ha!

  8. Okay, so I’ve never had a banana cream pie blizzard, but a few summers ago, I was obsessed with Chick-fil-a’s banana cream pie shake…which they have since stopped selling. I’ve been a little bitter. BUT. This looks ah-mazing! Everything banana cream, please! 

  9. Okay, you’re a genius. Freezing the coffee creamer?! I love that stuff! And I love this milkshake (but I’ve never actually had a banana cream pie blizzard!)!

  10. You’re a genius! Way to make a creamy, banana cream pie flavored milkshake with so few calories! I’ll try to be good and stop with just one serving 🙂
