I won’t name names, but someone just had to go and mention the fact that they had bought, and fallen in love with, the new banana pudding milk shake Chic-Fil-A just came out with for spring. If you know me at all you know I’m extremely susceptible to the suggestion of food and I’ve been craving that shake since! I looked it up on their restaurant site and the list of ingredients is a mile long – some I couldn’t pronounce and others I’d have to look up in a dictionary to figure out what, exactly, it is.
I knew that I could come up with my own version and make it, while not healthy, definitely healthier. You could also use the fat free, sugar free Jell-O but honestly I don’t want to ingest aspartame any more than I want to ingest some of the restaurant ingredients.
- 1 1/2 cups cold milk
- 1 small package (3.4 oz.) Jell-O instant banana cream pudding, divided in half
- 8 vanilla wafer cookies
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup ice
- Put milk, half the package of pudding mix, banana and vanilla wafers in blender and blend till smooth.
- Add ice and blend till smooth.
This will make two smaller servings or, if you’re like me, one large serving!
