I first saw banana pudding milkshake at Chick-fil-A. They came out with the new milkshake this past spring. Every time my son and I go out for lunch, it taunts me, and I have to force myself not to order it. I know it has a ton of calories that I just don’t need on my hips. So yesterday I got the idea that I would make it at home, and try to make it lower in fat and calories. I used almond milk instead of whole milk and low-fat frozen yogurt in place of regular ice cream. Since i never indulged in the original shake, I”m not sure how much different this one tastes, but I can say this banana pudding shake is amazing. It’s addictive and is even good with a little chocolate syrup on top. That’s a tip from my three-year-old chocoholic.
