Caramelized Banana Pudding Ice Cream Milkshake with Marshmallow Whipped Cream

I am super excited to team up with International Delight again this week for another recipe. Last week I made Caramel Macchiato Apple Bread Pudding with ID but this week I am using their new Cold Stone Creamery "Sweet Cream" flavor. Since it's crazy hot here in Louisiana (and pretty much everywhere else) this summer I wanted to make a cold, creamy, decadent, and delicious milkshake! But this isn't just any milkshake, y'all! We make our own unique ice cream, blend it into a milk shake, then top it with Marshmallow Whipped Cream!
One of my favorite Southern desserts is Banana Pudding so I wanted to turn that into a tasty ice cream. However, when I was experimenting with creating the perfect flavors I decided to caramelize the bananas before putting them in the ice cream base. This flavor turned out better than I expected with a buttery brown sugar flavor that reminded me of a Bananas Foster crossed with a Banana Pudding!
 *Swoon* Can it get any better than that?!
  Hope you enjoy this Caramelized Banana Pudding Milkshake with Marshmallow Whipped Cream as much as I did!

Ingredients:  

For the ice cream:
  • 2 large bananas, sliced
  • 2 cups of Cold Stone Creamery "Sweet Cream" flavor by International Delight
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 box (approx 40) Vanilla Wafers
  • 1 box (approx 3 oz) vanilla or banana flavored pudding mix
*Note: Try adding a tablespoon or two of rum for more of a Bananas Foster (adult) taste!
For the milkshakes:
(Makes two large shakes)
  •  1 - 2 cups whole milk (depending on how thick you want it)
  • 4-5 heaping scoops Caramelized Banana Pudding ice cream
  • 2 cups Marshmallow Whipped Cream
  • 2 Vanilla Wafer cookies, for garnish
  • 2 straws
For the Marshmallow Whipped Cream:
  •  1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  •  1/2 cup Marshmallow Fluff
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions: 

For the ice cream:
  1.  Melt butter in a skillet over medium low heat.
  2. Add brown sugar, stir and caramelize and darken slightly, about 30 seconds
  3. Add sliced banana and stir until softened and caramelized, about one minute. Remove from heat.
  4. Place vanilla wafers in a food processor and pulse until they are crushed down but still have some texture and small chunks. 
  5. In a large mixing bowl with a mixer attachment, combine caramelized bananas, crushed vanilla wafers, dry pudding mix, milk, and Cold Stone Creamery "Sweet Cream" flavor by International Delight
  6. Blend on low until combined and use a rubber spatula to make sure all the dry mix is incorporated in the bottom of the bowl. 
  7. Pour into a freezer bowl of an ice cream machine and mix according to ice cream machine instructions, usually about 20 minutes.
  8. When the ice cream is finished it is very soft (but mighty tasty!). I recommend putting it in a freezer safe covered container and freezing for another 2 hours before preparing the milkshake. 
For the milkshake:
  1.  Add 4-5 scoops of Caramelized Banana Pudding ice cream to a blender.
  2. Add 1-2 cups of whole milk (start with one cup and add more if it is too thick)
  3. Blend until smooth and combined.
  4. Top with Marshmallow Whipped Cream, a straw, and garnish with a vanilla wafer cookie. 
For the Marshmallow Whipped Cream:
  1. Chill a mixing bowl and mixer attachment in the freezer until ready to use.
  2. Remove bowl and mixer from freezer and add heavy cream, marshmallow fluff, vanilla, and sugar to the bowl.
  3. Mix on high until soft peaks form.
  4. Serve a large scoop on top of each milkshake or store in a sealed container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Start by chopping 2 large bananas into bite sized pieces.
Melt butter, then add brown sugar and finally bananas. Cook until soft and caramelized.
Using a food processor coarsely chop vanilla wafers.
Combine wafers, caramelized bananas, and pudding mix in a large bowl.
Add 2 cups ID Coldstone Creamery Sweet Cream and milk and mix on low speed until combined.
Once mixed, use a rubber spatula to make sure all the dry ingredients, like the pudding mix, are incorporated. Now it's time to make ice cream!
Pour mix into the frozen spinning container of an ice cream maker and mix according to instructions, about 20 minutes.
Remove from the ice cream maker and now you have soft serve ice cream!
Put in the freezer for a couple of hours for it to harden completely. 
Now time for the milkshake!
 Take your hardened ice cream out of the freezer. Add 4-5 heaping scoops to a blender.
 Add 1- 1 1/2 cups cold whole milk to the blender and mix until combined.
Top with a mound of whipped cream, a straw, and a vanilla wafer.

Not a fan of whole milk? This is a decedent treat friends and whole milk, along with full fat ice cream, will give the milk shake a thicker, smoother consistency (more than skim or low fat varieties). 
Another tip: Keep the milk nice and cold until you are ready to blend (you can even put the blender jar in the fridge until ready to use) and make sure the ice cream is frozen and right out of the freezer. 


Don't forget the secret to perfect whipped cream:
freeze your mixing bowl and mixer attachment! 
Make sure it is icy cold when you are mixing your cream and sugar on high and you will get fluffy whipped cream in no time!
Cool down and treat yourself to this decadent summertime dessert!
