This Dirty Banana recipe adds a delicious twist by substituting peanut butter whiskey for the rum. It’s a creamy, frozen cocktail that is filling and decadent.

If you’ve never had a Dirty Banana, you are in for a special treat. Traditionally, this cocktail is made with rum, Kahlua, cream, and a banana all blended into a frozen cocktail. Substituting the peanut butter whiskey for the rum adds a fantastic sweetness to this cocktail. Besides, peanut butter plus banana equals yum!


While you can use a fresh or frozen banana for this recipe, definitely make sure the banana is plenty ripe for maximum flavor. I prefer a frozen banana as it creates a creamier texture.


Warning: This adult milkshake is definitely addicting. Try at your own risk!


FAQS:

Can I make a kid friendly version?Absolutely. Simply blend crushed ice, a banana, coconut cream, a drizzle of chocolate, and a few tablespoons of peanut butter (or peanut powder) together until smooth. You have a delicious zero proof milkshake.

INGREDIENTS FOR RECIPE:

  • Banana: Using a ripe, frozen banana makes the cocktail extra creamy and flavorful. Banana liqueur can also be added for extra banana flavor.
  • Coconut cream: Coconut cream adds more tropical flavor than using half and half.
  • Peanut butter whiskey (I like Skrewball): Rum is traditionally used, but the peanut butter whiskey is absolutely delicious in this banana cocktail.
  • Kahlua: Any coffee flavored liqueur is work.
  • Crushed ice: Try using a scoop of vanilla ice cream in place of some of the ice for an ultra decadent cocktail.
