The Bomb Banana Shake!

Hey friends –
My cute little girl had to do a project for school and we decided it would be fun for her to be a guest on my new blog.  She’s totally adorable and is a superstar in the kitchen.  This is Emma.  Isn’t she cute?

Take it away, Emma!

Hello, my name is Emma.  I have two sisters and two brothers.  One of them is named Elliott.  He is so cute. My older sister is 11 years old and her name is Cassidy, and I have a little sister named Jane.  We call her Jane-Jane.  My like, brother, Corbin, is 6 years old. I’m 9.  I love cheesecake and mostly anything with potatoes.  My favorite type of cheesecake is plain with fresh strawberries.  And I can’t stand olives.  Not even a tiny bit.
For my class (I’m in 3rd grade Spectrum) I had to read a cookbook for my non-fiction.  The cookbook I read was The Children’s Step-by-Step Cookbook by Angela Wilkes. 
Rachelle: Why did you choose to read this book?
Emma: Because I love to cook stuff.
Rachelle: How come out of all the fun recipes in this book, you chose to make this recipe?
Emma: It would be the yummiest and easiest thing.
Rachelle: So you’re into working smarter, not harder?
Emma: Yes. And plus, everyone loves milkshakes.
Rachelle: Well, let’s get to this then! J

1 banana
1 Tbsp Honey
1/2 cup yogurt
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk

Wash your hands.  Make sure you have a grownup with you when you make this. Measure all ingredients and add them to a blender.  Mix it until it isn’t lumpy. Pour into a glass and enjoy the deliciousness of a homemade milk shake.  P.S. It works much better with whipped cream and sprinkles on top! And maybe a little cherry. But we didn’t have a cherry to try it out.

Rachelle:  So Emma, after trying this recipe, would you recommend this book to your friends?
Emma: Yes! Because if they read the book they could try new foods and plus maybe do it for their own genre project.  And they could make something new, too!


  1. Wow! Yummy!! Great job Emma. Thanks for sharing...I can't wait to try it.
