Sniff, sniff…milkshake week is over! I can't believe it. Be sure to scroll all the way to down and click over to all of the great milkshakes our friends shared today, especially Lindsay's Cherry Lambic Beer Milkshakes (woah!). And the giveaway, the giveaway!

This milkshake is the shake that started it all for me. I wanted to make fried banana milkshakes a few months ago…inspired by my brown butter peach milkshakes from last year.

I love love bananas. Banana candy (think laffy taffy), banana bread, banana muffins, bananas in smoothies, bananas with peanut butter, everything. So why not bananas in a milkshake but kicked up several notches?

Brown butter is so pretty, isn't it? It only takes a few minutes to brown butter. Don't take your eyes off that pan!

Bananas after they went into the skillet with the brown sugar.

I even scooped some of the brown butter and put it on top and served it with the milkshake, because brown butter is life and I had to.

These shakes are little because they are rich and you need them in your life. Boom!
