Bailey’s Banana Smoothie is a boozy frozen adult milkshake recipe that will cool you off on these hot summer days! What better way to waste the dog days of summer than with a frozen concoction?
After all, Jimmy Buffet is a fan of that!
Maybe it’s this hot, humid Southern weather, but I have been craving milkshakes this week. Normally, I’m not an ice cream or milkshake crave-er. Normally, I don’t make a cocktail at 4 p.m.
….but, this is healthy, right?
I mean, it does have a banana in it!!!

Furthermore, the simplicity of this cocktail is part of the charm of it. Who wants to spend a lot of time making cocktails? I want to spend time drinking cocktails and lying by the pool!
Am I right?
Do you need a kid-friendly drink?
If you prefer to make this non-alcoholic (but I don’t know why you would) omit the Irish cream and add three tablespoons of chocolate syrup.
