Banana, Guinness and Chocolate Float {splurge}

Since I a little bit base my life on celebrations and thoroughly believe that everything should be turned into a party, it's without record to say that you bet Saint Paddy's calls for a Banana, Guinness and Chocolate Float.  Not only that, but this puts that rusty old root beer snoozefest gross gross float to shame.  Hands down.  Blow. Out. This is one float I can stand behind.


First of all, this takes 30 seconds.  So no excuses.  Secondly, I'm not trying to be one of those people who's like "oh, add a banana as a way to healthify your holiday treat blah blah blah."  No, no, no.  We are splurging here.  I'm not trying to cut calories... I am a chef who says put the banana in because it's absolutely delicious and you will miss out on a super special food moment if you don't.

Thirdly, do you know what kinds of happiness ensues when you pour an ice cold Guinness over chocolate ice cream?  I call it the foam factor.  Foam just makes people happy, that's a fact.  How else would the cappuccino be a multibillion dollar industry unto itself?  Think about it.

What you need:

  • reat quality chocolate ice cream (mine had choc chips in it).
  • Ice cold Guinness.
  • Banana, sliced in half lengthwise.
  • Chocolate syrup to rim the your glass.
  • Sexy Irishman of choice to fantasize-share with.
