Move over banana bread, banana pancakes, and yes you too banana muffins, I just found a really yummy way to use up the ripe fruit.

You have got to make this light yet tasty Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Milkshake.

Not only is this shake yummy and super easy to make. It's also a great way to use up those very ripe bananas.

I had two on my counter this weekend. I wasn't in the mood for bread, muffins, or even those two ingredient pancakes I made last week.

This recipe from, hit the spot.

Makes 1 large shake or 2 small shakes

2 medium bananas, peeled and cut into bite-sized chunks
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 cup skim or 2% milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Freeze the bananas in a covered container for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

Blend frozen bananas, peanut butter, milk, and vanilla in a blender until smooth. Add the chocolate chips at the end and pulse or blend briefly until they are chopped and incorporated.
