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.
