I’ve named this milkshake after the famous Neapolitan ice cream that gets its name from Naples where it originated.  My friend Ed and I visited Naples last year at the end of a 2 week trip across Italy – it was a funny couple of days. We had already been to Milan, Florence, Rome and Capri – we finished our trip in Naples.

While we loved Pompeii and all the cool things to do in and around Naples we always seemed to be in a proper pickle.

We had to pay some kind of gang £30 to look after our car, we had an attempted mugging for my camera and then the car tyre blew in a less than desirable neighbourhood on the way to the airport.  The final insult was Ed’s holiday gifts for his family being stolen!  It was a great trip though and Naples did leave us with plenty of great stories.

This milkshake has a banana layer, then chocolate and finally strawberry.  It takes a little bit of patience to put together and get the layers right but I think it is worth the effort.
