Posted in response to a recipe request. This is a modified recipe from one I found in Cooking Light. The original called for a couple of tablespoons of graham cracker crumbs & some Cool Whip, and was called Banana Cream Pie...but I prefer it the way I've typed it. It's also a great way to get some more calcium into your diet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
  2. Note: To freeze bananas, slice and place on baking sheet. Freeze for a minimum of one hour. Store extra banana slices in a plastic bag in the freezer for quicker preparation later.
  3. Variation: Add about a 1/4 cup of chocolate chips to the blender after all other ingredients have been well blended, and blend until finely chopped.

This was a good smoothie, and you can really taste the banana unlike some others. I didn't use the ice since my bananas were frozen solid it was frosty enough. I did all 2 Tbs Splenda since my bananas were not overripe. Made for I Recommend Tag.

WOW, this smoothie is seriously good! It is so thick, creamy and yummy! I could not get enough of it, it was just like eating ice-cream, only so much healthier! :)
I left out the milk powder as I dont have it on hand and by mistake used about 8 ice-cubes for half the recipe. The result was a very thick and super frosty drink that I gobbled up quickly.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a real keeper with us, Karen!

Yum! This was very good. I like a thicker smoothie & this fit the bill! I did add 1 tsp of honey to make it sweeter, but next time I may not add it, because it was pretty sweet on its own! Thanks for posting Karen!
