    TeaLeavesGreen's Note:

    This recipe comes from the first cookbook I ever had -- a children's cookbook whose name has long been lost. This is still my favorite recipe for banana smoothies -- it's incredibly easy, tasty, and decently healthy. Don't let the nutrition facts fool you -- this recipe is nice and sweet. The riper your banana, the sweeter it will be. If you REALLY have a sweet tooth, you could add sugar, but I never bother -- the vanilla and banana make it sugary enough.

      Mmm! My 11 year old son made this for us. He doubled the recipe and our bananas were very ripe. He added sugar and whipped cream. Thanks for posting such a nice drink.

      This was so easy to make. My daughter is lactose intolerant so I used lactose free milk. Also used a banana that was turning brown and a few drops of imitation vanilla essence. Did not need sugar, as the banana flavour and vanilla was perfect. Little Miss (DD) demolished the smoothie and then asked for another one. Thank you TeaLeavesGreen
