This is an all time favourite at my house, I hope that you will enjoy it also. For best results chill the apple cider before using and don't forget to chill your glass because this sweet, rich, creamy, drink is best served in a nice chilled glass.
- 1⁄4 cup apple cider
- 1⁄2 cup blueberry yogurt
- 1 large frozen banana, sliced
- 1 cup wild blueberries, tiny, frozen
- 1 scoop banana ice cream (you may sub with frozen yogurt)
- 6 whole blueberries, garnish
- Pour all the ingredients except for the ice cream and blueberries for garnish, into a blender and process until smooth.
- Next pour into a glass and add your scoop of banana ice cream, garnish with the whole blueberries add a straw and enjoy.
Banana Pudding ice cream was the only banana flavored ice cream I could find. I also used fresh blueberries that I put in the freezer to chill before using. Typically DD doesn't like blueberries in her smoothies and she says she doesn't like banana in them, but I can sneak one in sometimes. She also wasn't thrilled with the idea of the banana ice cream. After all that complaining she gave this 4 stars. So I would say it's a winner.
A frosty delight! In order for it to blend in my food processor, I had to double the cider (and add a bit of water too). Thus the appley taste was deliciously prominent. It didn't overpower the blueberry though. Might make it again this afternoon. Thanks for posting!
I'm not surprised that this is an all time favourite in Baby Kato's house! It certainly will now be in mine too! It's not summer here yet, so I made this without icecream, but I'll add that when I do make this in summer. I also used Greek yoghurt as that's all I ever use: just love its extra-creaminess. I also loved the the apple cider in this: it complemented the banana and blueberries SO well. I'm going to try this with other berries (such as raspberries) and with a mix of berries. And in summer, I'll be making this for a quick breakfast in the car on my way to work. Thank you for sharing such a truly wonderful recipe, Baby Kato!
