Frozen fruit smoothies are a favorite for the whole family. Why pay an arm and a leg for them when they're so easy to make at home? For an adult variation, try a shot of Captain Morgan on a warm, summer evening after the kids have gone to bed. Tip: Freeze bananas after peeling to save yourself a lot of hassle.
- 1 banana, peeled, sliced, and frozen
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 (1 g) packet Splenda sugar substitute or 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- 1 fluid ounce spiced rum (optional)
- whipped cream (optional)
- Put all ingredients into the blender.
- Process on medium-high speed until smooth.
- Top with whipped cream and an additional dash of nutmeg if desired.
This was delicious. However! Make sure you peel AND SLICE your nanas before freezing. I didn't and my blender (stainless steel blades) just about had a heart attack. I would recommend using fully ripe bananas (mine were only just) as it will increase the banana flavour. I only used 2/3 teas sugar and it was really lovely. Awesome with a little whipped cream and lightly dusted with chocolate flakes... If you use half the milk it is more like a banana dairy whip...so I think that's tomorrow's plan!
Very tasty and refreshing smoothie. It really hit the spot on a 90 degree afternoon. Skipped adding the optional ingredients and added the 2 tsp of sugar. I have two more ripe bananas in the freezer right now!
To put it simply...very yummy! I added about a 1/3 cup of frozen cherries and used vanilla soy milk instead of regular milk. Very good and very easy. My new favorite smoothie recipe!
