I made this for my kids today as part of their lunch, and they absolutely loved it. Half a recipe made just enough for two toddler-sized servings (and a few sips for mom!). I used just the tiniest bit of honey because my mango was very sweet and the banana was quite ripe and therefore sweet. They tossed these back quickly and came back to the kitchen to ask for spoons to scrape off the bottom of their cups :). I'd call that a winner! Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.
I halved the recipe because it makes more than it seems like it will. :) I used stevia for sweetener rather than honey or Equal. The flavor is very banana, with a touch of mango, but it is tasty. I like the touch of coconut flavor. My kids gulped it down. They think it's junk food, joke's on them! :D
I used almond milk, left out the coconut flavoring(didn't have any). Great drink for a mild day. Thanks! Made for Please Review My Recipe Game.
