This is a great shake! My banana wasn't all that ripe but it didn't bother me at all. I don't care for super-sweet. This is so easy to make and I love the fact it doesn't need ice cream. It tasted just like the milk shakes you would buy anywhere without all the added fat. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-South and Central America.

This shake was lovely! So thick, creamy, cool and tasty! YUM! I used milk in place of water and milk power and that worked out just fine. Loved the banana in this!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful summery shake with us, morgainegeiser!

A great healthy shake! I substituted almond milk so left out the milk powder and water. Delicious! Thanks! Made for the Australian Swap Nov. 2011.
