Made for ZWT-8 Family Picks, this as an insanely creative idea for a smoothie! I took heavy cues from the other reviewers. Like Sydney Mike, I subbed a frozen banana for the ice cubes since I dislike the watered-down effect that melting ice creates in a smoothie. I also used a well-frosted glass for its chilling effect. All reviewers agreed about the need for a sweetener, so I added 1/2 packet of Sweet & Low. My only negative was that 1 tbsp of vanilla extract made that flavour excessive for a single serving. This is another appealing "dessert in a glass" recipe that also uses up leftover rice (if it's still very moist) & is also worthy of making rice just to make the smoothie. I liked this a lot. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. Edited to Add that I used my stick-blender w/a wide-mouth lrg jar to make this recipe in a flash. :-)

I'm with the first 2 reviewers in adding a bit of sugar! Also substituted a frozen banana for the ice cubes, but other than that, the recipe was followed! Absolutely delicious, for sure! Will be making this one again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in the current Let's P-A-R-T-Y! event]

I liked it a lot. It was not sweet so I added a little bit of sugar. Then it was perfect. Filling enough. Thanks Lainey :) Made for Holiday tag game
