This had a really nice, light flavor to it. I used two cups of unsweetened almond milk instead of regular milk to make it vegan and instead of using 1/4 cup of ice cubes and 1/2 cup banana, i just used an entire medium sized frozen banana, which enhanced the banana flavor and chilled the drink.

We really enjoyed this one, too! Might add a bit more nutmeg and a bit more sugar next time, as well. Not a heavy drink at all.

Good, but next time I think that I will use a bit more cinnamon and brown sugar, as it was a little plain for me. But it was still very good and I enjoyed it!

I made this for my daughter to go with her lunch, she really enjoyed it, tastes just like a banana eggnog!

This has a very light banana taste. The spices are wonderful together. I did add a whole banana (just so it wouldn't be wasted) which made for more than half a cup of bananas. Thank you Amy... I Miss You Girl!

What a combination of flavours! Bananas are not what I would usually chose to add to a drink but I think the mixture of cinnamon,cloves and nutmeg make a 5 star drink. I am so anxious to make this for my grandchildren when they come to visit.

I think I love the taste of banana with spices! I like bananas (if they aren't all spotted and soft, of course), but I don't usually like banana flavored drinks. I really enjoyed this one, though. I liked that it wasn't all thick and heavy, too. Oh, and I couldn't find my open bag of brown sugar, so I subbed an equal amount of cajeta for it. Now I'll have to make it for DH to try, since he wasn't around when I made it the other day. I wonder if all the angels are enjoying Amy's creations up there as much as we enjoy them down here? :)

Love the added spice in the licuado- It sets it apart from other smoothies. I used frozen bananas instead of using ice cubes. This is going into my keeper file!

This is wonderful! I drink a lot of smoothie-type drinks, but this wasn't as filling as those can tend to be. A great afternoon pick-me-up!

I was in the mood for a new drink on a Saturday night and figured we'd give this a shot. My wife and I, as well as all our kids, loved it.
