Take a very ripe banana and cut it up. Put 1/2 of the banana into 2 zip lock bags and freeze.
- 1⁄2 frozen banana
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 0.5 (1 g) packet Splenda sugar substitute, to taste
- 1 dash nutmeg
- Put all in a blender, except nutmeg.
- Pour into a glass, top with dash of nutmeg.
I sort of combined this recipe with Recipe #254025 which was a Weight Watchers (flex or core) recipe that had much higher reviews. Follow this recipe but: 1 whole banana (I didn't freeze mine and it was still good) and I skipped the nutmeg. PLUS... and this is the key I got for the other recipe... ice. Mine was thick and really quite good! (maybe that means I've been dieting too long, ha ha? It is certainly not a milkshake like from an ice cream store, but it sure helped with a craving)
As other people have commented, the shake is too watery with half of a banana and a cup of milk. I ended up using the whole banana, plus a handful of crushed ice cubes. Its more of the consistency of a smoothie-icee, but I found it delicious and refreshing. Also, depending on how ripe your banana is, I omitted the Splenda because it was already sweet enough for me.
This didn't have enough banana flavor for me. I also thought that the frozen banana would thicken it up but it was to smooth. Next time I would either probaly add one whole frozen banana or 1/2 cup milk to the 1/2 of banana.
