"Three cheers for this recipe. I made with two unfrozen bananas, and would recommend chilling the drink once prepared if not using frozen produce. I used almond milk, substituted in honey for the agave nectar and left out the salt, which you'll never miss. Delicious!"
"I used light soy milk but otherwise kept to the recipe. I really enjoyed the rich frothy nature of the shake and that I could have a shake for breakfast and not feel bad about it :) Pay attention to the bit about tall glasses because for two servings this makes huge glasses."
"What a tasty and healthy shake! The cinnamon and almond milk really make this an outstanding shake. Made as written using almond milk. Will be making again. Thanks so much for the post."
"This is a tasty banana shake. I did omit the salt. Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR."
"Excellent! My 16yo vegan step-son said, "this is the most bestest thing I've ever had!" (At which point my 13yo son started in on a grammar lesson. lol.) I used Recipe #295198 made with cashews for the nut milk. This was really good! 5yo son slurped his up and 3yo son wanted more. "Don't worry! I'll make it again!" Wow! Terrific!"
"Yum! Little Miss (DD) loved this recipe. I was given agave nectar from one of my US swap partners and now I had a reason to use it. Little Miss said it's tasty and we should give this 10 stars. I used lactose free milk as a substitute. Thank you so much Sydney Mike for a great recipe."
"My kids and I loved this shake! Made with coconut milk (Silk brand Original) and left out additional sweetener since our frozen bananas were sweet enough alone. Added a few huge handfuls of spinach, powered up our Vitamix, and were rewarded with a wonderful, filling shake. Thanks for posting!!"
"This is such a nice shake! It is refreshing, sweet and yummy! Mmm, we loved the combination of cinnamon and banana, such a treat! I left out the syrup as my bananas were super ripe and next time I might add a few ice-cubes to thicken it up a bit more, but other than that I would not change a thing.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a keeper with us, Syd!
Made and reviewed for I Recommend Tag July 2011."
"Very good shake. I like that it is healthier. Mine tasted just a bit too sweet for me, so next time I will decrease the amt. of agave. Other than that, I really loved the healthy shake!"
"oh my yum!!!- I use dates to make my almond mylk so I chose not to sweeten my drink any more...delish drink...I've made it a couple of times and will again often!!! ...it is fun to sometimes add spinach also to get your daily dose of greens in with your sweets;) plus it is cool to drink a green shake-lol- made playing "I Recommend" THANKS Sydney Mike <3 !! ummm I am bananas for this recipe;)"
"Delicious. You should link the nut milk recipe on this one. I used homemade almond milk. Mine wasn't as cold as I used refrigerated really ripe bananas, creamed honey in place of agave, halal vanilla paste, to taste, plus the rest. I would make this again!"
"Yum - great smoothie! I used honey instead of agave and really enjoyed the cinnamon flavor with the banana. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2010 Event (recommended by magpie diner)"
"Oh my, this is sooo good, like dessert in a glass only good for you. Definitely use frozen banana for this if you can, it really "makes" this. The flavour combo is fantastic all around, wouldn't change a thing. Thanks Syd, I look forward to making this often. Veg*n Swap June 2010."
"Made as is and this was a wonderful shake which my husband chugged down with your Recipe #414208. What a delicious breakfast!! Thanks for this one - will make again & again! Made for Veggie Swap 23!!"
"Made this using vanilla low fat organic soy milk! Otherwise as directed (except cut in half). Very tasty and healthy and I loved the cinnamon banana combo! :) Thanks for posting! [Made for Veg*n Swap April 2010]"
"YUM! I used almond milk and loved the spicy cinnamon flavor. Very filling and satisfying! Thanks Syd! Made for the Vegetarian Swap as a recipenap! :)"
