Frozen Banana Smoothie

"Frozen fruit smoothies are a favorite for the whole family. Why pay an arm and a leg for them when they're so easy to make at home? For an adult variation, try a shot of Captain Morgan on a warm, summer evening after the kids have gone to bed. Tip: Freeze bananas after peeling to save yourself a lot of hassle."

  1. I just used the cup of milk, sugar, frozen banana slices, vanilla extract and the flavor turned out superb but it wasn't cold enough for me, so next time I will add some ice cubes (I like my smoothies extra cold). I am going to experiment next time and add peanut butter or perhaps some frozen chocolate bar chunks. Thanks so much for this simple and amazing recipe. It will be my go-to since I love banana milk.
  2. This smoothie is amazing!! I added 14 chunks of canned, cubed, frozen pineapple and blended everything together in my Vitamix blender (minus the rum and the whipped cream). The texture was that of a cloud and the taste was extraordinary. I'd give it 6 stars if I could :)
  3. It was really good, but you should add about 3/4 teaspoon flax. It makes it filling! Yum Yum Yum!
  4. This was delicious. However! Make sure you peel AND SLICE your nanas before freezing. I didn't and my blender (stainless steel blades) just about had a heart attack. I would recommend using fully ripe bananas (mine were only just) as it will increase the banana flavour. I only used 2/3 teas sugar and it was really lovely. Awesome with a little whipped cream and lightly dusted with chocolate flakes... If you use half the milk it is more like a banana dairy I think that's tomorrow's plan!
  5. Very tasty and refreshing smoothie. It really hit the spot on a 90 degree afternoon. Skipped adding the optional ingredients and added the 2 tsp of sugar. I have two more ripe bananas in the freezer right now!
