Yum yum yum. I was expecting kind of a low-fat coffee-banana shake but this really was more like a creamy iced latte with a heavy hint of banana, and just great. The frozen banana gave it the body/creaminess it needed being lowfat, and saying this from Seattle, where I could be lynched for such talk, I’d have to say this beats the calorie-laden creamy coffee drinks you can buy hands down, because it not only tastes good, the fat grams won't kill me! It's also dirt cheap compared to buying it. I added a packet of equal, cuz I like ‘em a little sweet, and used ridiculously strong coffee to mimic espresso.
This was fantastic! I used strong brewed espresso, chilled, and added somewhat less than 1/2 cup of lowfat milk for a very very deep coffee taste. I also added about a tsp of sugar. I started with 2 small ice cubes, and stopped there, because they were watering down the taste. Next time I will omit them altogether. I love the fact that this is lowfat and healthy, but tastes very rich, with a nice creamy texture and deeply delicious taste. Thanks, Cornelia!
I'm not a coffee drinker but made this for my other half who, for some reason or other, loves the stuff! I left out the ice cubes, but since the banana I used was huge, that gave more than enough of a frosty chill to this drink, I thought, & my other half, as expected, loved it, so I guess the recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook Tag]
