Quite good...debated 3 or 4 stars. Nice and smooth and creamy but a bit too watery for me. Might substitute milk for the water or use a cube or two less ice. Of course you could half this recipe. Try using honey instead of brown sugar or adding a pinch of your favorite spice. Also check out the Banana Anna recipe on this site - both are great. Read More

Used skim milk and left out the water; pretty tasty and refreshing. Simple to prepare. Also added a little bit of cinnamon. Read More

I made this for my 6 year old daughter. She really liked it. There was some left over so I gave it a taste even though I don't like bannanas. I am glad I did. This was one of the best smoothies I have ever tasted. The texture is perfect. Can't wait to make this for my husband. Thanks for sharing this with us. Read More

Thanks so much! I had strep throat and without being able to eat anything for a few days I thought I was going to die! The only difference was I left the water out. Thanks so much again!! Read More
