My husband taught me this recipe. It's yummy. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you like (not to the blender, just on top).

Add honey at the end. 1 tbsp was too sweet for me. You may not need to add it at all as bananas are quite sweet... Read More

This is a good basic recipe for a banana smoothie with the addition of pistachios. I love using my overripe bananas for drinks like this. I followed the recipe exactly (except for cutting it down to 1 serving) and blended it for 2 minutes. The pistachios were perfectly blended into the drink and the flavor was still there. While pistachios aren't something I'll add again I'm sure others will like this flavor twist. Read More

I just made this and it's fantastic! I was going to make banana bread but didn't have enough ingredients for that so I just made the smoothie. I also didn't have a blender but - no worries! I took a bell canning jar and put all the ingredients in it and shook it vigorously. Voilia! my own hand made blender. Might-ee fine. Yeah! I just used to spoon to scoop out the unblended banana.

I used my Magic Bullet for this one! I had one blackening banana in my fridge and didn't want it to go to waste. So I divided the recipe and made one serving instead of two. I used almond milk chopped up my own unsalted pistachios and added chia seeds at the very end. So easy and so delicious! Read More

I make smoothies 5 mornings a week with bananas fruit milk and yogurt. I like to peel and freeze the bananas for thicker drinks. Also prevents wasting overripe bananas. Read More

I will definitely make this again. Simple and yummy with ingredients I had in plenty. I used frozen bananas and oat milk (just because I didn't have regular milk) and it was really good. Read More
