Used skim milk and made this in the blender. If you choose to use the blender just don't over blend to be sure you get a milkshake consistency rather than a smoothie consistency. I have to admit this was surprisingly good. Next time I'll try this with some frozen strawberries raspberries or blueberries. Read More

I must've not mashed it enough or something - because just mashing it ain't cutting it. It's kinda gross with the chunks. It would probably be better if a blender is used. Read More

I really enjoy this "Banana Milkshake." I make it all the time with coconut milk and water (instead of dairy milk) since I am dairy intolerant. I like a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg in mine. I find it is an excellent way to make good use of frozen ripe bananas. Thank you Graciebelle for sharing your recipe. Read More

This is one of my favorite low calorie summer treats. I also add Hershey's syrup when I have a chocolate graving and a little vanilla to kick the flavor up a bit. Read More

It was really good in taste. I did not use a blender so it was not blended well but it tasted great. Read More

This reminded me of the milkshakes of my youth. Next time I'd make sure the milk was ice cold so the drink comes out very cold. Read More

It was very yummy and my husband enjoyed it frozen. It was more like ice cream than a shake for him. Mmmmmm I'll probably make this pretty often now. Read More
