This is delicious on a hot day. Also, it satisfies the thirst for a milkshake with ice cream! Using almond milk, combined with the cinnamon and banana, creates a very flavorful, sweet treat using natural flavoring.

What a treat!! I used one of my frozen bananas you know the ones when they get too ripe to eat but are perfect to freeze. Anyway I used just regular whole milk and still used the 4 ice cubes. Absolutely perfect. I was sure I'd have to put a sweetner in it but alas it was perfect just as written. I'll be making this a lot this summer for a perfect "milkshake". Read More

I added spinach and orange juice. It is a good beverage for breakfast but I would have to add more ingredients to supplement this for a meal. It taste ok. Read More

I had a very ripe banana super sweet and flavorful and this turned out very well. Breakfast today but this would be a great mid-afternoon snack as well. Read More

I love how simple and delicious this recipe is! My son couldn't get enough. I used whole milk instead of almond milk but that's the only change I made. Can't wait to make it again! Read More

I usually hate when people change the recipe and then rate it Bc technically it's a different recipe but I followed it all exactly (even the amount of ice) but all I had was chocolate almond milk. But it turned out amazing. It has the consistency of an actual drink instead of a thick smoothie or something (which is what I usually like) but surprisingly like this better. So if you're a review reader like I am two thumbs up for this one. Make it. Lol Read More

This is a very simple recipe that seems like no recipe is needed. But it inspired me to make a treat for myself and it truly does fill the craving for a high-calorie alternative. It is healthy couldn't be easier and anyone can add whatever in the way of natural flavors or fruit. The only change I made was to freeze my banana pieces before blending. Delish and feels so good in hot weather! Read More

So refreshing and good. I used 2 tbsp of yogurt as well and a little less milk like 2/3 cup instead of 3/4 as well as Pumpkin pie seasoning instead of cinnamon. Literally took me less than 5 minutes to make it. Read More
