This is a rich, soothing, summer smoothie-type rum drink. It has been my husband's favorite since we began having this drink. Now he is making it for us! Be careful - these go down easy!

These are rather rich and sweet to the point of being syrupy though that could be just the cheap banana liqueur I used. A tablespoon of lemon juice and an extra cup of ice brought the batch closer to my tastes. If you're making these I recommend halving the banana liqueur initially. Read More

THIS IS A GREAT DRINK. IF YOU HAVE A GOOD BLENDER you should not need to crush the ice or mash the bananas. It has never come out syrupy and I have made it many many times. It is rich and delicious. Read More

I love this drink! I did cut the Rum down to 4 oz and added strawberries but that's a personal preference. If you use a smoothie machine you can freeze your bananas use frozen strawberries and cut down on the ice. SO GOOD!!! Read More

This was a good banana drink recipe. I used 7oz of rum and 3 oz of banana liqueur and it was just right. I also used dark rum which is just a personal preference. Be warned though this is a very sweet recipe. Read More
