I followed the recipe as written and we thought that it was a really nice cold coffee drink (especially on a hot afternoon when caffeine is needed/wanted). For the banana: I believe it is used more for a sweetener and a thickener then it is for flavour because you can’t really taste it. ( I used one over ripe banana. ) I also used cold refrigerated leftover coffee. We all thought this drink had the perfect amount of sweetness to it. The coffee, hot chocolate & banana combined together very well to please our tastes. THX.

It was okay. Not very cold, even though I used extra ice cubes. I make my own Frapu... type thing and it's a lot better. Banana and coffee go GREAT together, though. I use it my frozen version.

Not bad, but not really what I'd call a 'shake.' I kept all measurements the same except that I used 1 cup of coffee and 1 cup of milk. It tasted pretty good and had a nice 'foaminess' on top...the banana wasn't too strong, so don't worry about that. Like I said, this really wasn't a shake in consistency...I'm thinking that it would actually taste best if you simply blend all ingredients (expect the ice) then pour the mixture of crushed ice.

The banana I used was probably too ripe because the banana taste was way too strong. I even used a 1.25oz pouch of cocoa mix and added another tablespoon Sugar. It was still alright, but next time I'll either half or eliminate the banana.

Didn't use bananas and it was still great!

This recipe was just okay. I scaled this down to a one person serving. I omitted the banana, as I don't like banana-flavored coffee and I added a concentrated shot of coffee. I also subbed almond extract for the vanilla. I'm not big on the dry hot cocoa mix added to the coffee. I'd rather just stick to using chocolate syrup. Other than that, it was okay. Not real sure I'd make it again. I was just looking for a quick pick-me-up recipe.

A great summer cool down! I used vanilla frozen yougert instead of ice cubes to thicken it up a little the second time I made it, and loved it. Either way, its a great shake.

I ironically made a similar drink like this today. I'm diabetic so I used 2-3 packets of Equal. I also omitted the banana. Was very tasty.
