ground cinnamon, for garnish
I used frozen bananas, fat free evaporated milk, and cut back on the ice. My kids thought it tasted like banana bread! They drank up all four servings.
I made this smoothie today in honor of National Banana Lover's Day :) I scaled it back to one serving and used skim milk, fat-free evaporated milk, and Splenda. Still delicious!
I thought this tasted pretty good. It kind of reminded me of of a banana version of orange julius. I changed the servings to 2, or half the recipe, with the calculate button. The only change I made was subbing reduced fat milk and evaporated milk and 1 packet of Truvia for the sugar. My ice is not crushed, so I went with 6 ice cubes for the 1 cup I needed. The only downside, is I just wish evaporated milk came in smaller cans. I really dislike opening a can unless, I am going to use it all. However, I think it added some kind of a slight creaminess to the texture I don't normally get from just using milk in similar banana milk drinks. I also didn't add the cinnamon on top, because I forgot. I thought it tasted fine without it.
my son and I really loved this.didnt have ice on hand but was so good.
While simple and easy...it wasn't our favorite, it was okay. Not sweet and not seasoned enough with nutmeg. My daughter and I added sugar and nutmeg until she was satisfied. But we both agreed, it still had the after taste of evaporated milk slightly above the banana taste.
