"This mango milkshake with banana is great! Add vanilla bean ice cream if you want this to be a really rich drink. If you add too much vanilla ice cream it will start to taste like a vanilla milk shake instead of a mango drink." — wwtech69

banana, cut in chunks
vanilla ice cream
white sugar, or to taste
ground cinnamon, or to taste
ground nutmeg, or to taste
this is really good and refreshing, very fruity...i used a frozen banana and added about 5 ice cubes to make it thicker...anyways it was really sweet (so it doesnt need the extra sugar)and had that tang of mango...perfect for summer...
I cut and froze my mango and banana the night before specifically for this smoothie. I used homemade frozen vanilla yogurt last night instead of ice cream and Truvia instead of sugar. Honestly, this had too much milk. I think it would have been much better had I cut the milk back by half, at least.
Hubs loves his breakfast drinks on weekends. Whether you call them smoothies or milkshakes, whether they have yogurt or they don’t, no matter what fruit is added to them, he loves ‘em. Me? I really could take ‘em or leave ‘em, as I’ve never tasted one good enough to warrant all the calories and sugar, even if that sugar is just from the fruit. Besides, after making them awhile, one began to taste pretty much the same as another anyway. Not this time. While I had plenty of berries on hand, both fresh and frozen, I was determined to find something different to try, and this was it. Frozen mango came in handy, and because of that and the fact there was already quite a lot of milk in the drink, I chose not to add the optional ice cream. I added the cinnamon but didn’t want to push it and take a chance with the nutmeg, so I left it out. I handed this creamy, frothy milkshake to Hubs, then tried a little myself and thought, wow, this is awesome good! Uniquely different and 5-stars for sure! And even tho’ I didn’t expect Hubs would agree, he did! So what was so different about this? It wasn’t thick and gloppy, it was refreshingly light. It wasn’t overly condensed with flavor, again refreshing. It didn’t have the sour tang of yogurt. Most of all, it wasn’t your same old tired, berry smoothie. If I had any criticism at all, it would be that I might have liked a little more mango, but that would just be overly picky.
Extremely good and light. I tried it without ice-cream. My husband on the other hand prefers having it with a couple of spoons of plain yogurt - makes it bit thicker, than the milk-only version, but not as rich as ice-cream version. One of my favorites!
This is just like its name...YUMMY!! :D I loved it and...I did use one whole mango (coz the it was a small mango) and 2 bananas (these were the small variety...alot more flavorful and very different from the normal bananas)....the only thing I skipped was sugar but that's coz I used a scoop of vanilla ice cream...this filled up 3 tall glasses....thanks for this recipe!
this recipe would've tasted so much better without the bananna.
I added a scoop of vanilla protein powder. You can't taste it, and it was a great after workout drink. Not too heavy. I would have liked to taste the mango more, but the mango I used wasn't the best.
This was really tasty. I left out the sugar since I used a bit of vanilla ice cream. Didn't use very much milk, but I like my smoothies/milkshakes really thick. 2 cups of milk would have made it really thin, IMO.
