This recipe is great and you can modify it to make a filling breakfast. I skip the honey and add about an 1/8 cup of rolled oats. Its so good and fills me up right through lunch!
I changed the drink to make it more of an after dinner snack or dessert. I suggest adding a tablespoon (or more) of nutella as well as a cup of vanilla ice cream. This made it a cold, frothy and slightly chocolately tasting goodie.
This is even better if you cut the banana in chunks and freeze it before using. Also even better to use 1 cup milk and put in in the freezer for about 45 min or intil it is slushy before making the smoothie.
I have been experimenting with smoothies lately and my 8 yr old proclaimed this "The best ever" and said we should make it every day. My one year old really enjoyed it too (I thinnned hers down with extra milk). I doubled the recipe, froze the bananas to add some coolness and just blended the honey in with everything instead of drizzling it on at the end. I think I will cut the honey down next time as I though it was a tad sweet.
Having been recently diagnosed with a yeast condition in which I must stay away from sugar, I've been looking for recipes without added sugar. This tasted really more food-like and not so sugary. I used old-fashioned peanut butter and 2 small ripe bananas with 2% milk. It was yummy and satisfying without making you feel bloated from lots of sugar like other smoothies! Thank you Diane.
Fantastic! I loved the texture of the crunchy peanut butter in with this oh so smooth smoothie. I used frozen banana and a little simple syrup instead of honey to sweeten (abt a teaspoon), and about double the milk to bring the smoothie to the right thickness. It was smooth, thick, creamy, and delicious. Definitely one of my favorites.
Awesome! Can't believe I didn't think of it myself. It seems so simple, and is really, really good. Add 3 ice cubes to the blender to make it cool. I don't use the honey, as I find that too sweet.
Great! I used regular whole milk and it turned out wonderful. This will be a regular at my house!
