I love bananas and these shakes are the best. Though we're stationed overseas, I've fed my two young kids these made-in-moments drinks since they were babies. Pop them into the freezer for a few minutes if you like them thicker. Or try different flavors using chocolate or strawberry ice cream. -Martha Miller, Camp Zama, Japan

"I modified this recipe because I didn't have all the ingredients. I used half skim milk and half 'half n half', butter pecan ice cream and vanilla extract and 3 frozen bananas. DELISH!"
