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
- 1 cup half-and-half cream
- 4 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
- 1 medium banana, sliced
- 1/4 teaspoon banana extract
- In a blender, combine all ingredients; cover and process until smooth. Pour into chilled glasses; serve immediately. Yield: 4 servings.

"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!"
