Banana Smoothie

This banana smoothie has to be one of my favorite recipes because it can be made in a flash, yet it's full of flavor. I think the honey adds just the right amount of sweetness. Everyone will love it...not just banana lovers! —Ro Ann Cox, Lenoir, North Carolina

    Great smoothies. I sometimes omit the honey and had some peanut butter for protein.

    This banana recipe was a great, morning and after workout smoothie, however I believe it was too sweet. Perhaps less honey or no vanilla could lessen the sweetness. But it wasn’t too over powering, and it tasted mostly how a banana smoothie should, so overall I would rate it a 4.5 out of 5! :)

    SO GOOD! I added some ice as well. Absolutely delicious, and there are no ingredients that you don’t have at home. New go-to!

    What an easy and kid-friendly recipe! Made it with my 8 year old grandson and he loved it. Nice banana flavor, super easy to make and the honey added just the right sweetness. Wonderful solution to those bananas sitting on your kitchen counter. Will definitely make this one again!

    Very Tasty. Kind of like a banana milk shake. The only change I made was adding a few frozen strawberries.

    Made these for breakfast & my son gives it a thumbs up! I liked that the honey & sweetness of the bananas made this smoothie sweet. We are trying to cut out as much sugar as possible & this was a winner.

    I used 1 1/4 cups of sugar to substitute the honey. Was lovely.
