You don't have a monkey around with lots of ingredients to blend together this cool beverage. It's smooth, creamy and gets its appealing tropical taste from bananas and orange juice concentrate.


  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, sliced 1/4 inch thick and frozen
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/3 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 to 3 drops yellow food coloring, optional


  1. In a blender, combine all ingredients. Cover and process for 45 seconds or until smooth. Stir if necessary. Pour into glasses and serve.
