"This was so good and easy I've already made it twice. A single recipe doesn't make much, so I doubled it the second time."

"This was really good. It made enough for my small family to eat. I used two bananas because I thought the orange juice would overpower the flavor of the banana. It did not, it was the perfect compliment to the flavor. I will make this again, it was so easy. Thanks for a good recipe."
