Banana Blast II Reviews

  • Very good recipe. I omitted a tbsp. of brown sugar, water and ice, added a snack size container of vanilla pudding, and used 2 fozen bananas. Excellent.

  • Used skim milk and left out the water; pretty tasty and refreshing. Simple to prepare. Also, added a little bit of cinnamon.

  • Quite good...debated 3 or 4 stars. Nice and smooth and creamy, but a bit too watery for me. Might substitute milk for the water or use a cube or two less ice. Of course you could half this recipe. Try using honey instead of brown sugar or adding a pinch of your favorite spice. Also, check out the Banana Anna recipe on this site - both are great.

  • I made this for my 6 year old daughter. She really liked it. There was some left over so I gave it a taste even though I dont like bannanas. I am glad I did. This was one of the best smoothies I have ever tasted. The texture is perfect. Cant wait to make this for my husband. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  • This is soo good. I only made one serving, but I used a whole banana. I didnt use quite a tablespoon of milk either. Yum

  • This was very good Add some vanilla

  • Good taste and easy to make. Kids enjoyed this drink. Thanks for easy recipe.

  • Thanks so much I had strep throat and without being able to eat anything for a few days I thought I was going to die The only difference was I left the water out. Thanks so much, again

  • Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum So good Didnt change a thing.

  • Very Good I loved it though I thought i could have used more banana.

  • This is a great banana smoothie. Other than adding extra banana for a stronger taste, the recipe is great as is.

  • Pretty good. Next time I make it, Im going to add an extra banana for extra flavor.

  • Was pretty good. I used a touch less sugar and substituted a nectarine for one of the bananas.

  • Im going to give this a five because it looks delicious I havent tried it yet but I will. Hey, my name is Danielle too


  • Was alright. My husband and son didnt care for it at all. I think it needed another banana.

  • YUMMY & EASY Now I wont get the "stare" when I have a banana ;) Thanks Danielle

  • This smoothie was absolutely delicious One of the best ones Ive tasted from allrecipes.comI doubled the amount of ice cubes (my freezer pre-makes them so theyre a tad small) so the drink was more to my kind of consistency--thick. Next time Ill probably add another banana to add a little more flavour, but all around I loved this smoothie It doesnt require a range of fruits, just bananas, which is great because I dont have the money to buy berries all the time. :) I definitely recommend this recipe to any banana lovers.

  • This was pretty good, but I had to add an additional banana and 1t of vanilla for personal preference. Not too intense. Not too sweet. Thanks a bunch, Danielle.

  • Absolutely Delicious This is a very cool, refreshing beverage. Perfect for breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up.

  • This smoothie was really good, but a little sweet. It was easy to make and easy to clean up.

  • Ive have been loving the smoothies lately and this one is great Great for summer YUM

  • I didnt think I would like this one because I dont love bananas but it was actually really good. I would make it again.

  • I had so many bananas that all got ripe at the same time, i didnt know what to do with, I tried this recipe and with in 1 day all bananas was gone, this is one GREAT recipe and my 2 twins are so picky...but they went crazy with this.. thanks so much for a wonderful recipe...

  • I just made it cuz i felt like a cool smoothie and all i had was bananas. so imade this and it was great tasting and i loved it i used a little less sugar tho, but thats just my thing. im gonna make it for my friends and family sometime soon :)

  • Very good My 1 year old liked it too

  • Very good banana taste Quick and easy to make

  • Yummy

  • I added 1/4 tsp. vanilla and realized after blending the banana and milk that my husband forgot to refill the ice trays so, needless to say, we were out of ice. It had a wonderful flavor, but was more like lumpy banana milk than a smoothie. Was delicious though. Will definately try it again, but with ice :)

  • I really liked how quick and good this recipe is...I think the next time I make I will add one more banana for more banana flavor.

  • Delicious and a great way to get in your potassium My son loves it and he is very picky. We make it all the time now It is refreshing on a hot day.

  • Really good. Just enough sweet and a really nice consistency. Perfect for when youre craving a shake.....yummy healthier substitute.

  • I had 2 ripe bananas I needed to use up and found this recipe. It was awesome. I added a dash of vanilla extract but may try almond next time to switch it up. If you add extract, you could probably decrease the sugar a bit.

  • Kids loved this

  • Hubs and I really enjoyed this, although I didnt understand the need for the water - except as a springboard toward ideas for substitutes. I think it would be kind of flat if prepared as is, so I replaced the water with orange juice. We found the drink lightly sweet and refreshing - I especially liked the addition of brown sugar rather than white. However, Im really curious, now, to try replacing the water with Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur. Or Godiva Chocolate Liqueur - -or Baileys, Chambord, Frangelico, or even banana liqueur The possibilities are endless and all sound delicious.

  • Pretty darn good i needed a quick recipe for the ripe bananas i didnt want to throw away and this was perfect. i only used a splash of water and added a touch of cinnamon and vanilla. yum

  • Mmmm....I always keep bananas in the freezer,Just stick em in when they get too ripe. Peel them when you are ready to use in a recipe. I left out the water like everyone else, but had to blend for a really long time, due to the frozen banana, couldve put in a splash more skim milk, but didnt want to dilute the banana taste. Now I have an ice cream headache from drinking it.

  • Sweeeet

  • Excellent recipe I omitted the brown sugar in order to cut down on how much sugar was in the smoothie. Be conservative with the ice or it may get too watery. I added an extra banana and it has a real strong banana flavor, but it is DELICIOUS It is very healthy too, without any yogurt. Just banana, milk, water, and ice Would have never thought that would come out so good.

  • Perfect texture. I used all milk instead of water. It was kind of boring though.

  • Delicious Followed the recipe exactly and loved it. Really sweet and yummy.

  • THIS WAS VERY GOOD I OMITTED THE WATER AND ADDED A SMIDGE OF CLOVE , MY PICKY husband liked it and i added pinapple to mine and i loved itthanks for the recipe...

  • SOOO YUMMY Made this just for me and used 1 banana, 3 ice cubes, 1/3 cup of milk, teaspoon and a half of brown sugar, and a pinch of cinnamon. Topped it off with whipped cream Delicious = D

  • This is a great low cal cold treat. It tastes great and kids love it.

  • Really goodUsually when I make smoothies.they end up tasting horrible.I didnt have high hopes for this one.When I made this,I was glad I did.It tasted like perfectionI didnt put the 2 tablespoons of water because,I was going to put in ice cubes anyways.The only problem is,it gave me a sour taste while drinking it.Probably because of the brown sugar.Anyways,BEST SMOOTHIE EVER

  • So easy and very good

  • This was ok, I used skim milk and omitted the water. Next time Ill chill or freeze my bananas first, the room temp. banana made the smoothie kind of warm. Couldve been a wee bit sweeter but that probably all depends on how ripe your bananas are.

  • I didnt find this recipe to be anything special really... kinda like banana milk... tasted good though... i garnished mine with a little cinnamon and nutmeg for an added zip...

  • Made as is (which is how I rate - instead of changing the entire recipe then rating the new recipe) it is exactly what it seems. A perfectly adequate quick simple thin smoothie that kids will drink because it is cold and reminds them of a milk shake. It is also a perfect BASE for an excellent smoothie. Vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, yogurt, and other fruit all kick this up a notch. You and/or the kids can have fun experimenting and seeing what does what when added or removed.

  • Its fast, easy, simple/few ingredients and my kids and I loved it Nutritious as well

  • I made completely as is and yum Tasty It was the perfect amount of brown sugar in combination with the banana. Didnt feel like it needed anything else.

  • Quick, easy and super good Left out the water as everyone suggested and replaced with milk. Great

  • This recipe has a very mellow, smooth taste, the banana is just right, not too strong or too weak. It is also very refreshing.

  • Very good, creamy and nice taste I made this for my son and his friend and wasnt sure what theyd think...they both liked it a lot.

  • While I was adding the last 3 indgredients, I also added a 1/4 tsp of vanilla and a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. I am going to reduce the 1/4 tsp of cinnamon next time to just a pinch because it was a bit overpowering. I am wondering if honey would be good instead of cinnamonn and might try that next time. I didnt use the full 1/4 cup of water either, since I used skim milk. I used about an 1/8 cup instead.

  • Good Smoothie I made it for the kids and it was a hit. I liked the hint of brown sugar.

  • This is great. If you rub lemon on the bananas and put in the freezer you dont need ice and it is very thick. I also added a little vanilla.

  • GREAT recipe. i added a little vanilla, and a little cinnamon, but i didnt add water because i didnt see the need too. made it when i had a sore throat and it helped me ALOT

  • This was an overall delicious smoothie. It was a little watery due to the amount of water listed in the recipe. Other than that, it had the perfect amount of sweetness. It was very simple to make and my family enjoyed the drink as well.

  • I really enjoyed this but it got much better after adding a scoop or so of vanilla ice cream

  • Good Great way to use up bananas that are starting to brown that the kids wont eat. While I love baked banana goods, I wanted something fast and easy as I cannot always bake and would prefer to avoid too many baked goods. This is fast and low-fat and the kids like it.

  • This was really good with a few changes. Used 1 banana, eliminated the water and ice cubes (my banana was frozen), added 1 teaspoon vanilla and a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg in addition to the brown sugar and milk. Tasted like a milkshake minus the ice cream

  • Just made and it was delicious I emitted water, added 6 ice cubes, and used 1%milk. I added a dash of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla. I only had 2 banannas on hand but probaly would of added a 3rd or maybe some yogurt to make a tad thicker. I topped my 7yr olds with whipped cream and he chugged his down. He said "why havent you made this for me before" It made 2 large glasses so id def double recipe if making for more than 2 people.

  • This is really good. It tastes more like a milkshake than a smoothie. Definitely more of a dessert than a breakfast drink.

  • I wish they would repost this recipe without the water. Usually the goal is to have a thicker drink, not water it down. We added 1/4 cup of blueberries, 2 TBSP flax seed and a scoop of protein. Yum

  • After I started to make this, I realized I had made similar recipes from on here before. I usually, just use a pack of Truvia, but decided to try the brown sugar to see if there was a difference. I honestly, thought the Truvia gave it a sweeter taste. I noticed at least one of the reviews saying this was watered down. So, I didnt add the water in the recipe. I have never heard of water in a smoothies like drink anyhow. Either way, it still turned out about the consistency of a slightly thick milk. It wasnt bad, just not one of my favorites.

  • I made this leaving out the water. Instead, I added a touch of vanilla and plain yogurt. Cut the ice to 6 cubes and garnished with a Hersheys kiss on top. Read good I may pop some frozen blueberries into a future batch.

  • Really good, and really easy Very like a milkshake- only healthier I did add around a half tablespoon of vanilla..

  • This was not very good it was to watery it tastes like someone took a chopped up banana and water and mixed it watery.and it was a wast of engridence

  • I had a banana smoothie at a French bistro this passed weekend and it was sooo delish that I wanted to make it at home. The banana flavor was perfect, a subtle sweetness in it was great I stumbled upon this and wow it was right on the dot It made me two large glasses, my boyfriend loves it too =)

  • Fantastic Can maybe add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to thicken it up a little. Yummy as is A pinch of cinammon is an idea as well.

  • Pretty good Not the best but not the worst

  • Very good smoothie. At first I made it exactly to the recipe (except I halfed it), and it was very good. However now Ive modified it to 2 tablespoons honey instead of 1 tablespoon brown sugar , and omitted the water and one ice cube. Now its FABULOUS

  • Next time, Ill use less ice and less milk. The drink was very watered down, and there wasnt much flavour. Next, I will use some vanilla pudding and perhaps some nutmeg.

  • Simple and delicious I cut the water and added two tablespoons of peanut butter to thicken it, and because I love peanut butter

  • This truly sounds like an explosion when I made it The ingredients got so noisy in my blender that my maid came out to see what was happeningXD

  • This was really good I only used a banana and a half. Same amount of milk, water and ice, but I only used a tablespoon of brown sugar. I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon and that made a difference.I actually hate bananas, bit this was great

  • It is a stretch to say this makes 4 servings. I used soy milk and doubled the banana; it had a good consistency and mild but tasty flavor.

  • Very good, but needed more flavor

  • This was pretty good. I did find some of the other reveiws helpful so I did change a few things. I did not add the water and also added some vanilla. Also added a few more ice cubes. I think next time I will use soy milk. Thanks for the recipe

  • The water isnt really needed. I did add a little nutmeg. Tasted like banana bread. We drank one batch down and instantly made another.


  • Next time, ill be putting more ice in it. It wasnt smoothie enough. A little liquidy.

  • Great recipe, which is extremely quick and easy. Its also fairly filling too, so if youre in a hurry in the morning, just make one of these shakes and youre good to go. Delicious

  • This recipe is a good base for banana smoothies. I used the following:2 bananas (overripe; dont use it)1 cup of low-fat milk1 tbsp of honey (orange flavor)6 cubes of iceDont use overripe bananas because they add a hint of sourness to the smoothie. To make it sweeter, use 2 tablespoons of honey.

  • My kids loved it and I cant even get them to eat fruit.

  • This was so good Next time I may use a bit more brown sugar because all I tasted was the banana

  • The whole family liked this... and very easy to make. I will make it again (my mouth is watering right now)

  • Loved it

  • Yummy

  • IT was pretty good but a bit too bland. I used less Ice and substituted the water.

  • Great quick breakfast drink i forgot to add the water, but I did add a bunch of crushed ice. Tasted great

  • I loved it, I would definitely make it again

  • Perfect will make again Thanks for the recipe

  • I used 2 frozen bananas and no ice cubes. It was SO delicious

  • So I made it for me and my sister for lunch and neither of us really like it at all. We followed the recipe just as it said to. very hopeful that it was going to taste good and it didnt .

  • This is very good... I added a banana like everyone said and also added 1 cup of fresh sugared strawberries. I got RAVE reviews

  • Very good I ended up using a handful of frozen strawberries instead of the ice cubes and it came out perfect. Thanks

  • Delicious :-)
