    These were so good! My husband asked to make them every Saturday morning.

    We use this kind of basic CL recipe for portion/calorie control. Great way to handle over-ripe, superflavorful bananas, just slice & freeze. Used fat-free vanilla yogurt and omitted additional vanilla, otherwise made to direction. Pretty good.

    I have been using this as a post-workout recovery drink. It is delicious and it gives my body all the nutrients it needs right after a tough workout.

    No graham cracker flavor. Tasted like a plain banana smoothie. Added strawberries afterwards to salvage it. Would not make again.

    Made a few tweaks, but really enjoyed the result! We didn't have any vanilla yogurt, so I subbed 1/2 cup greek yogurt and a little extra vanilla & some agave nectar. I also added 1T of ground flax seeds because I add them to all my smoothies. Really tasty!

    I love this recipe! I use it as a great refueling smoothie after my intensive runs or long workouts.

    Surprised this got such great reviews (although I really expected to like it). Made it exactly as written, with high quality ingredients. Too yogurty for me (and I like yogurt) and also sort of icy and not thick enough. So many other smoothies I like so much better. Won't make this one again.

    I thought they were great! My husband wasn't that impressed but he said he didn't just love bananas. So if you love bananas like me than you'll love it! I will make these again!

    I'm glad I found this recipe. I liked it when I followed the recipe as written, but the second time I added some ground cinnamon so the banana flavor wouldn't be so overpowering, and I LOVED it!

    I think I'll just eat the banana, eat the yogurt, drink the milk (with honey) and skip the rest.

    I thought it was really good, plus I just happened to have all the ingredients (except the dry milk, which I just replaced with regular milk).

    I really liked this, though I changed it up a bit--instead of ice cubes I froze half the yogurt (dairy free coconut milk yogurt) in an ice cube tray; I used So Delicious Unsweetened original coconut milk beverage in place of the milk, which I decreased to 1/4 c. I left out the dry milk powder and the graham cracker and added a tablespoon of natural peanut butter. Decreasing the liquid makes it thicker, as does freezing some of the yogurt. Also, there is no law stating that you can't taste something before it is served...if it isn't sweet enough, add some agave, honey, sugar...whatever. By the way my changes are made due to other reviews (too thin) and dairy and gluten allergies.

    I was so excited to try this, but really disappointed with the result. Really tart and acidic, too icy, and really thin. My husband did not approve either.
