About this recipe: Just four ingredients stand between you and this delicious fruit smoothie. Banana is liquidised with milk, coconut cream and ice cubes. It's the perfect summer drink to be enjoyed all year long.
I increased this recipe to serve three. I did NOT have coconut cream but I did have coconut extract--I used a tablespoon of that. My bananas were frozen which eliminated the need for ice. What's great about this drink is it gets really frothy which makes you think you're drinking bananas and coconut that have been folded into whipped topping. We were divided on this smoothie. The youngest and I really liked it but my oldest did not. I'll make this again, if just for me. - 07 Mar 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow, this tasted soo good! I went to make it and realized the calories seemed really high though. I ended up buying lite coconut cream and using low-fat milk, and getting 2 servings instead of 1. That helped the calorie count some. However, the sugar and saturated fat count is still a kind of high from the coconut milk, even though there is no added sugar in the recipe. I did not know that about coconut milk. The drink doesn't get real thick, but the taste is awesome anyway! I used 5 ice cubes as it did not indicated how many to use. I did enjoy it though. ty - 04 Mar 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My coconut cream wasn't sweetened, so I added a bit of honey. Fantastic! - 30 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
