This protein-packed variation on a Latin American banana smoothie boasts 4 grams of fiber, and it's simple to make. Thanks to the magic of frozen bananas, this licuado tastes more like a milkshake than a healthy banana smoothie. Plus, with the natural sweetness of very ripe bananas, there’s no need to add sugar!
Active time: 5 minutes
2very ripe bananas
2Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg(s)
1 cskim milk
Peel bananas and place in freezer bag, separating each banana with wax paper.
Freeze overnight (bananas can be stored in freezer for up to one month)
Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth.
Pour into glasses and sprinkle with additional cinnamon. Add cinnamon stick if desired.
Depending on the size of the bananas, you may have to add an extra splash of milk. If the mix seems too thick to blend, you can also stop the blender and stir with a spoon to help the process. It’s worth the extra work of stirring… the thicker and more frozen the licuado, the more delicious it will be!
Soy smoothie: Substitute light soy milk (vanilla or plain)
Chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie: Give this banana smoothie the Elvis twist by skipping the cinnamon and adding 1/3 c peanut butter and 1/3 c chocolate syrup.

This is absolutely amazing! You don't need to add additional cinnamon on top unless you are doing it for garnish purposes. It is sooo delicious, quick, easy and healthy!!! Do yourself a favor and start freezing those bananas!!! Enjoy!

I decided to add a handful of uncooked Old Fashioned Quaker Oats as well. I have one for breakfast and it keeps me full all morning.

I just made this -- unbelievably good especially considering how simple it is to make. It's decadent tasting but everything in it is really good for you.
