Chocolate Banana Icee

I enjoy this icee as a quick breakfast or as a quick afternoon pick-me-up!  It's also good with other fruits, such as strawberries, raspberries, or peaches.  I've heard it's good with a little peanut butter added, too, but I haven't tried that. Oh, and it's low-fat, nutritious, and a great substitute for an ice-cream craving.

Chocolate Banana Icee
1 cup ice
1 cup low-fat milk
1/2 banana, broken into chunks
2 T. Hershey's chocolate syrup

Place all ingredients in blender.  Blend until ice is finely chopped and mixture becomes thick.  Pour into a big glass and enjoy slowly (too fast and you'll get brain freeze -- ouch!).  This recipe can be easily doubled if you'd like to use a whole banana.


  1. We love smoothies--and this one looks almost like a milk shake! It uses ingredients we usually have on hand as well, so I'm excited to try it. The best blender we've ever had just died (it was covered by warranty but we haven't replaced it yet--we just got a refund for now) so we'll have to see if our inexpensive little blender can handle the job!

  2. Best blender ever... and from my favorite store!
