Amy Palanjian
Use a very ripe banana with a lot of brown spots in this recipe for the best flavor.

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sliced very ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Add the ingredients to a blender.
  • Blend, starting on low and working up to high.
  • Serve immediately.


  • To store, stir in 1/2 teaspoon (or a few drops) of fresh lemon juice to help reduce browning and store in an airtight container for up to 24 hours.
  • Dairy-Free: Use your favorite nondairy milk. Omit the sweetener and vanilla if using another other than plain unsweetened.
  • Added-Sugar-Free: Make this without added sugars by just using the milk and banana. (It will taste best with a very ripe banana!)
  • Do half milk and half yogurt to make drinkable banana yogurt.
  • Add ice to make it more of a smoothie consistency.
