    Used 2 FROZEN b ananas (that I always keep in the freezer), passed on the honey .... don't need to have it that sweet .... passsed on the ice cubes because the bananas were frozen. Used 2% milk, organic peanut butter. YUMMY! A real pick-me-up summer beverage for the whole family. - 6/17/09

    Yumm! I used Simply Jif, fat free french vanilla yogurt, and light plain soy milk, I figured out the nutrition based on the specific brands I used and ended up with 30 more calories and 1.5 less grams of fat from what is listed. Next time I'll use reduced fat Jif so its even healthier. It was great - 7/1/08
