I wanted a banana smoothie but couldn't find a simple recipe for one online, so I made one myself! These banana smoothies are super easy and only require four, easy-to-find ingredients.

Step 1: Ingredients

All you need is:
1 banana
4-5 ice cubes
A little bit of milk
2 lids of vanilla extract

Machine:
Magic Bullet with Large Cup and Cross Blades

Step 2: Prep

The only real preparation is to peel the banana, cut off the tip, and slice it up.

Step 3: Combine

Put the cut bananas into the large Magic Bullet Cup. Put in the ice cubes and add milk until you can barely see the tips of the ice cubes. Now add about 2-3 lids of vanilla extract.

Step 4: Blending

Screw the cross blades onto the large cup. Plug in the magic bullet and blend for 30-45 seconds, or until it sounds smooth like all the ice has been crushed. If you think it's done, remove it and shake it a little to see if you can hear the ice moving around. If you hear alot of ice, continue to blend.

Step 5: Enjoy!

Now remove the cup from the magic bullet and unscrew the cross blades. Screw on a colored ring and enjoy! (You could just pour it into a regular cup if you want.)

    I made it> my only variation was that I added a teaspoon of honey and 3 tablespoons of sugar, a dash of cinnimon .and a few more ice cubes with one half cup mile. (I like it thick) it was good and it was filling. Love my Magic Bullet.
