This original recipe was made with a banana milk product that is no longer produced. So I have updated the recipe to just use regular milk. Also, I have made this with a banana protein drink and it turned out great as well. You could also add about a teaspoon of banana extract to the milk to get a stronger banana flavor.
Make sure your bananas are ripe. They should have brown spots on them. This will produce the best flavor.
