Banana Milk Drink

When money was short and times were tough, my mother still made this banana milk drink for us. We thought it was happiness in a glass. I recall running home from school, hoping to find this delicious drink ready for me. I made it often for my own children, and I still mix it up today...but now I like to call it nostalgia in a glass. —Jeanne Brown, Buffalo, New York

    I added 1/4 - 1/2 cup frozen raspberry, a hand full of ice and used 2 packs of Splenda instead of sugar.
