Banana Juice With Pistachios and Honey

This recipe has been published on Allrecipes.com!

My husband served this to me the first time I ever visited his house when we started dating. He doesn't really know how to cook, but this recipe is one thing he makes well. Of course, it only has 4 ingredients so it's a little hard to mess up. You can serve it with or without ice cream, or cut the recipe in half and make one serving in your magic bullet. I find it easier to clean than the blender. If you're adding ice cream and you're on Weight Watchers, remember to add the points. I'm only including the value for the juice.

You can also put your bananas in the fridge ahead of time if you want your drink super cold, but we usually just use them at room temperature.

Now, when I enter the info in the recipe builder, it comes to 8 PointsPlus per serving. That's a bit much don't you think? If you remove the bananas from the calculation (because bananas are supposed to be free), it works out to 5 per serving. I'll leave it up to you to track however you want.

I posted another version of this recipe last year and called it a smoothie. It's really the same recipe but it uses 2 bananas for one serving, which makes it nice and thick.

V To make this vegan, replace milk with non-dairy milk and replace honey with maple syrup.

2 ripe bananas
2 cups 2% milk
2 tablespoons pistachios
1 tablespoon honey

Place all the ingredients in a blender and let it go until smooth. Divide into 2 glasses. That is all.
