The frozen banana in this shake creates an ice cream-like consistency. The walnuts get so finely ground by the blender that you don't even know they're in there...until you taste it! It's so yummy!

Ingredients:

2 medium very ripe Bananas, frozen
1 cup vanilla low-fat Yogurt
1/2 cup chopped California Walnuts
2-3 tablespoons Honey

Preparation:

Place bananas, yogurt, walnuts, and 2 tablespoons honey in a blender.

Blend on low speed until ingredients start to mix together. Then increase to high speed and blend until smooth. For a sweeter smoothie, add another tablespoon of honey.

Serve immediately.
