Awards and Honey Bee!

Award time again!!
I am on cloud nine... Devi has bestowed me with 2 awards. Thanks Devi for sharing them with me. They mean a lot to me.

Rules for accepting this award:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award
2. Pass it on to your blogger friends.

I would like to share them with Supriya, Priya, Nupur,, Meena, Sushma, Swapna and Palatable. Please accept these awards.
Now coming to the recipe I am sharing today. Looking at the title have you thought, I will be writing about honey bees?
Then you have got it all wrong.. The other day, I chanced upon a book in the library, 'Juices and Smoothies Galore' by Susan Blake. The lovely cover caught my attention and when I fliped the pages, I loved it. I got it issued from the librarian and brought it home. I tried this recipe from the book. Only, I increased the quantity of icecream and honey to twice the quantity mentioned there as I have a sweet tooth and I have a weakness for icecreams!
This silky smooth drink is very satisfying and perfect for mid afternoon energy slump- the combination of bananas, honey and ice cream will perk you in no time. Honey is used here for sweetness, but it can be substituted with sugar in desired quantity. But then the name of this drink would change!

Here is the recipe for "Honey Bee".

Makes 2 tall glasses:


1 medium banana.
400 ml milk.
3 tbsp honey.
1 scoop vanilla ice cream.


Peel the bananas and chop them. Put them in a food blender with 150 ml milk and blend until smooth. Now, add the remaining milk with honey and ice cream and blend again. Pour into 2 glasses and serve immediately.
