The August 2011
Recipe of the Month


Chocolate Banana Frappe


Here is just the thing for a hot summer's day or even evening. It is easy to make and very refreshing. Note that you will make this recipe as single servings, due to the need for a lot of things in the blender. We thank Heather P. for this chilled frothy drink.




  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup chocolate ice cream
  • 1 ounce chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 5 ounces club soda, chilled
  • 1 cup crushed ice


  1. Combine all ingredients (including the club soda) in a blender.
  2. Mix slowly at first, then blend well.
  3. Serve in a tall glass, with a straw or a long spoon.


A delicious way to cool of and relax.
