The first time I made this Banana Julius, it was too sweet. In this recipe, I made the sugar optional. I know some people do not prefer sugar in their food. The orange juice is naturally sweet, and so the sugar to this recipe can definitely be reduced, and in some cases omitted. I think a little sugar is needed for flavor so I have listed it as an ingredient. The level of sweetness is totally up to the cook.
I got a thumbs up from Nicole so this recipe is kid approved. When I tasted it, I think the orange juice over powered the banana flavor. I could not taste any banana. If there is any banana flavor, it's very mild. The cinnamon I added on top had the most flavor. Cinnamon is great for weight loss, lowering blood pressure, and is said to prevent arthritis and type 2 diabetes. So add the cinnamon on top, stay healthy and drink up. This recipe tastes great and is good for you. Cheers everyone!
