We Colombians love fruit juices and in fact, we end almost all our meals with them. Jugos de fruta are very popular in Colombian restaurants and homes. My mom would make a pitcher of some sort of fruit juice every day for us when I was growing up. Some people prefer the juices made with water and some prefer them with milk, either way if you visit a Colombian home, they will offer you juice instead of soda, as that is part of our culture. This banana drink (Jugo de Banano) is one of my favorites. Try it!

2 ripe large bananas, peeled and cut into chunks
