Breana asks: What do you put in your smoothie?

Dates have more antioxidants then berries and more potassium than bananas. They sweeten and compliment every other flavor. Only 20 calories per date.

Well I usually put in chunks of banana, low-fat yogurt, and unsweetened cocoa powder. It tastes delicious.

I urge everyone to use frozen fruit - no need to add ice and especially frzn bananas are good. My favorite is banana, cherries & milk, just a drop of vanilla.

Greek yogurt, because it ups the protein. Choice of berries, banana, pineapple, mango. Apple juice or milk.
