Oh so delicious!

I thought this was sooo good! I used vanilla flavored Activia yogurt and one packet of Splenda and kept all the rest of the ingredients the same. However, next time I will leave out the Splenda. It doesn't need it at all. I felt energized and very full after one serving! What a great way to start my day.

Now this smoothie is much better than the citrus one with 77g of carbs. I personally use Greek yogurt because of the higher protein content that balances the carb to protein ratio. I also put one scoop or half a package of Advocare's chocolate or vanilla muscle gain shake to make full of nutrition. It makes a great pre-workout or post-workout shake. I drink about an hour before or within an hour after I work out and it gives me the nutrition I need for my sweat session.

I am not a big smoothie fan, but I love this one! I use orange/strawberry/banana juice instead of plain OJ. I also use Stevia instead of Splenda. For the yogurt I use all natural yogurt with no sugar or anything else added to it. -Laura MacPhee
