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. Read More

Better to add agave nectar than sugar. It's straight from the plant and you need less as it's more sweet. Read More

I have been making this recipe for myself and my kids minus the added sweetner and with nonfat yogurt. I also add in fresh spinach which adds more nutrients and my kids can't even taste the difference. Also mix it up with 100% juice cranberry or pineapple juice for variety. Read More

I have been making a version of this also but I use nonfat plain yogurt a banana frozen fruit and a splash of diet peach green tea (like Snapple or Lipton). I use a fresh banana if they are not too ripe for me (but I also freeze bananas if I have too many before they get too ripe). That way I always have them available and no longer waste them by throwing them out! I adjust the amount of liquid depending on whether I am using all frozen fruit or fresh. I don't add additional sweetner but if I did I would probably choose Splenda. Great way to get a few servings of fruit and satisfies my sweet tooth but very low-calorie! Read More

I to like many others here make a similar smoothie on the weekend using 1 fresh banana or 1 frozen slightly defrosted banana 2 tbs peanut butter soymilk frozen fruit/berries ground flaxseed cereal or oatmeal(depending on what I have and if I have it 1-2 tbs of plain greek yogurt. If it needs thinning then I'll add apple juice. This smoothie is often split into 2-3 portions. Its pretty so I'm not inclined to need a snack and as I usually am fairly busy on weekends a larger portion lasts until mid-afternoon if necessary. Read More

Not Diabetic friendly How is added sugar good for diabetes... and orange juice that is full of sugar plus berries have a natural sugar in them. I substituted orange juice for cooled green tea added no extra sugar as berries were sweet enough... next time I'll add some plain greek yoghurt to try something different... Read More
