Recipes I've Shared:
Two ingredients that are uber-important in this recipe:
FROZEN banana - The frozen banana adds a milkshake-like texture to the smoothie. Room temperature banana+pumpkin puree = slimy smoothie.
Greek yogurt - The protein content of this smoothie comes from the nonfat Greek yogurt. Be aware that if you substitute regular yogurt you'll be cutting the protein content by 2/3.
A tasty, protein rich alternative to sweet iced coffee drinks.
You can play with your ingredients a bit. To cut the calorie count, use chocolate protein powder and omit the hot chocolate mix. Try different flavours of Toriani sugar free syrup!

My go-to breakfast. It's perfect for when you're craving something sweet and creamy. Yum!
The frozen banana adds a great creamy smoothness to the smoothie ... a fresh one just isn't the same. The cocoa powder adds a nice chocolatey kick but only adds 15 calories to the recipe total!
