    * 2 cups canned Crushed Pineapple (I prefer the sugar free kind). You can also use sugar-free pineapple juice here, it will make the drink less-thick when it's done. Again, here
    i prefer the chunks as it's more fruit & fiber to my diet for the day)

    * 2 ripe medium Bananas, peeled & sliced

    * 2 cups Plain or Vanilla Yogurt

    * 1 cup fresh or frozen Strawberries

    * 1 tbsp. Vanilla extract

    Sorry, no I don't know what is a good substitute. My suggestion is just to try some different combinations until you find one that works for you.

    I haven't tried it with anything else, but I would think that extra strawberries or pineapple would work, or adding another fruit like blueberries, apples, or maybe kiwi would be good.
