Subscribers of my free newsletter receive some of my best content, not all of which is found on my site, and in return I get great questions and suggestions. This recipe was sent to me by one of my subscribers, Christine. She and her daughter find this smoothie divine, and I agree. Thanks for the recipe, Christine!

Besides being mouthwatering, this smoothie is also high in protein, thus a great meal replacement or after workout replenishment.

If you’re looking for less sugar and more healthy fat like I often advocate (especially for weight loss), substitute 1/2 avocado for the banana. Another twist per Christine is to use ice cream instead of yogurt. The party has already begun in my mouth from thinking about that. Yes, you can purchase and make healthy ice cream. Here are a few healthy homemade ice cream recipes I love: Homemade Vanilla, Chocolate or Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
