    Yum! What is in the banana chocolate smoothie, if I may ask?

    Where is the recipe for the chocolate banana smoothie with coconut? I’d love to make that.

    I love your “end of the week treats” what a great idea!!!

  4. @ Andrea and Alison….yes that smoothie is so tasty! 4oz low-fat or fat-free chocolate milk or 4oz plain low-fat or fat-free milk with 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder, plus 2 oz plain low-fat Greek yogurt, few banana slices (whip all that together) and top with sprinkle of shredded coconut and a few dark chocolate chips. That is the 150 calorie version.
