Ingredients:
2 cups skim milk
2 medium-size ripe bananas, cut into l-inch pieces
1/2 cup fat-free plain or *banana yogurt
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1/3 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 packets sweetener or 1/3-cup measurable sweetener of choice
Ground cinnamon (optional)

Directions

Process all ingredients, except cinnamon, in blender or food processor until smooth. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.

Recipe makes four (8-ounce) servings.

Notes: *For a more intense banana flavor, go with the banana yogurt. To mute the banana flavor a bit, use the plain yogurt.

The ground cinnamon is optional, but recommended. It pairs tastefully with the banana flavor and adds a healthy sweet spice taste.
