Today, I mixed and tasted my smoothie as I went to see what I could keep and what I could eliminate to test variations of smoothies. I changed this mornings ingredients slightly. I used unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 the yogurt and twice as much banana. This saved me approximately 20 calories and 10 grams carbs (for me = less sugar). This did effect the taste, but not enough to put me off. I enjoyed every bit. By taste testing as I added and blended ingredients, I was able to see what each ingredient contributed to the taste.
The nutritional breakdown for this morning smoothie:
