Skinny Chocolate Banana Smoothie

Skinny Chocolate Banana Smoothie

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons sugar-free hot chocolate mix
  • 1/2 cup non-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup decaffeinated coffee
  • 1 banana
  • 1 packet sugar substitute
I'm mostly prone to alternative rock, but I went through a phase of serious country music appreciation in college. About that time, Clint Black had a huge hit with a song called "A Better Man" which I absolutely loved. So, I knew I liked his music. What would I think of his smoothie?

I found this recipe at the Hollywood, CA public library while thumbing through out-of-print cookbooks. It's from a great collection titled The Sinatra Celebrity Cookbook. In the future, I may test and post other recipes from the book (Gregory Peck's Happy Pappy Eggs anyone?), but for now, let's concentrate on Clint Black's smoothie.

I used this drink to replace my morning coffee (I used regular joe) and had it with a broiled grapefruit. I found it very tasty. It's a smoothie that has a mocha shake feeling even with the low-fat ingredients. Bottom line: I'm leaving here (the breakfast table) a better man.* Thanks Clint!

It's even better if you replace the milk with low-fat vanilla yogurt.
