Creamy and thick. My kids loved the "yogurt drink" as they called it. It is quite filling so I halved the recipe and then divided it up between the 3 kids. They were all slurping the bottom of the cup with their straws and asking if they can have one tomorrow too! Read More

Maybe the trick to making this drinkable is using flavored yogurt. I made this following the recipe and the only flavor I could taste was the nasty sour/tart flavor of the lemon juice and plain yogurt. Not good not even a little. Read More

I think it's important that you realize it's going to have a strong yogurt taste as that is a key ingredient to this shake. It's more smoothie-like to me but I still think it's good. I've played around with this recipe and found that the best variation for our tastes is: 2 bananas (we love 'em in this family) 1 cup milk 1 cup yogurt and 4 TBSP sugar. It is perfectly sweet and tart- like a banana smoothie/shake should be. I omitted the lemon juice simply because I was out haha. Anyways I think it's a great recipe that can be varied using whatever fruit you happen to love and still be completely tasty and good for you! 5 stars from me and my family!:) Read More

I used some frozen mashed banana that I had in my freezer skim milk and fat free yogurt. I didn't put the whipped cream on the top and it still tasted great! Next time I may try honey in place of the sugar. Read More

This is the exact recipe i was looking for. I didn't use lemon juice. I used Splenda instead of sugar. I also used one whole banana and halved the rest of the ingredients for one serving that was a little thicker than orginal recipe. update- I threw in three strawberries and used a small banana. It tasted great. Read More
