Banana Smoothie

I don't have a picture, but I'm sure everyone knows what a smoothie looks like.  This one is sugar-free if you don't count the yogurt (and I don't, because I mean, come on, it's yogurt).  Originally I believe this was a Weight Watchers recipe.  I like the yogurt in it, but some Cool Whip (not the stuff in a can) is good too.  I use this as a substitution when I have an ice cream craving and don't want to go to the store.  This is a great way to use up bananas when you don't feel like putting the effort into baking.  The only downside is that you have to clean the blender afterward.  I don't like to clean the blender.

Banana Smoothie

2 bananas
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1 packet Splenda (or you could use a bit of sugar)
1/4 cup (or so) skim milk
1 t. vanilla
8 ice cubes

Break the bananas into pieces and throw them into the blender.  Add yogurt, Splenda, milk, and vanilla and blend until smooth.  Then add the ice and blend until it's smooth again.  This is enough for 2 people.
