    Followed recipe proportions but subbed fat free milk and fat free vanilla yogurt. Rich and smooth, very good before beginning outdoor work.

    I replaced milk with lite chocolate soy milk and eliminated the honey and nutmeg for a chocolate banana smoothie. It still needed something, but was good and filling. I'll make again.

    This is my fav smoothie. With a Tbs of unsweetened cocoa it's a better version of a Banana Vivanno smoothie. I think it tastes best with almond milk and w/o the honey. I make it at least three times a week.

    It was missing "something" so I added peanut butter. Also, I think it would have tasted better with cinnamon rather than nutmeg.

    Not my favorite smoothie. I notice that previous reviewers who rated this highly made major ingredient changes.

    Replaced a few items to make this a favorite. Substitute 1% milk for a lower fat option: fat free milk, chocolate soy or almond milk. Increase the 1/2 cup ice to 1 cup crushed ice. Replace the greek yogurt for 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter or omit both of these. Replace the nutmeg with cinnamon. Another version: 1 T honey, medium banana, 1/2 cup fat free milk, 1 cup crushed ice, 1/8 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa. That's a lot of replacements! Well, at least it got me to try it. Now I have added a smoothie to my healthy breakfast choices.

    Sometimes you just have to use what you have available. I made it with black cherry Greek yogurt, so skipped the honey and spice, adding a bit of cocoa as another poster suggested. Everything else the same, otherwise. It was tasty - a good base recipe to build on!

    I use 0% Fage, add one packet of Truvia and 4 sliced strawberries. It is very good and filling.
