This smoothie tastes like a rich , creamy dessert: it’s sweet and yummy. Even though it’s high in calories, it is also rich in protein, potassium, B-vitamins, fiber, calcium and iron. Next time your kid asks you for ice cream, give him/her this  smoothie instead. If they are asking for chocolate flavor, add 2 tbsp. of cocoa powder to the mix.
