Super refreshing breakfast drink that is so quick and satisfying. If you cannot find the pomegranate yogurt, try plain yogurt and add some pomegranate juice to it. Adding just a bit of splenda and honey takes away a little bit of the tart in the juices. Big pick me up.
I love the Chobani Greek Style flavored and plain yogurts. Check for them to go on sale and try them, they are great for smoothies!
For protein powder, I use APC Whey Protein powder in chocolate. This will not have a strong chocolate taste, just more of a hint of chocolate. Add the cocoa powder if you would like a little more chocolate flavor, I omit it in mine. Try this with any kind you have, or if you do not have any and do not wish to put protein powder in the smoothie, try this with Ovaltine or Carnation Instant Breakfast, or omit all together if you like.
