Not a fan of soy milk but I have some 40 Calorie Almond milk on hand that I might try. For protein could you sub in greek yogurt? And because the sugars are fruit sugars, isn't that "ok"?

ditto, there is far too much glucose in this smoothie. I would probably make this for a light dessert drink at lunch.
