10 Guilt-Free Recipes from The Skinny
When what we really want for breakfast is cookies, sometimes we double the maple syrup in this recipe. But on more normal days, we like this au naturel, without any sweetening, letting the fruity flavors of the kiwi and bananas shine. If you hate or don't have kiwis on hand, you can substitute 1/2 cup of other fruits, such as berries, peaches, or plums.Banana and Kiwi Smoothie
