The recipe calls for a frozen banana and I'm allergic to raw bananas so I used 1/2 C. of plain soy yogurt. Since I didn't have that extra frozen fruit in mine it was just more like a breakfast drink. I used frozen mangoes and orange juice and had to add a little stevia since I didn't have the sweetness of the banana. It reminded me of an Orange Julius drink I used to get when I was a kid. I'll have to make it thicker next time.
