Banana Granola Parfait Smoothie

Having Insulin Resistance And having to check my blood sugar before and after a workout as well as other times during the day, I always need to have something to eat or drink with me. I need to have food with protein, carbs, and some fat in every meal. So instead of having to transport all my ingredients individually for a granola parfait with me when I go for a workout, I now put them all in my Vitamix and make a smoothie to take with me instead. This is also a great breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack

1 Banana
1 Cup Plain Fat Free rbG Hormone Free Yogurt or Plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1/4 Cup Light Vanilla Soymilk
1/2 TSP Ground Cinnamon
1 TBSP Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup
1/4 Cup Low Fat Granola With No More Then 4 Grams of Sugar
1 Hershey's Kiss
5-6 Ice Cubes
Blender or Vitamix
1/8 TSP Freshly Grated Nutmeg

Assemble all ingredients in the order listed above, blend and top with 1/8 TSP Freshly Grated Nutmeg

All Ready To Blend in my Vitamix

  1. If you take it with you - how do you keep it cold?

    1. I pour this into a shake container with a lid and then put it into my cooler with ice pack.
