Smoothie Goodness

I've really been craving ice cream and chocolate, but I've given them up as part of my quest to live a healthier life...well I gave up the ice cream, I mean what sane person would give up chocolate. So I was surfing between my burst of house cleaning and I found some cool recipes to try and thought I'd share them in case anyone else has a hankering for a smoothie.
Here's the first.
Strawberry Smoothie
* 8 strawberries, hulled
* 1/2 cup skim milk
* 1/2 cup plain yogurt
* 3 tablespoons white sugar
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 6 cubes ice, crushed

Blend together and enjoy!

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

* 1 banana
* 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
* 1 cup milk
* 1 cup crushed ice

Blend and enjoy!

Last but not least

Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie
* 2 bananas, frozen and chunked
* 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
* 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
* 1 cup plain yogurt

Blend and enjoy!
