Place all ingredients in a powerful blender and blend until smooth. If it's too thick, add a little more milk. If it's too thin, add more ice.
Ingredient substitution ideas:
Use any milk you like - I use fresh whole milk. Almond milk, low fat, anything works.If you want to avoid all milks, you can use fruit juice. It does make a bit of a different smoothie and I usually leave out the cocoa if I opt for the fruit juice. Pineapple or orange tastes best in my opinion.If you don't want to add yogurt, leave it out and add extra milk. Throw in a few extra ice cubes to make up for the creaminess.
This makes two medium smoothie or one large smoothie. If you want to halve the recipe, only do it if you have a small blender. The halved recipe does NOT work in a large blender like a Vitamix!
