Chocolate Bananna Milkshake

I used to make banana milk shakes for my lunch when I was trying to loose weight all the time. They are really good to me and it counts for 1 serving of milk and 1 or 2 servings of fruit depending on the size of banana that I use. But a few weeks ago I was reading an article in Prevention magazine about the importance of fiber in the diet and one of their suggestions was to put a tablespoon of baking cocoa powder in smoothies to increase the fiber content. I looked on my can of baking cocoa and sure enough it is true. One tablespoon of cocoa has 2 grams of fiber.
I love chocolate so I decided to give it a try. It taste great to me. Here is how I do it: I put one banana in my blender, add one cup of skim milk, one teaspoon vanilla flavoring, two packets of artificial sweetener and one tablespoon of baking cocoa powder. I start that to blending and then add a cup of ice cubes one cube at a time. It comes out nice and thick and very cold.
There were quite a few tips for getting more fiber in your diet. I am going to try them and let you know what I think about them in later posts.
