This was originally a “smoothie”, but with the lack of berries and solid ingredients, it usually comes out to the consistency of a thick milkshake. You can, of course, adjust the thickness by adding or reducing the amount of milk. Also, more yogurt can be used to thicken the consistency if you prefer the smoothie consistency.
Usually I split this with Gotspark, in which he has a big glass and I have a little one. If you’re a guy and/or have higher caloric needs, this could easily be one serving. However, if you’re “watching” like me, this is probably best shared with someone else.
