Low Cal Wednesday

I don't watch TV very often but the other day I saw Ellie Kreiger of the Food Network make this smoothie it looked so good I thought I would give it a try. I grew up on pies so these flavors reminded my of a real peach pie. The honey adds tons of sweetness but not allot of calories. I am sure kids would love this one, I will try it out on my grandson when he comes to stay in a few weeks. Very frothy and smooth. 2 cup portion is 240 calories.
