...I don't like bananas? Try subbing mango - you'll get a similar consistency with the same fiber benefits.
...I'm not into strawberries? That's ok, give blueberries a try!
...I can't have almond milk? Any kind will do; use your favorite, or just use water for a thinner consistency.
...I prefer chocolate? No problem! You can click here for Chocolate Nice Cream!
