Do you have a good replacement for the banana? My husband is both mildly allergic and can't stand the taste/smell, but he loooooves frappuccinos, so I'd like to ween him off. ;)

hahaha I love the quote about Jillian!!! and super psyched to try this out... I probably won't add ice though, just use pre-chilled coffee - I like my smoothies really thick!
