One of our favorite combinations is vanilla yogurt, with strawberries, frozen bananas, OJ and pineapple. A squeeze of honey goes in, to add a touch of sweetness. I've yet to be able to sneak in some wheat germ, which I've wanted to try. I am determined to try the addition in the future. Cold, creamy and slightly sweet. Perfect for a quick breakfast, or a mid day snack.
Tropical Fruit Smoothies
Adapted from Disney's Magic Kitchen Cookbook
1 medium banana, peeled
1 1/2 C cut-up fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, papaya, or kiwi
1 6-to-8 oz carton vanilla low fat yogurt
3/4 C fat free milk
Honey (if you like)
Fresh fruit (if you like)
Put banana, cut-up fruit, yogurt, milk and honey (if desired) in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until mixture is smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Pour into tall glasses and top with additional fresh fruit.
Makes 4 servings
Cindy's notes: We really love to use frozen blueberries and sometimes orange juice, rather than milk
