This combo is one of my favourites, super creamy with a slight tang.
- 1⁄2 cup orange juice
- 200 g lowfat blueberry frozen yogurt
- 3⁄4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen) or 3⁄4 cup strawberry (fresh or frozen)
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
This is a very refreshing, fruity smoothie with a lovely consistency. Mine came out very thick and yummy. But somehow there was something missing for me tastewise -maybe some cinnamon or a little maple syrup...This is a great base for experimenting and adding different things, though. Thanks for sharing this wonderful treat with us, Mandy! Made and reviewed for June Bevy Tag 09.
5 Stars, the orange juice is the perfect counterpoint to the blueberries and the blueberries-n-cream low-fat Green's Ice Cream I used, it sets the taste. I used 1/4 cup additional blueberries to offset the "cream" in the ice cream I had to buy (out of season). Loved it, this ice cream lover claims this as one of her favorite desserts!

A flavoursome smoothie which I made with Greek yoghurt - so not frozen yoghurt - as that's what I always buy and it enables me to make smoothies the night before, put them in a Tupperware container to enjoy as an in-the-car-on-the-run breakfast. I made my smoothie with a cup of fresh blueberries and about 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds, a pretty standard ingredient in most smoothies I make. Even after blending, there's still a bit of crunch. I also added a pinch of cinnamon. For my taste, this didn't need extra sweetness, but those with a sweeter tooth may well want to taste test it and add a bit of honey if they want their smoothie a tad sweeter.
