Dry milk adds texture and protein without fat or a lot of calories. Try this easy concoction with your favorite fruit: strawberries, blackberries, bananas, kiwi, peaches or cherries, for example. I use apples or bananas, and even chickoos (a sweet, brown-coloured fruit that we get here). This recipe is from www.verybestbaking.com, a Nestle website.
- 3 cups peeled chopped apples or 3 cups bananas or 3 cups strawberries or 3 cups mangoes (or use any other fresh, frozen, unsweetened or canned fruit, drained)
- 1 1⁄3 cups nonfat dry milk powder
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup ice cube
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (optional)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Place all ingredients in blender; cover.
- Blend until smooth.
- Pour into tall glasses and serve!
Wonderful and filling! I made this this afternoon for myself(scaled it down to 1 serving), using fresh strawberries and really enjoyed the smoothie. I did use the granulated sugar as well even though it was optional. A definite keeper!
I took everyone's suggestions on board before making this. I had run out of fresh milk but had full cream milk powder. Also had left over fresh pineapple and pawpaw. I added sugar and since it was so thick I added another cup of water. My biggest change though was adding 3 eggs to the brew as I need the extra calories and protein :). The end result didn't have that milk powder taste which can really spoil the recipe and the kids really liked it too.
