I created my own version of a "meal shake" for a few reasons. Time, flavor, and price. Hopefully this will be helpful to others as well.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup skim milk or 1 cup soymilk or 1 cup milk or 1 cup fruit juice, of your choice
  • 1 34 cups sugar-free fat-free frozen yogurt, flavor of your choice
  • 1 cup frozen fruit, such as berries,pineapple,banana,etc.,cut large fruit into chunks before freezing (Drained canned fruit works very well)
  • 14 cup Splenda sugar substitute (optional)
  • 1 packet carnation instant breakfast drink mix (from a 6.3 oz. box. Your choice of flavors)


  1. Pour milk or fruit juice into smoothie maker or blender (ALWAYS add all liquid ingredients to smoothie maker or blender FIRST).
  2. Add instant breakfast powder and Splenda, if using, to smoothie maker or blender.
  3. Add frozen yogurt to milk mixture.
  4. Add fruit to smoothie mixture.
  5. Place top on blender or top and stir stick on smoothie maker and blend well.
  6. Note: Larger chunks of fruit will not be as easy to measure, either measure them out before freezing and store in single-serving containers or use twice the amount of frozen fruit in blender or smoothie maker.
  7. If mixture is too thick when blended add a little more milk or fruit juice until desired consistency.
  8. Pour and enjoy!

This smoothie made a great snack for myself ans DSs, not sure I would serve it as a meal. Used sugar free vanilla yogurt, frozen banana, strawberries, and vanilla instant breakfast. Made a creamy smoothie that went fast! Made for I Recommend Tag.

An interesting way to put together a smoothie, though the way it's done leaves the Nutrition Facts almost useless! Still, I can quarrel with this very nice tasting smoothie! Used Mango nectar along with vanilla yogurt, frozen mixed berries & vanilla drink mix (left out the Splenda, though)! Also doubled the ingredient amounts to have a smoothie for each of us! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the Spring round of Pick A Chef]
