A smoothie made with low-fat yogurt and fruit. I use non-fat, no sugar added yogurt, which makes this good for diabetics. Garnish with a mint sprig, if desired.
- 1 cup frozen strawberries, partially thawed
- 1 large banana
- 1 cup orange juice
- 8 ounces no-sugar-added nonfat lemon yogurt
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 4 ice cubes
- Place all ingredients in a blender.
- Process until smooth.
- Pour into glasses and enjoy!
Very refreshing and the citrus flavors was a nice change from the usual creamy smoothies! I left out the lime juice (didn't have) and added a little Splenda. Both DS and I enjoyed this for an afternoon snack. Made for Zaar Stars.
Wowee...is this ever good Mike. I used blackberries in place of the strawberries. Sooo refreshingly good on this hot summer day. Since I was only serving 1 I cut the recipe back just a bit. 3/4 cup of blackberries and 3/4 cup of Welch's orange, pineapple, apple juice. My yogurt was a 6 oz. Yoplait Lemon Cream Pie. My banana was frozen and so I only used 3 cubes. Just the perfect amount of sweetness too. No need to add sugar. A must repeat...maybe yet today even!!!!

Definitely a winner of a recipe, & the lemon & lime flavors are a welcome addition! I did use a large frozen banana & although I did leave out the ice, it had a nice frosty chill! Thanks for sharing this great keeper! [Made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday tag]
