This recipe is from a Low Glycemic cookbook. If you are diabetic or eating the low-glycemic way, this rates in the 'very low' category of below 39 if made as directed with a sugar-free yogurt. The flax meal adds a good amount of fiber and it's great for you too! I had one for breakfast and wasn't hungry for the whole morning! The nutrition is: 182 calories, 35 'good' carbs, 3.4 g fiber, 10 g Protein, 327 g calcium.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup sugar-free non-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup strawberry, fresh, frozen (or any other berry)
  • 14 cup orange juice
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed meal


  1. Place ice in a blender and chop or crush, then add the fresh or frozen berries and repeat.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. If it is thicker than you like, add a little more orange juice.
  3. Pour into a 16 ounce glass and serve immediately.

This is the first smoothie that I've had and I liked it. Very healthy. DH thought it was OK but it it's not pancakes. He'll get used to it as I'll make this often this summer.
