"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."

  • 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)


  • Pour milk or fruit juice into smoothie maker or blender (ALWAYS add all liquid ingredients to smoothie maker or blender FIRST).

  • Add frozen yogurt to milk mixture.
  • Add fruit to smoothie mixture.
  • Place top on blender or top and stir stick on smoothie maker and blend well.

  • Pour and enjoy!

  1. 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.
  2. 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]
  3. Very good, healthy, quick & fun -- thanks for this recipe!
