Recipe: Fruit smoothies

Updated: 12-01-2007

Dietitian's tip: Orange juice is an excellent source of potassium, a mineral that helps to regulate blood pressure and cell function. If you want to substitute a banana instead of the orange juice, the potassium content is similar.


Serves: 2

1 cup fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt
3/4 cup fat-free milk
1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate


In a blender, combine the frozen yogurt, milk and orange juice concentrate. Blend until smooth.

Pour into tall frost-chilled glasses and serve immediately.
