Recipe from Cooking Light

Start with creamy frozen yogurt and add peanut butter, milk, and honey for a nutty sweet treat. Silken tofu and ground flaxseed help this smoothie stick with you throughout an afternoon of running errands.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt
  • 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/3 cup cubed soft silken tofu
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (optional)

Preparation

  1. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Sprinkle with flaxseed, if desired.

Notes

Flaxseed boosts heart health and may enhance vision. You can find it in health-food stores already ground. Or grind whole flaxseed in a spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle. Store it in the refrigerator or freezer to keep it fresh. Enjoying this smoothie also helps you meet your daily calcium needs.
