Banana-Berry Smoothie

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Jan Gautro

Frozen mixed berries and dry milk help keep cost and preparation to a minimum for this anytime smoothie. Blend with banana, yogurt, sugar, and orange juice for a citrus accent. Substitute other frozen fruits, like peaches, for fun variety.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups calcium-fortified orange juice
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen mixed berries (such as Cascadian Farm Harvest Berries)
  • 1 cup sliced ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup vanilla fat-free yogurt
  • 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Preparation

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.
Note:

Sip this power breakfast which boasts more than 300 milligrams of calcium while getting ready for work or on your way there. A scoop of powdered milk boosts the calcium contributed by the yogurt and the calcium-fortified orange juice. Additional nutritional benefits come from potassium-rich banana and antioxidant-rich berries. Frozen berries ensure a thick, creamy consistency, but you can also use fresh ones. Other frozen fruits, such as peaches or mangoes, work well, too.
