My son Ricky loves fruit and healthy foods. He has been so busy lately with his music that a quick treat like this smoothie hits the spot and provides some much needed nutrition.
1 cup strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup orange juice, fat free
1-1/2 cup plain yogurt
Protein powder optional for meal
Cup of ice
1. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pour into tall glass.
3. Can put into the freezer for a few minutes to get it nice and chilly.
Strawberries are rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants. The blueberries provide beta carotene and are also rich in antioxidants to fight cancer causing free radicals. Bananas are full of potassium and all of the fruits are excellent sources of dietary fiber. Yogurt aids in digestion, and its creaminess makes it an excellent low calorie and low fat substitute for ice cream, sour cream or mayonnaise in most dishes.
