2 servings

1 1/2 cups ice

1 cup whole milk yogurt

6 ounces (half a can) orange juice concentrate

1 small can of mandarin oranges, drained

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 tablespoons sugar (or more, if you like it super-sweet)

I am a big fan of dairy-free smoothies. My husband and I usually start our days with:

1 banana

~1 c. frozen mixed berries (Trader Joe's has a good variety of these)

~1/2 c. orange juice

whatever fresh fruit on hand looks good

I just fill up the blender and make sure there's enough liquid for it to be able to blend. Sometimes we add ground flaxseed but you have to go easy as it thickens it up quite a bit. The juices and fruit all vary but the base is a banana and some frozen be

We do one of these two a couple of times a week:

A whole mango

Juice and zest of 1 lime

1/2 cup red berries of any kind (straw, razz, black)

1 shot (tbsp or so.) maple syrup

6 ice cubes

1 sprinkle of acidophilous or other probiotic powder

Blend away. A-may-zing. Every time we serve this to overnight guests they ALWAYS ask for the recipe. Or:

1 cup plain soy or lowfat yogurt

1/2 cup frozen red berries

1 shot maple syrup

Blend it up! YUM.

smoothies are my summer-time staple here in hot, hot florida! here's my favorite:

1 cup yogurt (i like low-fat greek strained, lots of protein!)

2 tbsp chunky peanut butter (almond butter is good, too)

a touch of chocolate syrup

6-8 ice cubes

blend and enjoy! a great stand-in when you're craving ice cream.
