Healthy Yogurt Smoothies

All the healthy new year’s resolutions may be leaving your sweet tooth a bit unsatisfied. I love ice cream probably more than the average person, that is why I’ve played with different yogurt smoothie recipes over the years to quench the sweet cravings.

The Orange Julius and Jamba Juice concoctions we pass by at the mall may taste great, but many of them are packed with 350 to over 500 calories and lots of unnecessary sugars. I find that these homemade smoothies taste just as good and keep my body away from the sugar highs and lows.

Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Ingredients:
1/2 C. non-fat vanilla yogurt
1 whole banana
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
A splash (or 2) of vanilla soy milk
5-8 ice cubes

Blend first four ingredients together. Add ice cubes. Blend until smooth.

This smoothie is great for breakfast with a piece of 100% whole wheat toast. If you are looking for more of a dessert smoothie and that chocolate fix, add a small swirl of Hershey’s chocolate sauce.

Orange Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Ingredients:
1/2 C. non-fat vanilla yogurt
1 whole banana
1/2 C. fresh or frozen strawberries
A splash (or 2) of orange juice (I love Simply Orange with Pineapple or Mango)
5-8 ice cubes

Blend first four ingredients together. Add ice cubes. Blend until smooth.

Berry Berry Pomegranate Smoothie

Ingredients:
1/2 C. non-fat vanilla yogurt
1 C. fresh or frozen mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries and/or blackberries)
1/4 C. 100% pomegranate juice
5-8 ice cubes

Blend first three ingredients together. Add ice cubes. Blend until smooth.

Cheers to a happy and healthy new year!
