Healthy Smoothie Ideas

Smoothie Break

•   Whirl up some low fat milk or yogurt, 1/2 cup frozen fruit and a banana for a super delicious smoothie – and 2 entire fruit servings!

•   Blend up a large batch and freeze in single portions for an easy on-the-go breakfast or snack.

•   Surprisingly, some vegetables make great fiber-filling smoothie additions. Try carrots, a 1/2 cup of creamy canned pumpkin, or cooked sweet potato for a tasty addition. Try our Cucumber, Apple, and Mint Cooler (shown) for a refreshing, low-calorie smoothie that banks 1 serving of vegetables.
