  • Tropical Smoothie

    This is a smoothie I concocted for my husband, but I love it too. It’s perfect for these hot summer days!

    Tropical Smoothie

    1/4 cup soy vanilla frozen yogurt
    2/3 cup pineapple chunks
    1 cup mango chunks
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup nonfat milk

    Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.

    Nutrition bonus: You’ll get lots of vitamin C from this. Use calcium-fortified orange juice and boost your calcium intake, too.

    Note: The last time I made this, I added a scoop of vanilla protein powder and it affected the texture only slightly.
