Feeling a need for something lighter after a holiday eating marathon? Whip up this healthy, no-sugar-added smoothie created by nutritionist and exercise physiologist, Jeanine Barone. You can experiment with the amount of apple juice and ice to achieve the texture you like. For a thicker smoothie, use a whole banana instead of half.
- 1 cup plain low-fat or nonfat yogurt
- 1/2 cup each of blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1/2 banana
- Splash of apple juice
- Optional: 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or ground ginger, or 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- Optional: Sugar substitute
Combine all ingredients in a blender and add up to six ice cubes. Blend until smooth and frothy.
