Healthy Recipe- Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie

It's not all meat and main dishes around here- we make room for sweet things too, and this easy smoothie can be a part of your meal, a treat or a dessert. It whips up quickly with a blender, and makes a generous glass full of strawberry goodness.

Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie

6 medium strawberries (fresh or frozen)

1- 4 oz tub Dannon Lite and Fit Sugar and Carb Control Yogurt- any flavor

1/4 cup Breyer's Smart Carb Vanilla Ice Cream

Ice Cubes

Stem (if necessary) and slice 5 of the strawberries and put in a blender. Add the yogurt and ice cream. Blend on high until mixed. Add ice cubes one at a time and blend until the smoothie is thick (like a milk shake). Pour into a glass and top with the remaining strawberry.

Serves: 1

Calories: 135

Carbs: 10.5 gr*

(*there is some controversy over whether all of the Sugar Alcohol Carbohydrates can be subtracted, so I added the ice cream carbs. If you discount them, the total carb count for the smoothie is 9gr).

Note: You can add a packet of Equal if you want the smoothie to be a little sweeter.
