Fit Food- Foods that make me feel good (Part 1)

Homemade Fruit and Yogurt Smoothies.

They basically do the job of ice cream, but with way fewer calories, and way more nutrition.

1 c (8oz) Organic Fat Free Plain Yogurt (140 Calories, 8g Protein)
1 c (8oz) Organic Blueberry or Pomegranate Juice (130 Calories)
1 c (8oz) Sliced Organic bananas, frozen (100 Calories)
1 c (8oz) Any other frozen fruit: mango, strawberry, papaya, blackberry, etc. (100 Calories)


And don't drink the whole thing. If you're good at math, you can see that this makes a LOT of smoothie (32oz). This blender will serve 2 easily, but in my house it serves 3. And at 156.7 calories for 10.7oz, I may never go back to ice cream.

  1. Yummy! I love making shakes. Amelia loves them too. She watches me make them and then says, "sit down" and points to the floor. She know she will get lots of sips if I'm sitting next to her! Hahaha. I love adding wheatgrass and kefir to the shakes. That way Amelia will drink the wheatgrass and not know it's in there.
