I don't know where I got this recipe, but I use it in a workshop I teach about children's nutrition. It's really yummy and nutritious, and it's a fun thing to make as a snack with kids. I was just sharing the recipe with Kathy, because she said her son is fascinated with the blender these days (and teaching him to make margaritas just doesn't seem okay).
1 small frozen banana, cut into chunks 1/2 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt 1/4 cup orange juice
Put all ingredients into the blender and whirl until smooth. These are fairly thick. Add more liquid if you want them thinner. Make up your own variations using other fruits and juices. Makes 2 servings, each having 125 calories, 213 mg calcium, 10 mg vitamin C, 7 grams protein, and 160 mg sodium.
The original recipe called for plain yogurt, so using vanilla may make a few more calories, but not many, and the taste improvement is well worth it. Using the frozen banana makes it frosty and creamy just like ice cream.
Oh, and if you're anxiously awaiting the results of my weigh-in, I did in fact gain a bit, but not the full two pounds Saturday showed. When I weighed Sunday it was down about .6 from that. Still not good. Anyway, I'm back home and back in the routine, so hopefully I'll be moving that ticker in the proper direction soon! And I did actually do yoga Saturday as promised, plus I walked one day on my trip.
I consider writing blip-its about myself a form of torture, but can talk about my interests, plans, dreams, and ideas for hours. I'm 37 years old, hapily married and mother to one human child and two dogs. My life, career, and eating habits are ever-evolving. I would like to lose about 30+ pounds and still be able to enjoy food and life.
I'm 41 years old, single, and I live with two dogs and two cats. I'm experimenting with semi-vegetarianism and recently gave up diet soda. I work from home, hate sports, love junk food, and would like to lose about 50 pounds. And win the lottery.
