Simple, Low-Fat Fruit Smoothes

These smoothies are fabulous! My kids love eating them with a spoon.

What you need:

1 Cup Almond Milk
1 Cup Mixed Fruit - fresh or frozen
(Strawberries, Peaches, Cantaloupe, Pineapple, Red Seedless Grapes)
Approx. 3 Tablespoons fat free yogurt

Mix ingredients together in blender and grind until smooth. Add extra fruit or milk for desired thickness. Only 160 calories and 2.5 grams of fat!

Mixing Tip: Add a handful of fresh, organic spinach. The kids won't know the difference, and spinach is rich in nutrients such as vitamin A, B, C, E and K.

Shopping Tip: Check the sugar on the yogurt label. "Fat-Free" can often lead to higher sugar, so beware. I use Publix brand because it has less sugar than other name brands.
