Store-bought smoothies contain a lot of sugar, so I experimented until I came up with a terrific-tasting, homemade low-sugar recipe. Frozen fruit makes it icy cold, and plain yogurt, all-natural stevia sweetener and low-sugar berries make it extra healthy. And if you don’t mind added sugar, try using bananas or peaches, and ginger gives any smoothie an extra kick! 

Ladies, start your blenders!

Ingredients

2 c. plain low-fat yogurt 1 c. frozen blueberries
1 Tbsp. fiber or protein powder ½ c. water
1 c. frozen strawberries 1 packet stevia sweetener

Preparation

1. Put yogurt, powder, strawberries, blueberries, water and stevia into a blender and pulse on low setting. Blend until smooth.

2. Pour into a glass and enjoy.

Serves two.
