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!


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


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.
