Strawberry Smoothie with Coconut Water

Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on March 13th, 2013

Although the smoothies at the chain juice joints are tasty, they are often a little too sweet for me.  However, I just love the consistency.  I felt like whenever I added yogurt to my smoothies, they just weren’t quite right.  One day my sister Denise bought the frozen smoothie mix from the freezer section and I noticed they added in frozen pieces of yogurt.  So, I made my own version using frozen yogurt. It has good consistency but is not as sweet

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup low sugar apple juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 cup frozen  non fat greek yogurt (freeze it in something that is freezer safe.  When you are ready use it, spoon the yogurt like ice cream by the tablespoon into your blender or Magic Bullet)
  • 1/2 cup frozen fruit (I used strawberries)

Blend all the ingredients together and enjoy.  This is for a single serving, but can also be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, etc. if you are making this for more people.  🙂
