Today in the spirit of trying to improve my health (immune system) I decided to make myself a healthy smoothie. Here is the recipe.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

One large banana (peeled)

6-10 frozen or fresh strawberries

100 g no fat vanilla yogurt

100 g no fat strawberry yogurt

1 ½- 1 ¾ cup skim milk (or more if needed)

1 teaspoon lime juice

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Makes two large sized glasses of smoothie.

Mango and Peach Fizz

Today I decided to try another recipe from my favorite cookbook; Reader’s Digest Low-Calorie cookbook. I picked the mango, peach, and apricot fizz recipe on page 17. I omitted the apricot and substituted ginger ale for club soda. The drink turned out okay, but it was too fibrous and pulpy for me (not smooth). It is a very healthy drink, but I am not sure I would make it again. Here is my version of this recipe.

Mango and Peach Fizz

1 ripe mango

1 ripe peach

1 mandarin orange

2 ½-3 cups club soda

1 tbsp real lime juice

Peal the mango and slice into small pieces. Peal the peach (if desired I did not), and cut into small pieces. Peel the orange. Place all fruit in a blender and add the club soda and real lime juice. Blend, and serve over ice.

Below is an image of this beverage. The red bits are from the peach skin. If I did make this recipe again I would use less mango (maybe ½ instead of a full mango).
