WO and I experimented this weekend with smoothies and ended up with something rather tastee:
- 1 can Ocean Spray whole berry cranberry sauce (Anyone know of a low/no-sugar alternative? We couldn’t find frozen cranberries, and this crap has high fructose corn syrup in it.)
- 1 bag of frozen strawberries
- 3-5 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
Blitz in a blender (my low-speed “puree” setting works very well for frozen fruits) until smooth. Makes about 4 1-cup servings at about 270 calories each (ouch! damn HFCS). Very, very tastee, though. The yogurt makes it a little creamy.
If you’ve got frozen cranberries, I’d recommend using 100% cranberry juice as a liquid with maybe a tablespoon or two of sugar.
