New Years Resolution: Greek Yogurt Smoothie

I know its hard to get kids... and certain husbands to eat healthy, here is a great way to start off any day. you get 2-3 servings of fruit and the protein from the Greek Yogurt is enough to sustain you till its time for a mid morning snack! My kids love these!

Greek Yogurt Smoothie

Any or all of the following
1 ripe Mango sliced
1 cup Strawberries, quartered
1 ripe Banana, quartered
½ cup blueberries
½ cup raspberries
1 cup orange juice
1 cup skim milk
1 cup Greek yogurt (any flavor)

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend away.  Depending on the ripeness of the fruits, you may need to add more juice or milk.

Serves 4-6

Notes on Greek yogurt: If has more protein that regular yogurt and a lower fat content.  It is a good ingredient to sub for things like sour cream as well.
