Enjoy it as a day-time snack or as a light, yet fulfilling dessert. With just 130 calories, you won't even have to feel guilty about the indulgence...

Creamy Apple Cinnamon Smoothie
(Serves 2)

3/4 cup fat-free plain (or vanilla) yogurt
3/4 cup diced apple (Don't peel the apple if you're looking for a little extra fiber in your diet.)
1/2 cup apple juice (made into ice cubes)
1/2 banana (frozen and sliced, optional)
a dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg

Combine ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately, and enjoy. To make more than two servings just make multiple batches in quick succession and serve immediately.

**Tip: To make these ahead of time, blend and store in a tightly sealed jug in the refrigerator until needed. Shake to remix before serving. Note – the smoothies may be thinner in consistency when made ahead.

Each smoothie contains approximately 130 Calories, 2-3 g fiber, 6 g protein and High in Vitamin C.
