I'm still not feeling one hundred percent, though the pressure in my head has finally began to subside, so this morning I really wanted to boost my Vitamin C intake to kick this cold once and for all. So, since I had a cantaloupe (on sale for $1.50 ea. this week), grapes (also on sale, $1.99), and strawberries (left-over and already frozen) I decided to whip up this cool and creamy smoothie, which has 121% of your recommended daily intake of Vitamin C!
Its mildly sweet flavor, and cold creamy consistency was even soothing on a sore throat, so how could you go wrong?
1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt
1 cup (each) cantaloupe, strawberries and green grapes, sliced and frozen
1 cup plain soy milk
Combine all of the ingredients into a blender (starting with the yogurt, then the frozen fruit, and then the milk), and blend until smooth.
If the smoothie is too thin, add ice and blend to thicken.
If the smoothie is too thick, add more soy milk and blend.
If the smoothie is not sweet enough, add just a teaspoon (or two) of sugar and re-blend.
Serve immediately, and enjoy.
Each smoothie contains approximately 174 calories, 4 g fiber and 8 g protein. Also high in Vitamins A and C.
