Full Answer

A mango smoothie requires 3/4 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt, 1 cup diced mango and one peeled orange. 1/2 cup of ice and a little water helps get the proper consistency. Blend the ingredients together for three servings. Frozen mango can help keep the temperature right and prevent the ice from melting too much, while low fat yogurt offers a healthy alternative.

For a mixed berries and banana smoothie, add 1 cup of frozen mixed berries, one sliced frozen banana and 1/2 cup of vanilla yogurt to a blender and blend until smooth. For added flavor, include 1/4 cup of citrus juice to bring out the sweetness of the other ingredients with the acid in the juice. A little honey also adds sweetness to the drink.

To make a kiwi strawberry smoothie, blend 1 chopped kiwi, 1/2 cup of frozen chopped strawberries and one frozen sliced banana together. To ensure proper consistency, include 1/3 cup of vanilla yogurt and 1/3 cup of orange juice before blending. A tablespoon of flax seeds adds texture and additional nutrients to the smoothie.
