Caring for my sweet tooth

I have been forced into a low fat diet due to some minor health issues. For the most part I've winged it, especially since I like my vegetables and I'm fine with things cooking in their own fat rather than adding some. Desserts are often an issue, and I have to admit I like them a lot. I usually buy fat-free ice cream, but today I was out of it. I looked at the fridge and had a couple of fat free yoghurts, and a bag of half-thawed frozen strawberries. So, a smoothie was born.

1 6oz fat free strawberry yoghurt
1 6 oz fat free vanilla yoghurt
1 pound bag of frozen strawberries, half way thawed (this way you don't need ice for a nice chill smoothie)
1 cup no pulp orange juice

Put everything in blender, blend till smooth. Add more orange juice if you want a thinner consistency.

Makes 2-3 servings, depends on how big glasses you have ;)

I love smoothies - I even have smoothie recipe books! These are two of my favourite recipes. Both are low fat :-)
