16 ounces Whole Frozen Strawberries – Unsweetened

2 cups Tropicana Trop50 Orange Juice

1-1/2 cup Activia Lite Vanilla Yogurt

1 Banana

4 to 6 Fresh Strawberries Garnish

Whipped Cream Topping – Optional

Place frozen strawberries in blender. Add orange juice, yogurt and fresh banana. Puree until mixture is completely blended. Divide between four larger glasses or six smaller glasses. Garnish with fresh strawberry. Top with dollop of whipped cream if desired.

Serves 4 to 6. 486 Calories entire batch. 121.5 calories if dividing among 4 glasses. 81 calories if dividing among 6 glasses. Garnish not included in calorie count

Quick Tip: I use frozen fruits to keep the fruit smoothie rock solid chilled without the use of ice that will begin melting and water down the fruit smoothie. Purchase ready made unsweetened frozen fruit or flash freeze fresh fruit for later use.
