Low Fat Fruit Smoothies

Low Fat Fruit Smoothies-

Fresh strawberries are abundant at our house right now. Our plants are bearing strawberries faster than we can eat them. I love it though, plenty to share with the grandchildren and neighbors. We have been enjoying fresh fruit smoothies, delish and so nice on a hot day. Today I’m sharing my very simple and quick low fat smoothie recipe with you. I hope you enjoy it.

What You Need

1 Cup low fat milk ( I use Lactiad lactose free milk)

1 1/2 Cup ice cubes ( small)

1 Cup Fresh fruit ( washed and cut into chunks)

1 Tbsp sugar substitute (optional) I use splenda ,or use real sugar if you like yours sweeter add a bit more

Blender or Food Processor

Lets Make It! Pour the milk and ice in the blender, cover with the lid and crush well, add fresh fruit and sweetener, cover and process until smooth. (Add more ice if you want it thicker) keep  blending (processing) until smooth ( or the consistency you prefer). Serve in a frosted glass add a piece of fresh fruit.

Serves 1

**Katie’s Tid Bits, you can use a cup of frozen fruit too. Also try sweetening with honey for a little something extra ( add it at the end and mix well.)   Substitute the milk for vanilla ice cream and you have a the full fat version my husband prefers :-)! Do you make smoothies at home? What’s your favorite smoothie flavor?

  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Smoothies! That is my go-to drink when I’m hungry, yet not quite hungry! Filling and refreshing all at the same time! ~Hugs, M

    July is almost here, and the summer heat is coming! These smoothies look like they would be a very cool and refreshing treat. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Those look delicious! I love smoothies!

  4. I love smoothies!! A frozen cut up banana and some peaches…and a little peach juice if you use canned peaches…makes a great smoothie. If you do it with just the frozen banana and a cup of milk it is WONDERFUL too! Even without sugar! Just use a ripe frozen banana.

  5. I love to make smoothies as a quick breakfast on the run! They are so good!

  6. Now I like smoothies! Especially ones with strawberries.

  7. May I have one , please?

  8. We love smoothies at our house too!! Wish I had some strawberry plants in our garden!

  11. This beats soda pop every time, Katie. I wish more kids would realize it. I have loads of strawberries at my place, too. They’re large and consistently perfect, the best crop I’ve seen in quite a while.

  12. Hi Katherine,

    I often make fruit smoothies, especially in summer – it is sometimes all you need for lunch.
    Hope that you are having a lovely week

    Hugs
