3 servings (serving size: 1 cup) 5 min. easy
Sip this power breakfast which boasts more than 300 milligrams of calcium while getting ready for work or on your way there. A scoop of powdered milk boosts the calcium contributed by the yogurt and the calcium-fortified orange juice. Additional nutritional benefits come from potassium-rich banana and antioxidant-rich berries. Frozen berries ensure a thick, creamy consistency, but you can also use fresh ones. Other frozen fruits, such as peaches or mangoes, work well, too.
1 1/4 cups calcium-fortified orange juice
1 1/4 cups frozen mixed berries (such as Cascadian Farm Harvest Berries)
1 cup sliced ripe banana
1/2 cup vanilla fat-free yogurt
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
1 tablespoon sugar
Combine all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.
