I’m back to counting calories! This melted the weight off me before, but I was at a very active job at the time. I’ll be putting entries about calorie counting and other weight-loss issues into this Health Stuffs category.
200 Calorie Fruit Smoothie
Great Value – Fat Free Milk – 1/4 cup – 20 calories
Minute Maid – Premium (Pulp Free) Orange Juice – 4 oz. – 50 calories
Healthy Choice – Greek Frozen Yogurt – Strawberry – 1 container – 100 calories
Dole – Frozen Mixed Fruit – 1/2 cup – 30 calories
I shaved a few calories off the milk and the orange juice by going a bit under the line. If I had done the exact measurements, it would add 8 calories.
This was my first attempt using frozen yogurt in a smoothie. I’ve done a lot of smoothies using fruit juice but they’re usually too thick or too thin. I definitely like the consistency of this smoothie…I made it an hour ago and it’s still thick and creamy.
I think next time I’ll leave out the milk entirely, because it’s a little too milky for my taste. I’ll replace it with more orange juice, since this smoothie came out pretty strong berry, and I prefer more citrus. However, I’m thrilled with the consistency! w00t!
