Something sweet, but not too sweet, that's cool and refreshing - oh yes, a blueberry smoothie is just the thing. I've mentioned on several occasions how much I love Ellie Krieger's cookbook, The Food You Crave. It truly is a fantastic book and you can use her ideas as a jumping off point. Tonight, I wanted something sweet after dinner, but also didn't want a ton of calories which would make me feel like I overate. I started with her recipe for a blueberry smoothie, but had to sub orange juice for the non-fat milk since we didn't have any left (gotta do food shopping tomorrow morning!).
So simple, and honestly, you can just use whatever frozen fruit you have on hand. I used 1 cup of frozen blueberries, 1 cup of vanilla non-fat yogurt, 1/2 cup orange juice and about 1 teaspoon of honey. Blend it all together and serve. It made about 3 servings, and my Oldest really enjoyed it as well.
I just love something so simple and satisfying! I have a huge sweet tooth, so giving up my sweets is really not an option when I am trying to watch what I eat. I think smoothies are going to be my summer dessert option.
