Dietitian's Tip: 

Enjoy this smoothie to help you achieve DASH recommendations of 2-3 servings of dairy per day. Replacing 1 cup of low-fat vanilla ice cream with 1 cup of low-fat vanilla yogurt will reduce total calories and fat but the good taste will remain.

Ingredients: 

2 cups vanilla low-fat ice cream
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon or apple pie spice
1 cup fat-free skim milk 

Preparation: 

• In a blender container combine low-fat ice cream, applesauce and cinnamon or apple pie spice. Cover and blend until smooth.
• Add fat free skim milk. Cover and blend until mixed.
• Pour into glasses. If desired, sprinkle each serving with an additional cinnamon.
• Serve immediately.
