One of the things I love best about hot summer days is relaxing with cold, delicious beverages. One of my favorite summer ( or any season) treats are yogurt smoothies. I have several recipes that I really like including a Malted Banana Smoothie. I tend to eat lighter in the summer and smoothies are a healthy and filling meal replacement if I need something quick. I will often have a smoothie for breakfast instead of my usual cereal or oatmeal.
This banana smoothie does not have yogurt in it, but ,surprisingly, the recipe said it only has about 320 calories.
I have a hard time getting my darling hubby to eat fruits and vegetables( yeah,he's not a veggie and fruit lover like me!), so a smoothie is a good way to sneak some fruits into his diet.
Malted Banana Smoothie:
1 cup low fat milk (or vanilla soy milk can be used)
1 medium banana, peeled and sliced
1/4 c. malted-milk powder
1 tbl. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients together until smooth and frothy.
