Dreamsicle Smoothie – 1 point!

I’m turning into a real Smoothie lover this summer, thanks to my Bella Cucina bullet blender.  Yesterday I made a great Dreamsicle Smoothie for 1 point, yes, dear hearts, one point!!!!

I’m a Dreamsicle lover, have loved the orangy ice cream on a stick since I was a child, so for me, this is just mind blowing!!!!!

3/4 cup Dannon Lite & Fit Fat Free Vanilla Yogurt

3/4 cup Crystal Light Orange Sunrise Beverage

Splenda to taste

Healthy splash of Fat Free Half & Half

dash of vanilla

crushed ice (about 1/3 cup)

Put everything into the blender and process until slushy.

Here’s how it breaks down – 1 cup of Dannon yogurt is 110 calories, but I only used 3/4 cup, so that coupled with the splash of FFree Half &” Half was only a point – that’s it, no points for anything else.

The flavor was wonderful, but I’m always tweeking, so the next tub of Crystal Lite OrangeSunrise that I make, I’m going to just use half the water it calls for, that way the orange flavor will be even more intense and still no calories.

Whoohoo, works for me!
