Ingredients

3
bags (16 oz each) frozen tropical fruit
1
container (2 lb) Yoplait® 99% Fat Free creamy vanilla yogurt
2
cans (12 oz each) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 Divide frozen fruit evenly among 8 quart-size resealable freezer plastic bags. Add 1/2 cup yogurt and 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate to each bag. (Save remaining orange juice concentrate for another use.) Seal bags; freeze up to 3 months.
  • 2 To prepare smoothie, place bag(s) in refrigerator and thaw just until fruit mixture can be removed from bag. In blender, place contents of 1 bag and 1 cup cold water. Cover; blend on high speed about 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour into 3 glasses. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

If the fruit mixture is completely thawed before blending, add some ice cubes to the blender, if desired.

Some stores may carry frozen tropical fruit in 48-oz bags; if your store is one of them, use that size instead of the 3 smaller bags.

Garnish each smoothie with an orange slice or other fresh fruit, if desired.

Change up the flavor of these smoothies by using your favorite kind of frozen fruit, yogurt and juice concentrate.
