Tangerine Freeze
WebMD Weight Loss Clinic members: Journal a small serving as 1/2 cup low-fat yogurt sweetened with fruit or frozen + 1 portion fresh fruit.
This is a great recipe to try if you’re looking for a way to “hide” yogurt. You’ll never know there’s yogurt in this fruity freeze.
1 cup tangerine or orange segments (mandarin oranges from can or jar, drained, can also be used)
6 to 8 ounces orange-flavored yogurt (light or regular can be used)
1/3 cup orange or tangerine juice (as fresh as possible)
1 cup crushed ice
  • Place tangerine or orange segments in a plastic bag or container to freeze for at least an hour.
  • Add frozen tangerine or orange segments to blender or food processor along with the yogurt and orange juice. Blend until smooth. Add in a cup of crushed ice and blend until smooth.
  • Pour into a tall glass or two smaller glasses and serve.
Yield: 1 tall glass or two small smoothies
