Simple Cooking - Fruit Smoothies

1 c. milk (or soy milk)
2 c. frozen fruit, your choice (Aldi is cheapest)
1/2 c. yogurt (I've been using vanilla Greek yogurt for the protein)
1 packet vanilla instant breakfast if desired or protein powder

Add more milk if the smoothie is too thick. All amounts are estimates. Each smoothie will give you 2 servings each of fruit and dairy...and they are amazing!

Submitted by Diane Day of Aiken. If you have a quick and easy recipe to share, please send it to and include a daytime phone number. You'll receive a thank-you gift if we use your recipe.

-John and his family spent their vacation in Orlando last week. He found some handy smartphone apps that helped them navigate Disney World. One of them is Disney Parks Mobile Magic available for $1.99. It includes park maps, character greeting times, attraction listings, restaurant reservations and more.
