My taste testers loved this delicious vitamin C-rich smoothie, one serving of which contains more than twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. Tip: Use mango juice with no added sugar, such as Ceres Mango Fruit Juice.
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup 100% pure mango juice
½ cup low-fat (1% MF or less) plain yogurt or soy yogurt
2 kiwi, peeled
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. If you are making this to enjoy later in the day, chill until serving.
