Banana- Berry Smoothie
Sip this power breakfast which boasts more than 300 milligrams of calcium while getting ready for work or on your way there. A scoop of powdered milk boosts the calcium contributed by the yogurt and the calcium fortified orange juice. Additional nutritional benefits come from potassium rich banana and antioxidant rich berries. Frozen berries ensure a thick, creamy consistency, but you can also use fresh ones. Other frozen fruits, such as peaches or mangoes, work well, too.

- 1 cup sliced ripe banana
- 1/2 cup vanilla fat-free yogurt
- 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
