Skinny Orange Dream
Here’s a skinny orange, light smoothie you’ll really enjoy.  It contains just a handful of ingredients and is so refreshing. Along with orange juice, soy milk, almond milk or reduced-fat milk, it contains vanilla extract. The vanilla softens the hard, acidic edge of the juice and produces a unique flavor, which is fruity and creamy. The milk further softens the blend.  To make it extra skinny, I’ve added a bit of sugar substitute. This is a refreshing, light smoothie for anyone who’s lactose intolerant, if you use soy or almond milk. Each drink has 120 calories, 1 gram of fat and 5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints. So give it a whirl, grab a straw and start skinny sipping!

Prep Time: 5 minutes


Ingredients

⅔ cup orange juice

cup light vanilla soy milk (I like Silk Light Vanilla Soy milk) or light vanilla almond milk, reduced-fat or fat-free milk, if desired

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 packages Stevia, Splenda, Equal or any sugar substitute or regular sugar, to taste

1½ cups ice cubes


Instructions

1. Add all ingredients to a blender.

2. Blend on high for about 1 minute or until the ice is crushed and the smoothie becomes frothy.

Makes 1 smoothie


Food Fact
Soy milk is a drink made from soybeans.  It’s produced by soaking dry soybeans and grinding them with water.


Healthy Benefit
Orange juice is loaded with vitamin C.  One 8 ounce glass supplies 100% of the daily value for vitamin C.

Soy milk contains about the same proportion of protein as milk.  It’s a good source of lecithin and vitamin E.


Substitution Tip
This smoothie also works great with fat-free or reduced-fat milk although I was pleasantly surprised by how great the vanilla soy milk or vanilla almond milk taste in this light smoothie.
