1 medium mango
1 small banana
6 oz. (1 container) of plain, non-fat yogurt
1/2 cup of fat-free milk
1/3 cup 100 uncooked, rolled oats
2 teaspoons fresh, grated ginger
1/2 Cup 100 % Pineapple or Orange Juice

If the smoothie is too thick, add juice or milk to desired consistency.
Tips & Tricks:
- Greek yogurt is a great option if you want something with a little more protein and fiber. Just make sure to add a little more juice or milk.
- Feel free to substitute 1 cup any tropical fruit in place of banana and mango — or any fresh, frozen or canned fruit you have on hand.
