Tips

If you don't have frozen yogurt, freeze an equal amount of vanilla-flavoured yogurt in a plastic container, stirring occasionally, for about 4 hours or until firm. For the Chocolate Almond Shake, add 2 tbsp (30 mL) chocolate syrup with yogurt. For a smoother texture in the Chocolate Almond Shake, substitute 1/4 cup (50 mL) almond butter for the whole almonds.

Healthy Eating Tip: If you think you need 8 glasses of water a day ' think again! The water our body needs also comes from foods and other beverages. Milk, juice and water, even coffee and teas all count ' as do 'watery foods' like many fruits and veggies, yogurt and soup. These shakes provide hydration with the added bonus of vitamins, minerals and protein.

Prepare a Creamsicle Shake as Tropical Creamsicle, replacing ice cubes with 1 cup (250 mL) mixed frozen chopped tropical fruit.
