I thought that I had previously posted this, but I guess not. This has been my pre-treadmill breakfast lately and it's very fast, easy and yummy. Make sure to stock up on melon when it's at its peak and freeze it for smoothies. Also, freeze peeled 1/2 bananas before they become overripe (in freezer-weight ziplock bags).

Melon Smoothie^ -2 to 2 1/2 points

Recipe By :Adapted From The Mayo Clinic Williams-Sonoma Cookbook
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:05
Categories : Breakfast drinks


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup melon balls
1/2 banana -- cut into pieces
2 2/3 tablespoons orange juice -- 3 fl. oz.
2 tablespoons plain nonfat yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons unprocessed wheat bran
1 fluid ounce skim milk -- Jane's addition,optional

In a blender, combine the cantaloupe, banana, OJ, yogurt, and bran. Blend until smooth, about 20 seconds.

Pour into a glass and serve with a straw.

I used frozen fruit chunks and let then stand (in the blender) at room temperature for about 5 minutes before blending. Rather than have to clean a blender, I make this in a large plastic cup using one of those hand-held "immersion" blenders. I sometimes add a few splashes of skim milk to soften the consistency.

Input into MC5 by JaneStarr@home.com in CT

I like to keep some frozen melon balls in a freezer zip-lock bag . I also freeze peeled bananas the same way.

I have spent the last couple days doing MASSIVE online research about "sports drinks" and electrolyte replacement drinks. The following long-winded treatise is the result of that research.

First off, DO YOU NEED A SPORTS DRINK? According to some articles I read, if you exercise less than an hour at a time, probably not. Plain water would do as well, they say, and the electrolytes (sodium and potassium) you sweat away can be easily replaced by the foods you eat.

HOWEVER: If you exercise a lot, or sweat profusely, electrolyte replacement is a good idea. I fall into the latter category: I sweat when I work out. A LOT. And I've felt the need for an electrolyte replacement drink.

PROBLEM: All commercial "sports drinks" contain sugars for carb replacement, as well as the electrolytes. Calorie counts vary from 50-70 cal per 8-oz serving... that's a POINT OR MORE PER CUP! And you'll be drinking LOTS of cups!

The sugars in sports drinks serve two purposes: to provide quick fuel for working muscles, AND to (slightly) improve absorption by the body compared to plain water.

I wanted a sugar-free "sports drink" that would taste good (which, studies show, help people to drink more of it than they would plain water), provide electrolytes, but not add any points.

NOTE: If you work out for extended periods (distance running, that sort of thing), then you NEED the carbs in the regular "sports drinks"!! Skip the rest of this post, and go grab some Gatorade or All Sport or whatever... However, for most of us who work out an hour or less, we don't NEED the carbs, and to some extent they defeat the purpose (we're supposed to be trying to burn FAT, after all, and if we guzzle sugary sports drinks, our bodies will gladly burn that sugar instead of our fat!)

ARE SUGAR-FREE "Sports Drinks" COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE? Well, if they are, several Internet searches failed to turn them up. I did find a company that sells mineral water with added electrolytes, but they cost a bundle ($30 for a case of 24 20-oz bottles!)

SO, I set about making my own "sports drink". There seems to be a great disparity between different sports drinks in terms of how much sodium and potassium they contain. A trip to the supermarket and inspection of nutrition labels revealed the following (per 8-oz serving :

-------------- Sodium ----- Potassium
Gatorade:----- 110 mg ------- 30 mg
All Sport:---- 55 mg ------- 50 mg
PowerAde:----- 55 mg ------- 30 mg

(NOTE: Gatorade, All Sport, and PowerAde are registered trademarks of the companies involved. However, the data in the table above, since it came directly from government-required nutrition labels, is presumably in the public domain.)

For what it's worth, Gatorade has more sodium than the others, but significantly less carbs. Both sodium and carbs help the drink get into the system faster, but the sodium is more important. I elected to go for essentially a 75/50 mg mix of sodium and potassium. However, the sodium DOES allow the stuff to get into the system faster than plain water does, so it needs to be there, especially since our version will be carb-free.

As a "base", I decided to use a sugar-free powdered drink mix (I used Wyler's Lite, but Sugar-Free KoolAid or Crystal Light would work just as well.) Be sure that whatever you choose is sodium-free, or adjust the recipe accordingly. BTW, these drink mixes all have added Vitamin C, which may not be necessary but it certainly can't hurt...

For sodium, ordinary table salt will do fine.

For potassium, I bought potassium tablets (99 mg each), 100 tablets for under $2.00 at Wal-Mart.

Okay, without further ado, the recipe:

---------------------------------------------
SUGAR-FREE "SPORTS DRINK"

1 packet or container sugar-free drink mix (to make 2 qts)
1/4 tsp table salt
4 potassium tablets (99 mg each)
2 quarts water

Take about 1/4 cup of the water and put in a cup with the potassium tablets. Heat in the microwave until the water gets close to boiling. Stir to dissolve the tablets. Add the salt and stir.

Put the drink mix in a pitcher, add water, and stir until the drink mix is dissolved. Add the salt/potassium solution and mix thoroughly. Chill.

Per 8-oz serving: 5 cal, about 75 mg sodium, 50 mg potassium. ZERO POINTS.

If you'd like less sodium, use a 1/8-tsp measure, and do one level measure plus 1/2 of another. This will cut the sodium to about 55 mg/serving instead of 75. (FYI, 1/4 tsp of salt contains 590 mg sodium.)

This drink tastes just fine... it has the characteristic slight saltiness that one associates with the commercial sports drinks, but it's not objectionable at all.

Great for breakfast or as a snack-- very filling! Play around with the ingredients and the amounts to get a taste you love.

Note: Frozen fruits are available all year and help thicken up the texture. Fresh fruits pack more punch in the flavor department- so experiment to see what you prefer.

1 medium banana
1 cup frozen blueberries (or anything you like)
1/2 cup fat free yogurt (any type you like)
1 1/4 cup orange juice (I like to use the calcium fortified)
Add ice for extra thickness if desired
Mix all ingredients in the blender and enjoy!

The points will vary according to the size of the banana, type of yogurt you use etc. Mine usually come out to 6 points or so.

;) This is more of a Slurpee than a Blizzard but very good. I use 1 cup of club soda and 1/2 tub of Crystal Light. Blend in blender, add ice cubes and blend, adding ice cubes to reach desired consistency! Enjoy! I don't have the point count for WW, but can't be much as an 8 oz. gladd of Crystal Lifht is only 5 calories.

Im always looking for healthy ways to still eat the things i love. This shake was my own invention.

2 c ice cubes
2 table spoons fat free coolwhip
Chocolate flavored torani sugar free syrup flavoring
a little water is needed to make blend smoother

enjoy!

sometimes i like to make my shakes chocolate rasberry ones by adding some of crystal lites rasberry ice powder. It just adds like 5-10 calories, and is a great taste booster

Here are a couple Smoothies.


Although there are other fruits in these recipes, you can switch out the Fruits.

Blueberry/Banana Fruit Smoothie
(Combine 1/2 cup each of skim milk, frozen blueberries, sliced banana, and 8 ounces vanilla fat-free aspartame-sweetened yogurt in a blender; process until smooth. Sprinkle with 1 tsp toasted wheat germ.) (4 Points)

Banana Smoothie
(Combine 1 cup fat-free milk, 1 banana, 2 tbsp toasted wheat germ, 1 tbsp sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract in a blender; process until smooth.) (6 Points)

Strawberry Smoothie
(Combine 1 cup sliced strawberries, 1/2 cup skim milk and 8 oz. vanilla fat-free light yogurt in a blender; process until smooth.) (5)


Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie
(Combine 1 cup strawberries, 1/2 cup skim milk & 8 oz vanilla fat-free aspartame-sweetened yogurt in a blender; process until smooth.) (4)

I personally use a Base of the following then add the Fruit I want.

Smoothie Base:
1/2 Cup Skim Milk (1pt)
4 oz. Yogurt (sugarfree, Fatfree)(I buy Dannon Lite and Fit)(2pts)
(3 points total)


Blend well and add the fruit that you desire.


Hope this helps.

Ingredients:
1 packet fat free or diet hot chocolate mix, dissolved in 4 oz warm water
1 Tbsp sugar free chocolate syrup
2 oz. light vanilla soy milk
3 Splenda packets
1 Tbsp of mini chocolate chips
7-8 ice cubes
Fat Free Reddi-Wip

Directions:
Place dissolved cocoa, chocolate syrup, Splenda, chips, soy milk and ice in a blender. Blend on high speed for 30-45 seconds. Pour into an attractive cup and top with a little Fat Free Reddi-Wip. Enjoy!
