Ingredients

6 ounces passion fruit, guava or other fruit-flavored fat-free yogurt*
1 medium chopped mango**
1 small banana**
⅓ cup uncooked, rolled oats
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
½ cup pineapple or orange juice
½ cup fat-free milk

Directions

  1. Put yogurt, mango, banana, oats and ginger in a blender. Add juice and milk.

**Substitute 1 cup any tropical fruit — or any fresh, frozen or canned fruit you have on hand.
