  • 1 banana

  • 2 cups chopped ripe cantaloupe

  • 1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk

  • 1 ½ tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place unpeeled banana in the freezer overnight (or for up to 3 months).

  2. Remove the banana from the freezer and let it sit until the skin begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Remove the skin with a paring knife. (Don't worry if a little fiber remains.) Cut the banana into chunks. Add to a blender or food processor along with cantaloupe, yogurt, dry milk, orange juice and vanilla. Blend until smooth.


Make Ahead Tip: Freeze the banana for up to 3 months.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
