MMMM. Blueberries are a perfect way to wake up!

I’ve recently gotten into CrossFit and it is an AWESOME program – even the general soreness, aches and pains! It has been awhile since I have felt this in shape! When working out as hard as the CrossFit program demands, eating better is a must, so I’m always looking for ways to combine flavor with quality nutrients. I was looking for something aside from the standard protein shake, raw eggs or steak cooked rare, something else that would fill me up with healthy ingredients. I wanted something that would give me protein, while also curbing my sweet tooth – for a little while anyway. What better than a yogurt shake?! It’s like a milkshake, but healthy!! Dynamite! With this realization, I went about making a few variations. I hope they inspire you to try something new with your Tillamook Light Yogurt!

One positive about these shakes is that they take very few ingredients. The items here made ALL of the shakes listed below!

Raspberry Shake
This is my favorite shake of the three. Combining Tillamook Light Raspberry Yogurt with even more real raspberries, a banana and a little bit of orange juice makes for a very natural tasting and healthy treat! If you like tart flavors or raspberries and citrus, this is your shake to start the day!

2 cups crushed ice
¼ – ½ cup fresh raspberries
½ of a banana
¼ cup orange juice
6 ounces Tillamook Light Raspberry Yogurt

Peach Shake
It’s summer – well, kind of – and that means peaches are running rampant around Oregon. To capture this window of time, how about eating some peaches and cream the healthy way?! The great thing about this shake is that it is like peaches and cream without the calories of the cream – where do I sign?!

2 cups crushed ice
1 whole peach
¼ – ½ cup milk (I used 1%)
6 ounces Tillamook Light Peach Yogurt

Vanilla Blueberry Shake
Vanilla. Good. Blueberry. Good. Shake. GREAT! Blueberries, a crop close to my heart since the age of 12 when I started picking them for gainful employment, are not only a good source of income but also antioxidants. Healthy squared. Sounds yummy to me! The flavor is calm, but luscious. The flavor is not overpowering but it tastes like it has ice cream in it. If you like that flavor, but not the calories, this is the solution!

2 cups crushed ice
¼ – ½ fresh blueberries
¼ – ½ cup milk
6 ounces Tillamook Light Vanilla Bean Yogurt

I know you are all better chefs than I am, so what is your favorite thing to mix with Tillamook Light Yogurt?
