  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fruit of your choice, fresh or frozen
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons oat bran
  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ
  • Vanilla extract, to taste
  • Sweetener of choice, to taste
  • Pinch of cardamom, cinnamon or nutmeg, to taste

Optional: any combination of the following "boosts":

  • 1 to 3 teaspoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons protein powder
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons spirulina or other algae
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons almond, hazelnut or sesame butter
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons nonfat dry milk


Add ingredients to a blender, cover and blend until smooth. Some of the “boosts” have very strong flavors, so experiment gently until you find the combinations you like — or, add some of your own good ideas!

Special notes:

Optional ingredients:

Substitute 4 ounces of silken tofu for yogurt.

Substitute 1/4 cup cooked whole grains for oat bran.
