College Dorm Smoothie


Most of us don’t really have a package of frozen strawberries or a container of plain yogurt (not to mention flaxseed) lying around, but we crave smoothies too!  So this is for you, ESPECIALLY if you’re a college student and you can swipe all these items from your dining hall.


  • 4 ice cubes
  • All-fruit Popsicle (I used Edy’s strawberry Fresh Fruit bar)
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 6 oz flavored yogurt (I used Yoplait light banana creme pie)
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/3 packet of instant oatmeal (I used Quaker Low Sugar Strawberries and Cream)

and just blend it all up!

Submitted by a college student, obviously.

Mango Smoothie Recipe  I love mango, but only in two forms: the fruit itself with nothing else or in a smoothie. That great tangy and yet sweet flavor is unique in the fruit family and is one reason it is so great as a smoothie ingredient.

    Wow I just made this for myself and kids – we all really really loved it – I couldn’t find any oatmeal though – my daughter likes it more than orange Julius :D plus I don’t have to spend $4 on it lol!

    i had yogurt, but only the yoplait whips kind
    no orange juice, but i had some banana/orange dole juice
    no bananas, but i had two strawberries
    i used apple cinnamon instant oatmeal
    and i actually had milk :)

    Be careful- I once made a smoothie with orange juicer and milk, and the acid curdled the milk. I got food poisoning and couldn’t hold down any food for a week. You should omit the orange juice, or use non-dairy milk and yogurt.

    Concerned: You can’t get food poisoning from curdled milk. That’s essentially what cheese is. Food poisoning is caused by toxins produced by microbial infections, most commonly Staphlococus spp. or E. coli. What else did you eat that day? Did you use a cutting board to cut the banana that had also been used for meet and not properly sanitized?
