Very Berry Smoothie

This simple smoothie combines fruit and dairy in a fun snack or even a breakfast on the go. Throw in some ice before you blend and call it a milk shake. What kid could resist this?

INGREDIENTS:

* 1/2 c. raspberries
* 1/2 c. strawberries
* 1 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
* 1/3 c. skim milk

DIRECTIONS:
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend well. Serve.

Apple Dip

* 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, brown sugar and vanilla. Mix well until all of the brown sugar has been blended into the cream cheese and vanilla. If the mixture is too runny for your taste, add a small amount of brown sugar to the mixture. If the mixture is too thick for your taste, add a small amount of vanilla extract.
