COOKING VIDEO: A Happy, Lactose-Free Smoothie


If you avoid smoothies because you have a bit of lactose intolerance, there’s an easy solution:

Make your smoothie with soy-based yogurt! You’ll be more than happy with this easy substitution.

(If you typically get abdominal pain within 30 minutes to two hours after eating any dairy-based product, don’t blame it on the sour cream [or whatever]—get tested for lactose intolerance.

If you’ve never made a smoothie, watch this video to see how easy it is. You’ll wonder why you haven’t made one sooner. The Blueberry Banana Smoothie in this recipe uses frozen blueberries, fresh banana, plain yogurt, honey, vanilla extract and ice. Just pop the ingredients into a blender and press Liquefy: Out comes the smoothie!

Recipe Tips

  • While you can use frozen fruit year-round (berries, mango, other favorite), check the prices and use fresh summer fruit as an alternative.
  • Use your favorite fruits, singly or in combination (strawberry banana, mango peach, pineapple peach, raspberry peach, mixed berries).
  • The recipe uses honey, but you can substitute agave or other favorite sweetener.
  • For protein, add a tablespoon of peanut butter or other nut butter.
