In this Creamy Fruit Smoothie, dry milk adds texture and protein without fat or a lot of calories. Try this easy concoction with your favorite fruit: strawberries, blackberries, bananas, kiwifruit, peaches or cherries, for example. A healthy alternative to the traditional milk shake.

  • 1 1/3 cups (3.2-ounce envelope) dry NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Instant Nonfat Dry Milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

PLACE fruit, dry milk, water, ice, sugar and vanilla extract in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



I made a smaller version of this using canned mango, frozen raspberries and pineapple-orange juice instead of the water and half the sugar. I make a lot of smoothies, but this one gets more mmmmmmmmmms! And it doesn't have the powerded milk taste! Just very creamy and delicious!

Outrageous Smoothies

Since I've found this recipe I've made strawberry smoothies. My adult daughter loves yogurt and yogurt drinks. This is so much better & healthier not to mention the irresistable taste & flavor you get. You also get to add ingredients specifically to your liking! Thanks!!
