  • Vanilla Yoghurt. It's natural and low fat.
  • Some Blueberries.
  • Some Strawberries.
  • 3-4 Waffle Ice cream Cones.
  • Wash the strawberries and then slice it in triangular pieces.
  • Wash the blueberries.
  • Take a waffle cone. First add some vanilla yoghurt, around  a spoonful. Then add some fruit, and another dollop of yoghurt. Finally put a  top layer of fruit. For best taste, it's recommended to have two layers of fruit and yoghurt.
  • Now it's time to put the cones in freezer. Keep them in the freezer for about 1 hour. It will ensure that they are well chilled but not frozen.

Smoothies

Find vanilla yoghurt too plain? You can use yoghurt smoothies instead of plain vanilla yoghurt to suit your taste. Making yoghurt smoothies are fun and easy.

The first thing you will need is a quality blender which can chop ice cubes. For making smoothie first add some fruit juice in the blender. Then add almost an equal amount of vanilla yoghurt, and some frozen fruits. Add some ice cubes and then blend the mixture until smooth. 

You can experiment with various frozen fruits and fruit juices till you get your ideal smoothie recipe.

Frozen fruit cubes

Next time while planning to make some smoothies, use your ice tray to freeze fruit juices and have frozen fruit cubes at hand. The texture of the smoothie will be even better.

Diet Smoothie

Are you a diet junkie? You can alter the ingredients a bit and have your own diet smoothies. Sunflower seeds and banana are excellent additives for diet type smoothies. Use non fat yoghurt instead of regular. And for fruits, use apple juice and blueberries. To increase nutritional value, you can add additives like protein powder to your smoothie.

Note: Keep in mind though that your smoothie should not have a very strong flavour. The cones are best enjoyed with plain vanilla yoghurt or smoothies with a  subtle flavour, otherwise, strong flavours overwhelm the natural taste of fruits.
