Ingredients

1 mango stoned, peeled and chopped
1 orange
100g California Prunes roughly chopped
100g low fat natural yoghurt
200ml semi-skimmed milk

Prune It is a healthy eating campaign designed to educate consumers to understand the role that California Prunes can play in helping to help reduce the fat and sugar content across a wide range of recipes.  When blended into a puree, prunes offer a useful fat replacer in cooking by adding fat-like (but fat-free) characteristics that also work to enhance the flavours in both sweet and savoury dishes.  In addition, the naturally occurring sugars present in California Prunes can also be used to provide a natural replacement for some of the processed sugars that traditionally feature in sweet recipes.  And because of their high fibre content and ability to add bulk to dishes, California Prunes also have a role to play in reducing portion size without compromising on filling power or taste.

Instructions

Grate the rind of the orange then cut off the peel and cut into segments – do this over a bowl to catch the juice.

Place the orange rind and segments in a blender with the remaining ingredients, including the juice, and whiz until smooth.

Pour and drink immediately.
