Each Sunday, I thank my readership for their loyalty and dedication to my blog, by providing a healthy recipe. To those that know, this is a healthy repeat, but for those that are unaware and are new to the blog, this is my way of “giving back.” It is also a way to “Pay it Forward.” Each Sunday, not only will you have a healthy recipe, but you will have an expert in the field of dietetics, food and nutrition, provide the healthy recipe to you. It is my pleasure to provide for you this week, my colleague Jan Patenaude, and her recipe: “Sneaky” Cream-Cicle Smoothie.

- Mix equal portions milk and orange juice. Blenderize with 1-2 ice cubes. Serve.
(The sneaky part is young children never see this as just 1/2 milk/1/2 orange juice. They think it's a real treat and enjoy getting their milk and a fruit serving.)
