Dulce de Leche Smoothie

Taste is rich and divine, but good for you and light on calories and fat!


I'd just made some dulce de leche and was looking for a different way to use it.  Also had a tub of low-fat vanilla yogurt I figured I'd better use before it spoiled or got pushed to the back of the fridge--or BOTH.

So I came up with this.  WONDERFUL!!!  It was SO good, I drank the both of these after I finished photographing it, even though I promised myself I'd "save one for later."  YEAH RIGHT!!!


I did try the last one with a little coconut coffee creamer added to see how it tasted.  Very good, but I'm a coconut head anyway.  Your mileage may vary and it's plenty good without the addition of anything coconut flavored.  If you'd like to try that, I used about 1 tbs or so of the coconut flavored creamer, but about 1/8 tsp of coconut extract would probably be just about right.


Dulce de Leche Smoothie



  • 1 cup low-fat yogurt, plain or vanilla
  • 2 tbs dulce de leche
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (any variety will do, I used whole)


Combine all ingredients in a very deep cup.  I used the plastic cup that comes with my immersion blender.  I suggest you do as well.  It could get messy otherwise.


Process with immersion blender until dulce de leche is combined well, maybe about 1 minute.


Pour into glasses and serve immediately.


Makes 2 servings.
