Fruity Dairy Smoothie – Recipe

The United States has been celebrating National Dairy Month dating back to 1937. Designating June as Dairy Month started out as a way to distribute more milk during the summer months. In Idaho we produce a variety of dairy products – from shelf-stable milk for your kitchen pantry to yogurt and cheese for your fridge.   

Dairy contains a wide variety of nutrients and fats that are helpful for bone health, prevention of cardiovascular disease, and other conditions. Dairy is full of nutrients such as protein, calcium, phosphorus, B vitamins, and potassium. The nutrients found in dairy, combined with an active lifestyle, boost strong bone density and decrease the chance of osteoporosis.  

The USDA’s recommended daily consumption of dairy is 3 cups. Dairy includes a lot of healthy nutrients, but they also include saturated fats, which should be consumed in moderation. Even though saturated fats include “bad” LDL cholesterol they also contain “good” HDL cholesterol needed in our diet. The American Heart Association recommends having no more than 7% of calories from saturated fats daily.
