This bone-strengthening smoothie from New York City-based nutritionist Rachel Meltzer Warren, R.D., gets an extra punch of calcium from a surprising source—dried figs. Plus, the banana provides potassium, which helps restore electrolyte balance after a depleting workout.

Prep time

35 min.

  • 1 medium banana, frozen
  • 3 large, dried figs, stems removed and soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • ½ cup 1% milk
  • 2 tsp blackstrap molasses

Combine all ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth.
