Recipes from Dannon

I'm copying a few recipes from The Dannon Kitchen so I can toss the (what do you call those? the foil seals from the top of the yogurt containers?) - anyway, so I can get those off my kitchen counter.

A couple recipes I want to try:

Banana Nut Winter Smoothie

  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1 cup Dannon® All Natural Vanilla Lowfat Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. honey (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  1. Cut the frozen banana into 3 or 4 chunks and peel. Place in blender with Dannon® All Natural Vanilla Lowfat Yogurt, walnuts, cinnamon and honey (optional).
  2. Blend on high for 2 minutes or until smooth. Pour into glass and top with a dusting of ground nutmeg. 

 Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1-1/2 qt. chicken broth
  • 1-3/4 cup Dannon® Plain Yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley or cilantro
  • 1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  1. In a soup pot heat oil. Add onions and cumin and sauté 3-4 minutes. Add potatoes and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer soup 20-25 minutes.
  2. Puree soup with 1-1/2 cups Dannon® Plain Yogurt and parsley or cilantro. Serve each portion of soup with a dollop of remaining yogurt and a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds.

and a recipe I've tried:

Layered Mexican Dip

  • 1 16 oz. can refried beans or black beans
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 2 cups DANNON® All Natural Plain Yogurt
  • 1 cup sliced olives (black or green)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  1. In a bowl, combine beans with 1/3 cup salsa. Spread half of mixture into a flat serving dish.
  2. Spread 1 cup DANNON® All Natural Plain Yogurt over the bean mixture, followed by 1/2 cup olives, 1/3 cup salsa, 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 cup lettuce.
  3. Repeat layering. Cover and chill until ready to use.

I liked the dip. I think everyone else would rather I made my regular Taco Dip, but it's good to have options. Also, while looking up these recipes, I saw several other recipes I'd like to try.  So many good-looking recipes on that Dannon Kitchen site...
