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.
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
Tip: Make the Fignana smoothie vegan by opting for soy, coconut, or almond milk and yogurt.
