Strawberries boast fiber, have more Vitamin C than any other berry. 1 cup of fresh whole strawberries has a respectable 35 micrograms of folate, the powerful Vitamin B that creates normal red blood cells and is crucial for prenatal development. The anthocyanidins found in these ruby mouthfuls also help protect against heart disease.

  • 1/2 cup non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped mint
