TOPPING

Fat-free or light whipped cream, optional

-
If you buy frozen yogurt from your local yogurt shop, place in freezer until very firm, before using. This should take about an hour.

Combine all shake ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth.  Stop blender and stir with a spoon to help blend everything. Blend again for a few seconds.

Pour into a glass. Top with light whipped cream if desired and enjoy immediately. You really don’t need the whipped cream. It still tastes great without it!
