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!
