Introduction

This combines high protein/high calcium yogurt with powerful anti-oxidant berries into a yummy dessert or snack. To maintain the pro-biotic benefits of live culture yogurt you can eat this immediately as a thick frozen shake. You can also freeze leftovers in popsicle forms for later or run the whole thing through an ice cream maker for a softer frozen treat. Please note, the freezing process freezing kills most of the live cultures in the yogurt (but it still tastes delicious!)

Ingredients

    1 container of low fat plain yogurt- 32 oz
    2 bags of frozen mixed berries- 32 oz
    1/4 C of sugar

Directions

This recipe makes 4-5 "tall-glass" servings of smoothie (good for a hearty snack). Freeze the rest as popsicles (this mixture freezes very solid), or use it in your ice cream maker to make healthy frozen yogurt.

You will need a large food processor to make the full recipe.

Put both bags of frozen berries into the food processor & add the container of yogurt. Pulse until the berries are evenly chopped up. Because the berries are frozen, you don't want the chunks too large; the strawberries especially will hurt your teeth! Add sugar to taste- my family likes it with only a quarter cup of sugar added (I prefer even less, but I like things tart ;D ) Pour it into glasses & voila!

For a quick single serving, use a mini-processor & 8 oz of berries, 8 oz of yogurt & 2 oz of sugar.

Substitutions:

Fat-free plain yogurt, or a fruit yogurt (beware of high sugar content & modify sweetener as needed)
Single variety frozen berries instead of mixed
Frozen banana or sugar substitute instead of sugar.

A note on sugar- the 1/4 cup of sugar only adds about 40 calories per serving, so don't feel guilty for using it!
