Banana Split Shakes

Yield

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

1 small (6-inch) ripe banana
1/4 cup skim milk
5 maraschino cherries, drained
1 tablespoon light chocolate syrup
1/8 teaspoon coconut extract
4 cups low-fat chocolate frozen yogurt

Preparation

  1. Combine banana, milk, cherries, chocolate syrup and coconut extract in blender. Cover; blend on HIGH speed until smooth.
  2. Add yogurt 1 cup at a time. Cover and pulse on HIGH speed after each addition until smooth and thick. Pour into 4 glasses. Garnish with additional maraschino cherries, if desired.

Tip

For a low-fat shake, chop 3 large, peeled bananas. Place in resealable plastic bag and freeze until solid. (This is a great use for over-ripe bananas). Blend with milk, cherries, chocolate syrup and coconut extract. It will not be as thick and frosty, but will be lower in calories and fat.
