Frozen sliced bananas work well in these shakes and help make them creamy. When bananas start to get brown, pop them in the freezer and take out as needed.
1. In a blender liquefy fruit with a small amount of the milk. Add remaining milk and yogurt; blend until smooth. If shake is too thick, add extra milk or soy beverage to achieve desired consistency.

While you can’t freeze the end result (in fact, it would take more time to thaw than prepare), this shake is an ideal way to use frozen bananas and berries. Simply thaw fruit in refrigerator the night before to soften slightly. Then peel banana and pop fruit into the blender.
The vanilla yogurt used in this shake recipe is higher in carbohydrate than most other yogurts. People with diabetes may want to choose a lower carbohydrate brand.
Make these shakes the night before and you’ll be ready for a quick morning meal to go.
These shakes are packed with bone-building calcium. People who are allergic milk or who are lactose intolerant can substitute a calcium-fortified soy beverage and soy yogurt.
