Sooooooooo Good On a Hot Day

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.
