Big Daddy's Fruit Freezer

(NC)óReal men eat this yogurt! It's a truly fabulous frozen dessert or snack. So fast and easy that even your favourite I-hate-to-cook guy will like to make it, and so good that he'll want to make it every day. Makes one delicious man-size portion.

Ingredients and Preparation

3/4 cup (175 mL) or 175 g container vanilla yogurt

1 cup (250 mL) raspberries, blueberries or strawberries, frozen

1/2 very ripe banana, peeled and frozen

Cut banana (and large strawberries if used) into small pieces. Mix fruit with yogurt. Using a food processor or powerful hand blender, quick puree starting with a rapid on/off technique. Don't puree it too long and dig in before it melts!
