Ingredients

  • 1 quart blueberries
  • 2/3 cup sliced ripe banana, (1 medium)
  • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup instant-dissolving sugar
  • 1/4 cup frozen orange-juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon crème de cassis, or black currant syrup

Preparation

  1. Puree blueberries in a food processor. To remove skins, force the puree through a fine strainer into a bowl.
  2. Add bananas to the food processor and puree. Add the strained blueberry puree, yogurt, sugar, orange-juice concentrate and crème de cassis or black currant syrup and process just until mixed in. If necessary, chill until cold.
