  • 1 container (6 oz.) plain low-fat yogurt (or 3/4 cup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cut-up fresh fruit of your choice (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, nectarines, peaches and/or sweet cherries)
  • 2 cups cereal of your choice (wheat bran flakes, round toasted oats, cornflakes, sweetened oat and bran, honey graham, frosted bite-sized shredded wheat biscuits or crispy corn and rice)

Directions:

  1. Peel bananas and place in medium bowl. Use fork to mash bananas.
  1. Stir yogurt, and cinnamon or vanilla into banana.
