Cherry Smoothie

Serves 3

2 cups fresh sweet cherries, pitted
1 cup ice, cracked
1 cup plain lowfat yogurt
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth.

Tip: Vanilla-flavored yogurt may be substituted for unflavored yogurt, sugar and vanilla.

Frozen-pitted sweet cherries can be substituted. Or, 1 can (16 to 17 oz.) pitted dark or light sweet cherries, drained, can be substituted for the fresh cherries.
