In the Boston, MA area, yogurt that I like are hard to find. I finally picked the Fage yogurt that I find great for cooking and even eating like a normal yogurt. Can be found at Whole Foods

Milk shake banana-strawberries

I improvise with recipes. This one is very easy, pretty excellent and healthy!

You need for one person:
- 4 strawberries
- 1 banana
- 1/2 yogurt -- I am in the US, so I take the Fage greek yogurt that can be found at whole foods. I get either the 2% or 0%. The 0% works actually really well for milk shakes.
- 1 mug of soy milk --plain with no sugar added, for taste purpose only
- 4 cubes of ice

You put all these ingredients in the blender, and your milk shake is ready and yummy!!!
