Banana Yogurt Ice Milk

Ice milk can satisfy cravings for ice cream without delivering excess fat, cholesterol, and calories.

Remove from freezer; let stand at room temperature 15 minutes to soften. Break into chunks. Position knife blade in food processor bowl; add banana mixture. Process until smooth. Return mixture to pan, and freeze until firm.

To serve, scoop ice milk into individual dessert bowls. Top each serving with kiwifruit, blueberries, and raspberries. Yield: 9 servings (about 98 calories per ½-cup serving).
