The Devil-Made-Me-Drink-It Dessert Smoothie
Makes 2 servings

1/2 of a 1-pint (a generous cup) black or red raspberries or blackberries (reserve a few for garnish)
1 (8-ounce) container raspberry or blackberry yogurt
1/4 to 1/2 cup nonfat or regular half-and-half
1/2 cup boysenberry or raspberry sorbet, slightly softened
2 small scoops (about 1/3 cup each) vanilla-raspberry swirl frozen yogurt or ice cream

These are creamy, like milkshakes, a beautiful deep pink if you use red raspberries, or purplish pink if you use black raspberries or blackberries. Serve for dessert, following a light dinner, such as grilled chicken salad.

In blender, puree fruit with yogurt and half-and-half. Add sorbet and blend. Pour into tall, stemmed goblets, being careful not to splash up sides. Gently place a scoop of frozen yogurt or ice cream on top of each. Garnish with a few berries.
