Add fruit to blender or mixing bowl. Gently blend for about 2 seconds – just enough to break up the larger pieces of fruit so they will pass through a straw and are in a drinkable form. Pour the skinny shake into chilled beverage containers and then top with reduced fat whipped topping if desired.
You can even fold the topping into the skinny shake mixture if you wish for an even thicker shake.
