The Good News The yogurt in this frothy drink may help boost the immune system. Deanie Fox adds antioxidant-rich blackberries, which are fun to fish out of the glass.

  1. 1 pint blackberries
  2. 1/4 cup sugar
  3. 2 small seedless cucumbers—peeled, seeded and chopped
  4. 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  5. 1 cup ice cubes
  6. 2 tablespoons lime juice
  7. 6 mint leaves
  8. Pinch of salt
  1. In a bowl, lightly crush the blackberries with 1 tablespoon of the sugar.
