FroYo Cashew Berry Smoothie

I love me some frozen yogurt, but while a lot of these frozen yogurt places are really good (16 Handles is the best ever, btw), there is some mystery as to what exactly is in that “healthier alternative to ice cream.”  There’s also something kinda gross and fast food salad bar-like about the do-it-yourself toppings station.  Here’s a smoothie to satisfy your fro-yo craving without leaving you wondering what the hell is in it.
