In the early 20s Natalie Olivieri was watching his wife can tomatoes, when he got the idea to create a bottled chocolate drink with a long shelf life while. When New York Yankee great Yogi Berra later met Natale and tasted his drink he was an instant fan, and helped raise funds to make Yoo-hoo a national success.

I cloned this drink in the first book, Top Secret Recipes, but have since discovered an improved technique. Using a blender to mix the drink, as instructed in that first recipe, adds too much unnecessary foam. So here now is the revised Yoo-Hoo chocolate drink recipe that you shake to mix.

Better the second day in the frig. For those expert yoohoo drinkers that swear yoohoo has *no* milk or dair, look it up on the website. It has both milk by products and nonfat dry milk.

Yoohoo contains no dairy, and it really messes up this recipe. Beyond that it doesn't taste even remotely like yoohoo
