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.
