Stir gently, then serve immediately while still fizzy and cold.
The cranberry fizz is another bubbly drink that’s packed with flavor. Similar to the pomegranate prosecco, this cocktail contains 100 calories per glass and is made by mixing one ounce of fresh lemon juice, two ounces of plain or vanilla low-fat yogurt; four ounces of chilled club soda or sparkling water; six ice cubes in a blender then blend on high speed until smooth. Pour into tall glasses (12 oz), garnish if desired. Use a slice of lime for extra tanginess.
