Recipe Alert! Chocolate Milk Shake!

Do you love chocolate? Silly question.

Here is how I make myself a little chocolate treat without ruining my day while getting in some protein!

This is my recipe: It contains 117 calories, 3.5 g fat (the good kind), 3g fiber, 13.1g protein

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup  Chobani Non-fat Greek Yogurt (I use 1/2 container which is actually a little less than 1/2 cup).
  • 1 cup  unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I prefer trader Joe’s but others are fine) You can use skim milk or soy milk but you’ll have to adjust the calories a bit.
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (hershey’s or trader joes is what I use).
  • Optional* if you decide it is not sweet enough, you can add 2 tbsp of nonfat french vanilla coffee mate cream or 1 tspn of agave nector. Again you will need to adjust the calories.

Directions:

Pour all ingredients into a blender with a handful of ice- enough to achieve desired thickness. Blend away.

You can top with a dollop of light whipped cream. I suggest either Cabot’s or Reddi whip (cool whip has hydrogenated corn syrup)


Be well!

    Life is not complete without unsweetened vanilla almond milk. :-). I’ll be trying this at home. Maybe adding a tablespoon of PB2? Yum!
