First of all, we just want to say we are very sorry for not having posted in so long! Our finals were this past week. To make up for it, we are sharing perhaps our greatest kitchen creation yet: the healthy chocolate shake! We did this one numerous times until we perfected the recipe, so hopefully you LOVE it as much as we do!
Actually, funny story...we were trying to do a Wendy's Frosty copycat recipe (we tried several we found on Pinterest) and did not really have success with the ones we actually had all the ingredients for. I was too impatient to wait for our next trip to the grocery store, so I started experimenting with "healthy" versions of the recipe (because we had the ingredients for the healthy crap) and we still weren't happy with the results. But I did like the consistency, so I adapted it to keep the consistency, but change it up to get a better flavor (or a flavor at all, really). And we both really ADORE the flavor. It is so, so, so good! Not Wendy's Frosty good, but equally good in its own department!
Here is the recipe:
1 cup almond milk
4 heaping Tbsp. fat free cool whip
1 scoop (36 grams) vanilla protein powder
2 Tbsp vanilla
1 Tbsp natural, unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups ice
Toss all the ingredients into a blender (in order), and blend on the "ice cream" setting, so it will come out nice and "milkshakey!" You can sprinkle a few chocolate chips if you want.
*Most of the flavor comes from the protein powder, so make sure the powder you use is yummy! We used the CytoSpot 100% Whey Protein Vanilla Powder (which is by far the yummiest we have ever had, and the perfect addition to any smoothie)!
This stuff is so good for you, as it's packed with proteins and vitamins, and so delicious!
Thanks for reading, happy blending! :)
