Better For You Chocolate Milkshake
For years I used food as my solace, my peace, my stress-relief. It is a wonder that I didn't weigh 500 pounds. And milk-shakes were one of my favorite treats.
I have since found that I enjoy running so much more for stress relief and I completely bypass any side of guilt that comes with the usual junk-food comfort.
And here is your proof. Decadent desserts can still be so without all of the extras (and that guilt that we just don't need in our lives). Do yourself a favor, please! Take the extra time to make it yourself! Then at least you know what it in it and you can enjoy your treat and feel good about yourself too.
I hope you try this one!
Dark Chocolate Milkshake
1/2 c homemade Dark Chocolate Ice Cream (or use a sugar free ice cream/frozen yogurt instead)
1/4 - 1/2 c cold skim or light soy milk (or a milk alternative)
1 square 70% + dark chocolate (I used 85%) (plus extra to shave on the top)
Put all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a chilled, pretty glass (this step is important- your food should look good to) and top with shaved dark chocolate. Enjoy!
