Chocolate smoothies, yum! I don’t know about you but I am a big time chocolate lover but most chocolate smoothies are high in fat and calories. Here is a recipe for a chocolate malt type smoothie that you can enjoy guilt free!
3 Tbsp of Carnation chocolate malted milk powder
1 c. skim milk
2 scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt (fat-free)
4 ice cubes (crushed)
First crush the ice cubes in your blender. If you don’t have a blender that has the power to crush ice you can reserve the cubes and add them in later, their purpose is mainly for chilling the smoothie. Blend together the crushed ice and the remaining ingredients until smooth. This makes about 2 cups or two servings and is approximately 190 calories.
This chocolate smoothie recipes is an awesome replacement for a chocolate milkshake and tastes just like the smoothies you buy at fast food joints. Not only is this recipe a money saver it is a calorie saver. The kids won’t know the healthy difference and will think they are getting the same sweet treat.
Smoothies are very refreshing on a hot summer day or anytime for that matter. They are a great way to eat healthy since you can often hide healthy ingredients in a smoothie, even vegetables! With vegetable smoothies or green smoothies you can disguise the taste of the veggies by combining them with fruit. The fruit taste will dominate the smoothie. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy eating healthy and also so easy to make. Just toss your ingredients into a blender and press the button. Chocolate smoothies are a great alternative to chocolate milkshakes. Try this recipe and enjoy!
