Creamy Vanilla Bean "Milkshake" with Yogurt Dipped Strawberries

So I am in this weight loss journey for the long haul and what has absolutely worked for me is making over some of my favorite food indulgences! I found a bread alternative that I like and I substitute zucchini in all of my pasta dishes. My biggest sweet craving is ice cream, especially milkshakes! I have been wanting to make a milkshake for the longest time but haven't really found anything that came close.

While I was out to Walmart to finish up on the toys and decorations for my daughter's Easter basket I headed to the grocery section to check out what I could use to make-over my milkshakes. I searched the yogurt section and noticed the  Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt. I love yogurt and ice cream so this was the perfect combination. They come in three flavors: Vanilla Bean, Mint Chocolate Chip and Raspberry Chocolate chip.



As soon as I put my toddler to bed that night I decided to use my "me"time to experiment on making a milkshake. I wanted a nice creamy vanilla shake to round out my snack I took out some fresh strawberries and paired it with the raspberry chocolate chip.

First I took a container of the Vanilla bean and popped it into the freezer. I let it freeze for about 15 minutes. I scooped out the entire container into my mini blender. It really did look like really ice cream!


Then I took half a cup of unsweetened coconut milk and pour it in with the yogurt.


I blended it until it was rich and creamy and placed it inside of this cute milk glass jar and topped it with a fun striped straw!



I had some delicious fresh strawberries so I took the raspberry chocolate chip Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt and thinned it out with a tiny bit of coconut milk. Then I poured it into a little container and used it to dip my strawberries. It was the perfect combination with the milk shake!



I took my milkshake and strawberries to the couch, put up my feet and watched my favorite reality shows that I DVR'ed. Pure bliss, and I didn't have to break my diet to do it!

  1. I am a huge milkshake fan as well and will be trying this. I've also read about substituting the zucchini for pasta but I haven't done that yet.

  2. I would definitely try the mint first! I haven't had ice cream or milkshakes in forever, but when I do it is always mint-flavored something. I will definitely be checking these out next time I'm in the food store :)

  3. That sounds great. I tend to have a sweet tooth as well and am always looking for creative options so I don't end up devouring a pint of ice cream. What? You don't do that?!? Oh well, just me I guess. :)

  4. I would definitely try them straight up first and would probably try the strawberry. I have been looking for this brand and have yet to find it--but I will keep looking. That was a brilliant idea for a milkshake!!

  6. We love milkshake here. We love to incorporate fruits too. Our favorite is mango, kiwi, and strawberries.

  7. I love mint chocolate chip ice cream, so I would love to try that one first, but, they all look good. That's a much healthier treat than a milkshake would be and less calories. It looks yummy!

  19. I thought I had commented on here but I guess it didn't work. I definitely want to try this and, although I'm never usually a fan of strawberry anything, the fresh ingredients make such a difference. This looks SO good.
