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!
