I have to share my fave diet dessert of the moment. I call it the Fake Shake. It tastes like a fudge pop and even my hubby and daughter love it! It’s fat free and very low calorie, about 165 per serving or 230 for the whole batch. I made it up one day when I my sweet tooth was going to explode and I’ve been making it all summer long.
Chocolate Fake Shake
Makes 2 servings
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder (20 cals)
12 packets of sweetener (0 cals)
1/2 tsp. vanilla (0 cals)
24-28 ice cubes (depending on size) (0 cals)
1 cup greek plain non fat yogurt (130 cals)
1 cup coconut soy milk (almond or regular milk work too) (80 cals)
Optionals: protein powder, oats, malted milk
Place cocoa powder and sweetener in the blender first and then the other ingredients on top. Blend, blend, blend! It takes me a few minutes to get it all blended into creamy, chocolatey, deliciousness. It’s a loud process, but so worth it. I don’t usually add in any extras, but my husband likes it with malt, and my daughter likes chocolate chips sometimes.
This is a must try recipe! It makes a giant glass and it perfect for those watching their waistlines. Of course the whipped cream and cherry are also optional 🙂
Ok, onto my training update. Not as exciting as guilt free chocolate shakes, so I’ll keep it short :). Yesterday was just a quick 3 mile run and today was an 8 miler. Both runs were good, no issues. Tomorrow is REST DAY!!
