What is a “skinny” shake? I had never heard of a “skinny” recipe until I joined pinterest.com (shout out to my sister who got me hooked on Pinterest). It means that the recipe has low calories, low fat, or is simply a healthier version of an original recipe. I learn something new everyday. 🙂
I’ve been addicted to eating muffins for breakfast lately so I’m trying very hard to incorporate healthy meals and snacks for the rest of the day. After all, bathing suit season is right around the corner.
Here enters the pretty pink drink. It’s my new best friend after I’ve come back from a run around the neighborhood. Hello, friend. 😉
Skinny Strawberry Chocolate Shake Recipe
- 1 cup of ice
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
- 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoon chocolate syrup (I used Hershey’s)
- Put all of the ingredients into a blender and mix well.
Berries are so healthy and the perfect ingredient to incorporate into a skinny shake. You can use blueberries, raspberries, or black berries as alternatives to the strawberries for this delicious drink.
I wanted to sweeten up this shake a bit so I added a touch of chocolate syrup. Feel free to omit it if you want to have an even lower calorie treat. But I love my chocolate and a little bit here was okay in my book. 🙂
What are your favorite healthy snacks?
