There’s something about a creamy milkshake that seems to take us (and most of our clients) back to the days of childhood. There didn’t seem to be so much processed food and the milkshake was just ice cream and milk—and so delicious! And also it didn’t seem so, well, bad-for-you. The truth is, drinking the occasional milkshake here and there just provided a bit more fat and calories than you’d want to be getting regularly and no one really worried about it. So in honor of carefree days when a milk-shake was a bit more guilt-free, say hello to this Cinnamon Fruit “Milkshake” with the naturally delish flavors of a milkshake yet very little fat and twice the taste!
With this simple, quick and easy recipe, you can certainly have the best of both worlds—a creamy and scrumptious naturally delicious milkshake with less than 200 calories—179 in fact! Plus, it will give you a little extra boost and some healthy nutrients without weighing you down!
Psst… As you know, we love to make healthy versions of smoothies and shakes– so here’s a few more to try:
