Strawberry “Milkshake”

We love a good milkshake. In fact, we went through a nearly 8-month-long phase when we were kids where we requested a milkshake every night for dessert.  And to be honest, who could blame us? 🙂 There’s just something so satisfyingly delicious about a rich, creamy milkshake.  So we’re always creating smoothies and shakes when we get a craving for one that have just a fraction of the calories of the real deal!  (Have you tried our Healthy Chocolate Shake or our Cinnamon Fruit Milkshake, just to name a couple?).

This strawberry milkshake is a great summer treat, without the extra fat! With whole strawberries and frozen yogurt, you can have a diner milkshake experience right at home–only guilt-free!  Plus, since eight strawberries have more vitamin C than an orange, this decadent dessert is not only good for boosting immunity, but it’s great for your skin, too, since vitamin C assists in collagen formation.  Plus, the antioxidants, fiber and phytonutrients in strawberries have been found to reduce total cholesterol levels. Yup, we’re pretty psyched to bring you all these health benefits in a decadent-tasting treat.  So don’t be shy, grab a spoon and dig in! 🙂
