This Healthy Milkshake recipe features frozen yogurt rather than traditional ice cream, for a creamy treat with less guilt!
Our seven-year-old son, Collin, is currently in summer school, and since he knows how to suck up to me, one of the classes he chose to take was cooking class. With the exception of some ‘apple nachos’ drowned in caramel, sunflower seeds, and a truckload of M&Ms, he has been pretty proud of the creations he’s come home with. The caramel apple soup, err apple nachos? He said they may be a tad sweet.
So when he asked if we could blog one of his recipes, of course I said yes!
This Healthy Milkshake recipe, as it was titled at school, is one of his favorites. And after a full afternoon of yard work, I thought it would be the perfect reward for helping me with chores and not complaining.
Using frozen yogurt in place of ice cream cuts back on some calories, plus it has about half of the fat. Unfortunately, because of this, the healthy milkshake will never be as creamy as a classic milkshake. However, on a hot summer day, don't expect to hear anyone complaining!
Though they called it a "healthy milkshake", don't plan to drink one with every meal and shed pounds. It is more or less healthy in comparison to using ice cream. However, if you wish to make it healthier I recommend adding fruit, such a banana to your recipe, and skip the whipped cream topping.
You need a blender to whip this recipe up. I use this KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender, and I couldn't be happier with it. It is powerful enough for anything I throw at it, and makes easy work of these Healthy Milkshakes.
