Milkshakes for moms
You can make a delicious, frosty milkshake for yourself, your mom or someone else to celebrate Motherís Day. Best of all, you can adapt the following recipe to suit most anyoneís dietary restrictions, and you donít have to be a skilled chef to prepare it. The basic recipe also may be varied with add-ins or toppings.
Start with the basic healthy milkshake recipe. You need frozen milk ice cubes (about 1 cup of your favorite milk beverage), 1/2 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt of your choice (lactose free or low lactose), 1/4 tsp. powdered stevia, 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract and pinch of salt.
Blend up a storm in your Vitamix or other heavy-duty blender. You may have to tap it down a bit. Pretty soon, you'll have a delicious frosty.
Now, you can jazz it up a bit if you want. For instance, make it a chocolate milkshake. Use the same recipe above but add in 2 T. cocoa powder and 1 T. seed or nut butter of your choice.
Or how about trying cookie dough?
Make one batch of healthy frosty ice cream + 1 T. of your favorite seed or nut butter.
Make one batch of cookie dough: mix 1 cup nut or seed butter, 1/2 cup coconut oil or ghee, 3 T. almond flour (or substitute more safe seed or nut butter), stevia to taste, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. vanilla powder; freeze in bite-size pieces on a parchment-covered baking sheet.
Mix in 1 T. cookie dough, 1 T. chocolate chips such as Enjoy Life and 1 cup healthy frosty ice cream for your treat.
Another personal favorite is Brownie Cookie Dough.
You need one batch of healthy frosty ice cream + 1 T. cocoa powder.
Now, how about adding some mix-ins? Prepare one batch of brownie cookie dough.
Mix 1 T. almond butter (or other seed or nut butter), 2 T. almond flour (or more seed or nut butter), 2 T. coconut oil, 2 T. ghee (or replace with 2 T. coconut oil), 1 T. cocoa powder, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, pinch of salt, 1/4 tsp. vanilla powder, stevia to taste. Tip: soften the coconut oil and ghee. Spoon the mixture into a small loaf pan and place in the fridge for firming up. Then, cut into bite-sized pieces.
Mix in 1 T. brownie cookie dough bites and optional 1 T. chopped almonds per 1 cup of healthy milkshake mixture.
