I don’t know about you, but I LOVE milkshakes.
Growing up, when my brother and I were really little, my parents use to have what we called “special night” which was every Wednesday night.
My dad would be out late playing in his pool league, and we got to stay up late to wait for him to get home — until 9 o’clock!! So late when you’re a 5 years old! My mom would make us milkshakes and popcorn, and we would stay up watching “adult” TV shows — usually The X Files! LOL 😂 — and eating popcorn and milkshakes.
Because of this, milkshakes have a very special place in my heart — and my belly!👅💦
So, sometimes, when I see those beautiful bowls on Instagram I can’t help but think how amazing it would be with my childhood favorite treat…a milkshake!
Luckily, nowadays, there are so many options now to enjoy a skinny treat AND stay on track. I made this beautiful bowl with NEW Simple Truth Low Cow Ice Cream — a low-calorie, high-protein ice cream sold exclusively at Kroger grocery stores.
This rich and creamy ice cream actually tastes like REAL ice cream without a chalky after taste. Plus, because it’s made by Simple Truth, you know it’s made from quality ingredients.
Simple Truth Low Cow Ice Cream is available in 6 flavors — Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, Sea Salt Caramel, Lemon Cake, Mint Chocolate Chip, Birthday Cake. YUM!
I blended everything up in my Vitamix, added a few more bits of chocolate with some cacao nibs, and then topped everything with some fresh bananas and strawberries, coconut, and some chia seeds.
It has all the nutritional goodness of those Insta-worthy smoothie bowls…but has the decadent creamy texture of a milkshake. YUM!!
- 1/2 cup Simple Truth Low Cow Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
- 1/4 cup milk of choice (skim, almond, coconut all work well!)
- 1 kale leaf, chopped
- 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
- 4 strawberries, sliced
- 1/2 small banana, sliced
- 1/4 teaspoon chia seeds
- In a high-speed blender, blend ice cream, milk, and chopped kale until smooth.
- Pour the milkshake in a bowl and top with cacao nibs, strawberries, banana, shredded coconut, and chia seeds. Enjoy!
