Skinny Shake








Ingredients:

 3/4 c almond milk
approximately 15 ice cubes
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 banana

Directions:
Put all the ingredients into a blender and whip is up. It's delicious!

It's suppose to taste like Wendy's Frosty. I never had a Frosty at Wendy's so I couldn't tell you if it tasted like it. 

It's 145 calories per glass/ Wendy's Jr. Frosty 200

recipe from Just a Pinch

  2. I agree Myra, chocolate is a food group right? I like Almond milk. I have to try this and this could very well replace a dinner meal. Thanks Linda

  5. We love Wendy's frosties! I can bet that in addition to the calorie difference, Wendy's frosties don't have bananas and do have lots of fake stuff.
    I have an award for you on my blog, Linda!

    1. Hi Marie! Thank you so much for stopping by. I started making lots of healthy goodies and hope you try a few. Congrats on the weight loss. I also need to take off weight. Is SO hard when you get older! On my little Wii scale I'm usually 0.04 up or 0.02 down. Never a pound!

      Now I'm going over to Flashback & Friendship Party- hope you stop again.

      Linda
