Happy Memorial Day!!!
Hi Everyone! Hope your having a great weekend! Mine has been pretty good! Hubby and I went to breakfast on Sunday and it was fantastic! Sometime, I’ll have to take a picture of my meal, it’s amazing!!! After that we came home and did some work on my computer, while Hubby put the sprinkler system into my vegetable garden. Yah!!! Made a quick dinner on the grill, nothing fancy and than made this!!!
This is my Skinny version of a Strawberry Milkshake. It was heavenly!! It’s so creamy, sweet and full of bursting strawberry flavor. It was amazing! I felt like a kid drinking it. Want to know a secret? I never had a strawberry milkshake before, even as a kid. I always got vanilla or chocolate. I must of been some kind of weird kid or something? Anyway, I asked Hubby to take a sip and he didn’t want to, and I said come on, and than he did and he was like thats good, and it’s skinny? Of course dear, I try to cut back on calories wherever I can. I think he was pleasantly surprised.
I made this bad boy with frozen strawberries, non-fat milk, a packet of Stevia and 1/3 cup of vanilla ice cream. Now I know I could of made it even skinnier by using something else besides real ice cream, but you know I bought it this week and had to use it. So be prepared for more ice cream recipes. I have half of a half gallon left, but that maybe gone sooner than expected, if I don’t stop spooning it in my mouth!! Just look at the frothy top. Looks like the Nestle Quick commercial with the rabbit.
I’m kind of mad at myself! I cut up a pretty red strawberry to put on top, but once I tasted this milkshake I forgot about it. Besides it was flowing over the edges and I think the strawberry would of made it spill, and I couldn’t lose any of the shake. That would be a sin! Ok, I’m making excuses, I totally forgot. I hate when I do that! You have to try this milkshake, I promise you will love it!! Love it I tell ya!!! Muah!!

Now you know I like to do a comparison stat on these kind of treats. So I took the small strawberry milkshake from Dairy Queen for my comparisons.
Dairy Queen Calories: 470, Fat: 15, Cholesterol: 50, Sodium: 220, Carbs: 70, Fiber: 0, Sugar: 59, Protein: 14
My Strawberry Shake Stats: Calories: 192.8, Fat: 4.8, Cholesterol: 20, Sodium: 160, Potassium: 126, Carbs: 28.6, Fiber: 1.6, Sugar: 23.5, Protein: 10
Wow! There’s is a small too, which my guess is 12oz. Mine is over 16oz!! Look at there Carbs and Sugar! See why I call mine skinny? So it’s Memorial Day, treat yourself and make a shake!!!
Well my Friends, I’m taking off! I just wanted to share with you my tasty creation and wish you a wonderful Memorial Day!! I’ll be spending my Monday in the kitchen baking! Woohoo!! I haven’t done that in a long time!! See ya tomorrow!
