I cannot tell you how happy I am to have my good friend Julie stopping by to share some deliciousness with you! Last year, I attended an online blog conference, and after the conference was all said and done, a few of us Utahns got together and met up in real life. And that is where my friendship with Julie began. Since then, we’ve chummed around at another blogging conference and of course “ran into” each other around the internet.
Julie has been inspiring to me as I’ve seen her change her thoughts about food around in the last 6 months or so. She sees the importance of enjoying food but making sure you’re making smart decisions as well. It’s all about balance. And that is where this milkshake comes into play. Julie took a regular ole’ milkshake, and made it a bit healthier for you.
Enough of my blabbing – I’ll hand it over to Julie now!
Hi. My name is Julie and I’m from Confessions of a Cooking Diva and I am thrilled to be here today.
It’s finally that time of year where we get to break out the ice cream or frozen yogurt if you’re going for something healthier.
I have a Mr. who absolutely loves milkshakes. Since he needs to watch how much fat he has in his diet, we came up with this delicious non-fat milkshake. I have to admit that it tastes just as good as the full-fat versions, but without all the guilt and calories.
The vanilla syrup in this shake can be substituted with any of the choices of syrups on the market. Great creative and have a yummy milkshake without all the guilt.
- 4 scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt
- 3/4 cup skim milk
- 2 tbsp vanilla flavoring syrup
- Blend to the thickness you like.
- Super easy and super delicious.
That sure does sound like something I could get into this summer!
