Model Friendly Milkshake – Allergen Free
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.
Vanilla milkshakes are nostalgic, delicious and underrated.
Do you remember the vanilla milkshakes we used to get as a kid with our McDonald’s happy meals? The small size alone is a whopping 530 calories and contains at least 65 grams of sugar! Yikes. That’s almost half the caloric intake for a woman trying to maintain her weight. And you already know how I feel about sugar. 😉 But I had a hankering for something “sweet” last night yet didn’t want to eat anything heavy especially before going to bed.
So here is a waaaay healthier version of the classic vanilla milkshake. It’s vegan. It’s gluten free. It’s grain free. It’s low carb. It’s low in calories. It’s super easy. And it doesn’t go straight to your hips!
All you need is your trusty blender, 1.5 cups of organic (original or vanilla) unsweetened almond milk, 1 teaspoon of alcohol free pure vanilla extract or flavouring, pure stevia (1 packet will do) and an ice cube tray. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl. Stir well. Pour into the ice cube tray (or any plastic container) and transfer into the freezer. Wait for it to firm up and freeze completely. (You’ll need patience for this.) Once the milk is frozen, blend the mixture in the blender until evenly creamy and frothy. You can add more almond milk if you want it to be thicker. You can also add another pack of stevia if you have more than one sweet tooth. If you want your milkshake to be less traditional, you can add 1 teaspoon of chia seeds, 1 scoop of protein powder, 1 tablespoon of organic cinnamon and/or fresh berries.
And they’re like it’s better than yours. Damn right, it’s better than yours.
