When You Wanna Shake

As I continue to challenge myself by making healthier choices I am becoming more aware of my weaknesses. One of my weaknesses is chocolate, and not the dark stuff. I’m talking MILK CHOCOLATE.

I remember when I was in graduate school I would go to McDonald’s and buy fries and a chocolate milkshake. Then McDonald’s came out with those darn frappe’s and I would get a mocha frappe and fries. I’ve weaned myself from the Golden Arches, but I will never let chocolate go. I just have to find healthier options to feed my habit (I won’t call it an addiction).

My friend Danielle told me about dark chocolate almond milk. Now, I must warn you. A serving is 17g of sugar. I can’t have a cup more than a few times a week, but when I do, I make it count!

When you wanna shake up your life, try a chocolate shake!

1 cup of dark chocolate almond milk, frozen banana chunks, and 1-2 TBS of peanut butter is all you need.

This will give you chocolate heads your fix. Enjoy!
