My Guilt Free Chocolate Shake

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by kate09

This is something I whipped up as a refreshing, cold, very low calorie drink. The nestle baking cocoa only has 15 calories per tablespoon and i used only about about 1/4 of that. Equal 0 calorie sweetener makes for a pleasant addition to satisfy your sweet tooth.

I made a double batch of this for myself and my husband, using half milk and half water. It was alright, but I think next time, I might try using all milk and no water. I might even try using evaporated milk to make it even thicker and creamier. I ended up adding quite a bit of extra sugar; and, when it seemed it just couldn't get enough flavor for me, I started adding chocolate syrup to it, and that helped. I guess I was just looking in the wrong place considering I wasn't after low fat. I believe that I can tweak this enough to my liking. But by the time I'm done, it won't be so healthy any more. Trust me. :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened baking cocoa (I like nestle with 15 calories per tablespoon)

  • 6 ice cubes
  • 12 cup cold water


  1. Dissolve the baking cocoa as best you can in the water and pour into blender.
  2. Add the ice cubes and sweetener and blend for about 5 minutes.
  3. The sweetener is to your personal preference. You may want to add a few packs and then taste.
