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. :)
Who would think it is so easy and guilt free to get your chocolate fix? I've made this several times in the past two days. Half a cup of skim milk adds a few calories and gives this shake a much creamier texture. Could easily be modified to vanilla shake, pumpkin pie, etc. YUM!
I been looking for a chocolate shake that is low carb. I would use fat free milkfor 1/2 cup cold water.Thanks
Fantastic! I've never had luck making recipes with cocoa before but this was simple enough for me and tasted great!
The flavor of this is terrific! Surprisingly refreshing and sweet and chocolately all at the same time. The texture of mine was very slushy, probably due to my blender (just a little personal-sized tiny blender). So for my own purposes I will maybe use one or two less ice cubes next time... but there will definitely be a next time!!
I make these all the time! I like to add some sugar free flavored syrups at times and some cinnamon! I usually double the recipe, and make a guilt free afternoon treat that is sure to not ruin my supper!
this was AWESOME!!!..i'm sipping this right now and just can't put it down. This is such a yummy shake that actually has such good chocolate flavor. At first I was skeptical about the flavor considering its just cocoa, water and sweetener and figured i would have to add some sugar-free choc. syrup but after one sip of this deliciousness you have made me a TRUE ADDICT. think i'm guna go make myself shke number two!!!
I used this recipe and it was great. I doubled it and added some crushed mint that I had in my spice rack.... all I can say is that I wont be headed to the snowball stand this summer... just to the kitchen.
Wow I Loved this! It solves the chocolate cravings and is practally calorie free since your body also has to use energy to warm it up. Thanks for the recipe!!!
This was simple to make and very satisfying. I used the recommended amt. of sweetener and it was fine. I substituted Droste unsweetened baking chocolate, so the calorie count was 32 calories per tablespoon.
