This is from a very old Weight Watchers pamphlet for Week One of the diet. I love this milk shake. It's surprisingly thick and tasty.
- 1 cup skim milk or 1 cup 1% low-fat milk
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or almond extract) or 1 teaspoon instant coffee
- sugar substitute
- Place all ingredients in blender.
- Blend until all ice is crushed and milk shake is thick.
- It really does become thick.
I didn't have any instant coffee so I omitted the sweetner and vanilla and used about 2 Tbs (can adjust to your own taste) of sugar-free, fat-free white chocolate instant pudding. It was nice and thick like a milkshake and had good flavor. I don't like the aftertaste that artificial sweetners have so I usually avoid them, but this was so slight I could hardly taste it. And the best part, it stays thick and creamy.
This is great ice cold for a low calorie shake. But it is not as thick as a milk shake. Added a frozen banana will thicken it more. I did use 5 ice cubes and vanilla extract.
If you are expecting a McDonald's milkshake or Arby's- it is not going to happen. But, if you are on WW Core or Flex this will be a surprisingly wonderful treat. It is thinner then a regular milkshake, but still has a great ice cream taste. I added a little more ice and some sugar-free pudding to thicken it up. Then I topped it with lf whipped topping. I will so be making this again!
