I’ve surprised even myself this past month. I’ve been sticking with my goal to eat better this year, and I love that my decision to eat healthier is rubbing off on my kids. My kids would probably eat junk food (when they remembered to feed themselves) if left to their own devices. One of my jobs as a mom is to make sure that they have plenty of good options to eat and drink so they don’t go reaching for the bad stuff whenever their tummies start to rumble.
My kids, like their mama, have a sweet tooth, and so I’m always on the look out for tasty but nutritious options to satisfy their (ahem…OUR) cravings for sweets. TruMoo is one of our favorite healthy and delicious indulgences. My kids love TruMoo’s great chocolatey taste and I love that it has no artificial growth hormones and no high fructose corn syrup. TruMoo is fresh from your trusted dairy.
Not every debate with your kids has to be hard. Like TruMoo—it’s delicious and nutritious so everyone wins.
This past week, I picked up TruMoo’s Limited-time Chocolate Marshmallow milk at the grocery store. The kids were excited to see that TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow tastes great cold OR heated (it’s like an instant mug of hot chocolate…it’s amazing!). I decided to see if I could come up with a fun recipe using the new flavor and oh-my-goodness! I discovered something amazing. You’re going to love it!
Easy and Light Cookies and Cream Chocolate Milkshake
This recipe gives you the taste of a special-occasion milkshake without having to consume all of the fat that’s in ice cream. I’m definitely going to be using this simple, easy-to-customize recipe often!
- 1 1/2 cups TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk (Limited Edition)
- 3 Chocolate sandwich cookies
- Whipped cream to top
- Freeze 1 cup of TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk in an ice cube tray (1 cup filled my ice cube tray almost perfectly).
- Remove frozen TruMoo cubes from tray and add to a blender, along with 3 chocolate sandwich cookies and an additional 1/2 cup milk (not frozen).
- Blend until smooth.
- Top with some whipped cream, grab a straw, and enjoy your low fat milkshake!
One thing I loved about the milkshake was how perfectly the marshmallowy flavor of the TruMoo combined with the cookies. It was an ideal marriage of cookies and cream, which makes it a delicious option for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Finding the right balance between happy and healthy is never easy. That’s why there’s TruMoo.
