Oh how I love desserts! One of my favorite ways to enjoy a little “me moment” of indulgence, is to curl up with my favorite book and a deliciously sweet treat. Ice cream is certainly one of my favorites to enjoy. However, there are times when I want something sweet and yummy but would like a “better for you” alternative. This is why I was super excited to discover Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt!
Now I love my ice cream milkshakes. I make them for dessert all the time, and I admit… they probably aren’t the best treat for me. Müller® Yogurt though is quite nutritious. I love that they offer a variety of flavors inspired by some of my favorite ice creams, such as Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean.
Want to know a great alternative to an ice cream shake? A Raspberry Chocolate Skinny Smoothie made with Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt! These smoothies are great to enjoy at any time. Whether you’d like a touch of indulgence to start your morning, a delicious afternoon snack, or as an after dinner treat that has a balance of taste and nutrition… you can feel good about eating dessert first!
So what makes Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt a great alternative? This yogurt is an excellent source of source of protein with 7g. Plus Müller® contains less sugar than other yogurts out there, and only is 190-210 calories.
I love that my local Walmart Supercenter not only has affordable prices, but there is a HUGE fresh produce section. I can always find the fresh fruit and spinach I need for my smoothies. It was there at Walmart that I discovered Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt. Want to check them out for yourself? Simply look for the refrigerated “Dairy” section.
Raspberry Chocolate Skinny Smoothie
1 Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt – Raspberry Chocolate Chip flavored
6-8 ice cubes
1 cup of fresh raspberries
1/2 cup of fresh raw spinach
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Once you have all the ingredients above, grab your blender! Now I like to add in my ice cubes and yogurt first. Blend that together using the ice breaker mode or higher to mix the ice and yogurt together.
Once those ingredients are blended well, add in the spinach and raspberries. I love that both spinach and raspberries are a great sources for dietary fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin K. Feel free to add a few chocolate chips now. I usually wait till the end to add them in, but as you can see in the image below, my three year old decided some chocolate chips had to go in right then and there! Don’t forget to make sure you purchase the dark chocolate chips. Dark chocolate contains iron and antioxidants.
While the fruit and spinach is blending with the ice and yogurt mix, break apart your banana into smaller pieces. Keep in mind that bananas are a great source for potassium, and contain vitamin C. One by one, drop those pieces into the blender, adding in your chocolate chips afterward. Keep blending till you’ve reached your desired texture.
Be careful though. You may want to keep a watchful eye over your smoothie! These bad boys are so delicious, if you turn your back for even a minute, a little smoothie thief might start taking some sips!
Once I’ve safely kept my smoothie out of the reach of all others, I grab one of my favorite books and head out onto my porch for a much needed “me moment”. See, as mom who works outside of the home, I have a full day of work, then another couple of hours of errands, and then of course I have to pick up my son from school and come home to make us a well-balanced dinner. By the end of the evening, I am quite ready for that special “me moment”. Thank you Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt for making those moments just a little more special.
