And I blended.
And shook the cup and blended some more.
The mixture was really thick so I added another 1/4 cup+ of Almond milk.
(The “+” is because I had just over a 1/4 cup left and went a head and finished off the carton! 😂😂😂)
I blended some more.
Taste test time!
Ok, still really think and oh my goodness was that a chocolate overload!
And not in a good way!
And I’m out of almond milk, so I add some water. And then a scoop of vanilla protein powder. My thinking was that the vanilla would help off-set the bitter chocolate (cause 1/3 a banana wasn’t near enough sweetener!!) and to help keep the shake thicker after I added water…
It worked!! So while the recipe wasn’t all that spot-on for me, with a few modifications I made it work! By the time I modified it, the caloric count was 234, which isn’t bad considering I had a scoop of protein in there! It was simple enough I’ll be making this me again!
Oh, and well, I wouldn’t ever mistake it for a Wendy’s Frosty, it was really tasty, and 160 calories less (it would have been 260 calories less, but again, protein powder!!)
