Quick and healthy dessert

So I don't eat too much dairy but I still like things like ice cream and milkshakes and...well...cereal. So I have switched to drinking almond milk and it is absolutely delicious. Honestly I don't know why more people don't drink it, its only 60 calories for an 8oz glass, has more calcium than milk as well as other vitamins and minerals. Tonight I decided to have an almond milk-milkshake with one of my favorite ice creams- which reminds me I need to do a post on those, I have a lot of delicious dairy-free, gluten free, and low-fat ice cream favorites. So I was in the mood for something to satisfy my sweet tooth tonight but since we had such a heavy dinner, I wanted something a little lighter. So I concocted this milkshake. Here ya go!

Coffee Fudge Brownie Peanut Butter Milkshake
(Serves 2)

1/2 C Almond Milk (or regular if you'd like)
1 C Breyers Smooth and Dreamy 1/2 the Fat Coffee Fudge Brownie Ice Cream
2 T Peanut Butter (for protein, duh!)

Place all ingredients in small bowl and mix until well combined. Pour into two glasses and enjoy. You can also use an immersion blender, but mixing in a bowl works just as well too.

  1. That sounds delicious! What does that milk taste like?

  2. Hey Allison! It was delicious! The best way to describe what Almond milk tastes like is if you've ever drank the milk left in the bowl after you've eaten your cheerios lol. Its slightly sweet and slightly nutty but VERY yummy. When I eat it with cereal, I really can't even tell it apart from regular milk. :)
