Whirl up a creamy, dairy free strawberry milkshake in seconds with three easy ingredients. Then enjoy a scrumptious dessert.
How are you doing your New Year of truly eating healthy? Are you still going strong? In order to help you achieve your goals, I’ve made the month of January recipes a theme of “tips”. First up was a soup recipe, because broth based soups are often fewer calories than a sandwich. For example, I was craving a sausage and pepper sandwich. So I made a Slow Cooker Sausage and Pepper soup instead. I got the delicious flavors of a sandwich, but I did not consume all the calories from the roll.
Next up was a Warm Steak Salad. In this case, I was craving a nice juicy steak, but the calories made it prohibitive. Instead of simply ignoring the craving, I made it into a salad. Therefore, the majority of my dinner was vegetables. Comparatively to a small serving of steak along with it. Rather than simply depriving myself of a food I was craving, I found a way to enjoy it. Plus I stayed within my calories for the day. If I had tried to ignore the craving, my mind would have been consumed by the thought of a steak, and I would eventually have given into a much larger portion.
This leads me to another “trick” I am back to implementing. It is filling my refrigerator and pantry with healthy ingredients. With this intention in mind, I headed to my local Kroger. It happens to have a fantastic Natural foods department. Here I can stock up on bulk raw nuts and whole grains, as well as natural juices, flour and non-dairy products.
Surprisingly, I first stumbled upon non-dairy products when I was looking for a low calorie heavy cream substitute. No one in my family has a lactose or dairy issue. I just wanted a quality ingredient that I could substitute for cream in my Creamed Spinach recipe. While looking in the dairy section I saw So Delicious coconut creamer. As the nutritional value was exactly what I was looking for, I bought it. Consequently I have expanded my consumption of non-dairy products such as Silk Coconut milk. It is lower calories than dairy milk and is easy to bake and cook with.
Now that I have found how delicious So Delicious and Silk products are, I use them regularly like in this non-dairy Coconut Strawberry Milkshake. You only need three ingredients to make this luscious dessert strawberry milkshake. It is creamy, dreamy and delicious. Everyone in my family loves a strawberry milkshake so this is a healthy way for us to enjoy it more often.
