Cocoa Shake

Seems like a lifetime ago but I use to be in Diet Workshop.  I remember drinking lots of Alba shakes to get past my sugar cravings.  I kind of liked them.   Do they even still sell these?  Hmmmm.  Well, yes, I guess they do.  Click here to order it. Wonder how I would feel about it today?

Seeing this recipe on Pinterest and the claim that it tastes like Wendy's Frosty, I knew I had to try it.  Well, I don't know what the people were sipping before they had one of these but I am sorry, it doesn't remotely taste like a Frosty to me.  Having said that, I would so make this again.  It is a light, chocolatey cold drink that goes down real nice on a hot day.  Kind of reminds me of the Alba shake.

Frosty Chocolate Drink

but not a Frosty

3 tablespoons cocoa
15 ice cubes
1 banana
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups almond milk

Whirl all the ingreidents in a blender.  You can add sugar but really it is fine without it.

Serves 3- a nice tall cool one!

I think the ingredients listed here are a 100 times better than what you would find in a wendy's frosty recipe :) I will for sure and make this!

I agree with Sonya - those ingredients are miles better for you than the frosty's at Wendy's!
