I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are as excited as I am to be heading into fall.
Fall means school is in full gear (I'm starting my 3rd year of grad school - where does the time go?!), beautiful weather, and pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING. I am so excited. I loooove pumpkin.
Anyway this post has nothing to do with pumpkin, so I'll get down to business: this is a super delicious recipe that is only 49 calories per GIANT milkshake!
The reason it's so low in calories is that it uses the same magical ingredient as my Skinny Mocha Frappuccino - xanthan gum.
Xanthan gum is an amazing thickener for smoothies, milkshakes, and sauces that adds almost no calories! You can read more about it in my Skinny Mocha Frappuccino post.
Anyway, this milkshake is sooo yummy and has been one of my go-to's this summer. You may have seen me post about it on Instagram a few months ago! (PS - have you followed me on Insta yet?!)
I love to be able to have a humongous chocolate milkshake whenever I feel like it - this is the perfect recipe for those times, whenever they may arise.
For me, that happens quite often! Enjoy!
