Mango Milkshake

Ever since I got off work this evening, I’ve been in the kitchen baking away!

I have an amazingly delicious recipe to share with you, but it’ll have to wait until tomorrow, as I still need to photograph the finished product and it requires overnight refrigeration. Stay tuned! 😀

Since I cannot bake anything without eating copious amounts of batter, I naturally filled up on sweet batter before dinner.

Though I felt full, I knew that my batter consumption didn’t exactly qualify as dinner. Ryan and I initially planned to enjoy pork for dinner, but my sweet tooth was sparked and all I wanted was more sweets.

I decided to make us mango milkshakes for dinner, but made a couple of tweaks to make ‘em healthier.

First, instead of full-fat vanilla ice cream, I used low-fat Haagen-Dazs vanilla frozen yogurt.

I added frozen mango, milk and vanilla protein powder to the mix to round out the shake.

The result was a thick, creamy and perfectly sweet milkshake.

In the summertime, a cold milkshake is sometimes the perfect dinner. 😀

    Yum! That shake looks scrumptious!! One of my favorite shakes to make is a mocha protein one, because it satisfies both my need for caffiene and love of chocolate at once. I just use a scoop of choc. protein powder, some milk or yogurt, lots of coffee and a couple of ice cubes!!!! Sooooo good!!!!! I just love getting new ideas for recipes!!

    I’m hoping you made the peanut butter bars that you’re girlfriends made for your bachelorette party. They sounded delicious and I can’t wait for the recipe!!

    Magoes blended into anything are SO good!! I especially love them with frozen bananas, mmmm.

    Just wanted to say that I LOVE your approach to Mondays. It’s so easy for me to “get a case of the Mondays”, but I’m going to start thinking about them like you do. 🙂 Makes them a much happier day.

Your posts are always thoughtful and upbeat, and I am a HUGE Sadie fan…after college I’d love to get my own dog to run and walk with (and give me kisses!) on the daily.
