Dreamsicle Shake

1/2 cup light vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt (80 -100 calories)

20g whey protein isolate, microfiltered (70 calories, 18g protein)

3/4 cup frozen strawberries (about 50 calories)

Diet orange soda or water (about 1/2 cup more or less depending on how thick you want your shake)

1/2 single serve packet orange drink mix (such as Crystal Light), or to taste

200 calories (or 1 shake and 1 fruit on “The Simple Diet”)

Blend all ingredients in personal or standard size blender.

For an even more decadent treat, shave a small amount of dark chocolate before blending.  I allow myself one square of Dove dark chocolate Promises per day.  One individually wrapped square contains 42 calories, and I find half a square perfect for one shake.  If your blender has a strong motor you can put the whole (or half) square of chocolate in, but I use a paring knife to shave the chocolate into my Sonoma Kucina personal blender cup.
