Phase 2 Chocolate Shake
1 cup skim milk
1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
2 teaspoons chocolate (or chocolate fudge) sugar-free pudding mix
Blend well, for one to two minutes, in a blender, then add some ice cubes, a little at a time, and blend until ice is crushed and of a good consistency, to make it “icy.”
The ricotta gives it richness. The pudding makes it thicken.
You could substitute low fat or nonfat cottage cheese for the ricotta.
Variations: Add 2 teaspoons peanut butter and/or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and top with some RediWhip.
