Recipe: Chocolate-caramel-brownie shake

Chocolate-caramel-brownie shake
2 scoops PD Alpine Chocolate
1 cup ff Lactaid milk
1 shot Torani sf caramel syrup
4 Joseph's sf brownie bites
Ice cubes

Blend liquid ingredients until smooth, add brownies with ice cubes and pulse until same thickness as a Dairy Queen Blizzard (I use an entire tray of ice cubes).

It's important to note that this is not a low-calorie meal. This was yummy, but I would not add the brownie bites in the future -- they add 100 calories and 14g of carbs, which isn't worth it for the minimal flavor boost. Also, I typically use ff Lactaid milk, but dh brought home reduced fat and I didn't realize it. So, the reduced fat milk has 130 calories per cup, versus only 80 for the ff version. The caramel syrup has no nutritional value for a 1-oz. serving.

So, here's the stats for what I actually drank this morning, though you could easily cut 150 calories by making the substitutions mentioned above:

Calories: 420
Protein: 49
Carbs: 38
Fat: 10
