4 Secrets to Making a Healthier Milkshake

Milkshakes are fun treats, but typically use an ice cream base, so if you’re concerned about the calorie count, excessive sugar, and fat content, then look no further than Healthy Little Cooks’ list of our 4 secrets to making it homemade and healthy!

 

Swap the ice cream for Greek yogurt

Greek yogurt is thick and creamy, so it will give you the feel of ice cream, plus it’ll give your milkshake a boost of protein and vitamins!

 

Use raw honey instead of sugar

Honey is an excellent substitution for sugar. It is comprised of two simple sugars: glucose and fructose, and because of how it is absorbed in the body, it allows for a slower rise in blood sugar levels compared to that of sugar.

 

Add fruit

Fruit is another great sugar substitute. It’s naturally sweet, flavorful, and full of necessary vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

 

Add in nuts

Adding in nut butter with your milkshakes (such as peanut, almond, or cashew) is a natural way to make your own homemade protein shake with all the benefits of the additional protein.
