Cherry Chocolate Milkshake

An under-the-radar milkshake that won't run up the calorie count.

Although this recipe looks super-decadent, it only combines fruit and milk (or a milk substitute) to make a cooling—not to mention guilt-free—treat. If you’re not a hazelnut type of guy, replace it with reduced-fat chocolate cow’s milk or chocolate almond milk for an equally tasty swap.

Prep time

5 min.

  • 2 bananas, frozen, cut into 1-in chunks
  • 1 cup (8 fluid oz) hazelnut chocolate milk
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • ½-1 Tbsp unsweetened chocolate powder (optional, if you want more chocolate taste)

Place the bananas, hazelnut chocolate milk, cherries, and chocolate powder (if using) into a high-powered blender, and puree until creamy and smooth. Depending upon the power of your blender, you may need to add a little more milk. You want the texture to be thick like a milkshake.

 Pour into two glasses, and serve.
