Skinny Samoa Shake (only 76 calories)

So, some of you might be getting a little tired of my milkshake recipes but I can't help it!  I have been on a milkshake craze lately!  I am loving them!  With each of them only ~100 calories per serving, I am having them daily!  So, on my quest to replicate the Girl Scout cookie of skinny shakes (like I have done with the Thin Mint Shake)... let me introduce you (drum rolls) to the (sound of trumpets): Skinny Samoa Shake!!!   (Ooooh's Aaaah's)  Yes folks, I have really outdone myself this time!  This is by far my favorite one.  I can not wait for my peeps out there to try it and tell me what you think.  So fire up your blender... here it is:

Skinny Samoa Shake

1/2 cup of nonfat cottage cheese
2 Tbs of sugarfree chocolate instant Jello pudding mix
1/4 tsp coconut extract (1/2 tsp if you like it real coconuty)
1 Tbs Hersey's carmel syrup
1 cup ice
1 cup water (less water if you prefer a thicker shake)

1.  Combine all ingredients and blend until the ice is completely chopped and has the milkshake consistency.

2.  Split into 2 glasses and drink this delicious concoction with delight knowing how FEW calories it contains!

Makes 2 Servings
1 Serving = 76 calories (13g Carbs, 0g Fat and 7g Protein)

The base ingredient of this recipe is from, I added the flavor twist.

What Girl Scout cookie should I try next?!

    1. Just for you J-Fer! These shakes are Addictive!!

  2. I am really glad somebody pinned this recipe in Pinterest. I haven't tried the recipe yet but I have enjoyed reading through some of your posts. I am trying to change my focus and finally get fit again. I am encouraged by what I have read on your blog and will be back many times to see what is new.


    1. Good luck on your weight loss journey!!! I look forward to hearing some positive updates from you! :)

  3. instead of using JELLO have you tried chocolate protein powder????

  4. I found this just after making the DashingDish recipe this morning. I have pondered how to reduce the calories in those terrific recipes...
    I believe you are omiting the protein powder and changing the serving size to two because your recipes are intended to be child-appropriate?? And/or an adult "snack" rather than a meal replacement??
    Thanks for the recipes!

  5. A thought. Maybe an alternative option could be half a scoop of a chocolate protein powder OR half scoop of a chocolate meal replacement powder (full of vitamins). This might have less calories than the Jello, albeit sugarfree, in most cases. And more nutritious.
