Although I don’t eat a ton of them, I’m a huge fan of sweet treats on occasion. Especially in the summer, something cool and sweet can be very refreshing. When I feel the need to indulge, I do try to make it as healthy as possible when I’m able to – yes, sweet treats can be both tasty and relatively healthy!
Silk has a great Silkology page full of delicious drinks you can make using Silk milks. For me, this one looked like a great way to end the day on a sweet note!!
· 1 cup Silk Chocolate soymilk or Pure Almond Dark Chocolate almondmilk
· 1 Tbsp chocolate hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®)
· 1/4 medium banana
· 1/2 tsp honey
· 1/2 cup ice
Throw into a blender and whiz away! I like to keep frozen bananas in the freezer for drinks like this. It helps it be even more thick and slushy.
I’m a huge fan of the dark chocolate almond milk, so I know I would enjoy this drink! Plus, it has everything you need to end your day on a healthy note – antioxidants from the chocolate, potassium from the banana, and a protein punch with the hazelnut! What a great end to a day out by the pool! It’s the perfect way to cool off and relax while you’re watching the sun set with all of your friends.
Want something with a kick? Try adding an ounce of amaretto to this yummy drink! You’re sure to be the talk of the town with this drink.
Be sure to check out the facebook page for all kinds of other drink inspirations. Whether you’re looking for fruity or decadent, they have you covered!
Silk inspired me to think outside of the bowl with their new Silkology-inspired drink recipes. Tell me something new you want to try this summer when entertaining to win a Silkology prize package.
