Wendy’s Frosty Skinny Version

I came across a copy cat recipe for a Wendy’s Frosty on Pinterest.  I tweaked it to make it fat free and low calorie.  The final product is amazing!  Tastes just like a real Frosty.

INGREDIENTS:

  • cup fat-free milk
  • 2 tablespoons low calorie (sugar-free) chocolate instant pudding
  • 2 tablespoons Cool Whip Free
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 ice cubes
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  Pour in a glass and freeze until it has a frosty consistency.  Makes 1 serving; 130 calories and 0 fat.

Save Calories with Tips To Cut Sugar

One of largest pitfalls to extra calories is added sugar.  Extra calories lead to weight gain.

From the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics  http://www.eatright.org/Public/content.aspx?id=6442469635

Here are some tips on limiting added sugars while treating your sweet tooth:

  • Enjoy fruit, a naturally sweet treat.
    • Add to salads, salsas, sauces, toppings and more.
    • Snack on fruit and enjoy as dessert instead of candy, cookies or pastries.
    • Use fruit to sweeten oatmeal or cereal.
  • Drink healthy drinks.
    • Switch to water or low-fat or fat-free milk instead of sodas, energy drinks or sports drinks.
    • Drink 100-percent fruit juice in moderation instead of sugary fruit drinks.
    • Try carbonated beverages with no added sugars or add lemon, limes or cucumbers to water for additional taste.
  • Compare foods.
    • Read food labels of packaged foods and choose the ones with little or no added sugars.

Here It Is Again! Strawberry Smoothie!

Here it is, the GoGirlDiet Smoothie I always talk about.  This smoothie is so easy to make, low in calories and no fat.  You can drink it for a snack or you can have it for a quick breakfast and it so delish.  As they say, “it’s the bomb”!  The recipe makes 2 servings to save some for later or you can cut it in half to make 1 serving.

Just blend all ingredients in a blender and pour into a glass.  Yummy!  Makes 2 servings.  1 serving= 145 calories, 0 fat, 20 g CHO, 3 g fiber, 8 g Pro, 30% calcium.
