4th of July Milkshake

Who doesn’t love a good milkshake? I only wish I could have one of these yummy, goodies everyday…..but I don’t think that would be setting a good example of “healthy, nutritious living.” We have to indulge every now and then; however! Although the Red, White, and Blue Patriotic Milkshake is a plain Jane Vanilla ice cream shake, is a MUST splurge for 4th of July.

*TIP: make the dessert quickly, pre-freeze the glasses, and put them in the freezer while making the different colors

Tip of the Day

Slim down your side dish! Love cheesy mashed potatoes? Look for low-fat cheese blends or part-skim ricotta to whip into your creation.
