{skinny} frozen mexican hot chocolate


skinny cocoa


My anniversary is 23 days away. I find it difficult to believe that it’s been 15 years already. While I feel like we’ve been together forever, it also feels like just yesterday we were in Paris for our honeymoon.

This year we are going away, just the two of us, no kids, to Las Vegas. Paris it is ย not, but I’m thrilled to be getting away. Plus, it is GREAT people watching. I’ve been trying to watch what I eat, so that I can look and feel my best on vacation.

But, this is summer vacation.

There are barbecues

With burgers

and corn on the cob

and ice cream.

The more I think about healthy eating, the more I crave milkshakes and french fries.

{probably the BEST combination known to man}

But have you seen the ladies in Vegas…holy moly. ย Hot mommas as far as the eye can see, and it may sound silly, but I want to be one of them.

Even if it is just for a day,

and that means no french fries and milkshakes.

  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • drizzle of melted chocolate {about 1/2 ounce - 1 square}
  • chocolate shavings for garnish


  • in the jar of a blender combine everything but the chocolate shavings
  • blend thoroughly
  • at this point you can freeze in an ice cube tray
  • once frozen blend in the blender until you have your desired consistency
  • or, if you like me and lack patience to wait...
  • use your ice cream maker - churn for 6 minutes
  • pour and garnish with shavings of chocolate


the french fries will have to wait until after the vacation:)
