When I was doing the low carb thing, I searched and searched for recipes for things that would taste good and not be just another cheese stick. I had some ricotta cheese leftover from my mini lasagna Try It and wondered if there was something I could use that in. I searched Pinterest and found this:
A “milkshake” that’s low carb?! Uh, YES PLEASE.
Here’s what I used:
~ 1/4 cup part skim ricotta cheese
~2-3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
~1 tsp vanilla extract
~2 cups Skim milk (the recipe said you could unsweetened almond milk too, but I already skim milk)
~3-4 tsp Stevia (you could also use Splenda)
~Sugar free Cool Whip (to dollop on top)
All you do is pour it into a blender and bam! Its done!
In the original pin’s blog post, the writer said she had enough left for two more milkshakes. Because of this, I halved the recipe…except I used the wrong amount of cocoa. I used twice as much as I should have which made it…not so great.
It was grainy and super bitter. I basically ate the Cool Whip off the top and called it a day. I may try to make this again (and actually get the amounts right) but I consider this Try It a fail. Womp, womp.
Have you ever tried this before? Did you have different results?
