I’m Dreaming of A White (Chocolate Peppermint Shake) Christmas

*UPDATE 11-18-2015: THEY’RE BACK!!!

Say it with me, 'YUM!'

Say it with me, ‘YUM!’

Just imagine I was tech savvy enough to have this song playing throughout your time on this post, knew how to make snowflakes fall delicately across the page, and had a nice log burning fire going to keep you toasty and warm as you read…

AdvoCare has just released their limited time Holiday White Chocolate Peppermint Meal Replacement Shakes and I know I have found my new favorite replacement for breakfast…and lunch…and dinner 😀 (Although I haven’t found a flavor of Meal Replacement Shakes that I didn’t love and with a 40% discount, who says I have to pick favorites?) For anyone that has had the Meal Replacement Shakes before, you know they taste even better than they sound! When it comes to the Holiday flavors, James and I don’t mess around and stock up on them before they quickly sell out! I have experimented with different baking recipes to see if there is any way I could top the regular ol’ shake forms and found a handful of other ways to use them in delicious treats. Several of my friends inspired me to give this recipe a whirl:

I had seen the recipe for Muscle Gain Ice Cream a while back and had intended on trying it out before the weather cooled off, but totally forgot! (Thanks a lot Pregnancy Brain!) James had a day off from work recently, so we decided ice cream for breakfast was just what the doctor ordered. All I can say is, Ah-mah-zing! Super easy to do and SO delicious. I originally tried it with the Holiday Pumpkin Spice flavor and you can bet your bottom dollar I will be making this with the newest flavor.

White Chocolate Peppermint ice cream that’s healthy? Yes, Please! You’ll have to try it for yourself! 🙂

White Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream:

  • 1 blender bottle with whisk ball (or medium sized bowl with standard whisk if you don’t have a blender bottle)
  • 1 gallon sized plastic bag filled 1/2 way with ice
  • Approximately 1/2 cup of ice cream salt (or regular salt if you don’t have ice cream salt)
  • 1 quart size plastic bag
  • 1 cup almond milk (or whatever your milk of choice is)
  • 1 White Chocolate Peppermint Meal Replacement Shake
  • Handful (or more 😉 ) of Mini Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
  • Optional: ingredients to mix in ice cream or for toppings

Instructions:

  1. In the blender bottle or bowl if you don’t have a bottle, mix the milk, Meal Replacement Shake, and any other liquid or powder ingredients you’ve chosen.
  2. Pour contents of blender bottle/bowl into quart size plastic bag, remove as much air as possible from bag, and seal tightly.
  3. Add salt to gallon sized bag with ice
  4. Place quart sized bag into the gallon sized bag, remove air from bag, and seal tightly.
  5. Optional: Wrap the bag in a kitchen towel to keep your hands from turning into ice cubes 😉
  6. Shake, shake, shake! (the gallon bag around for 5-10 minutes.)
  7. Remove quart sized bag from gallon bag and quickly rinse off any salt from exterior of bag in cold water…unless you like really salty ice cream.
  8. Place your ice cream in a bowl, add toppings, and enjoy! 😛

If you were one of the smart/fortunate ones who ordered the Pumpkin Spice Shakes before they sold out, you’ll love this one too!

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream!

The finished product: Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream with added Pecans!

I used Hint of Honey Vanilla Almond Milk in the shake and sprinkled chopped pecans as my topping. YUM!

Although James loves the Pumpkin Spice shakes, he is a chocolate ice cream guy through and through. He decided to go with Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream for dessert breakfast. He then proceeded to add more Mini Enjoy Life chocolate chips as toppings, but when your ice cream is only 260 calories and packed with 22 grams of protein, I’d say it evens out. 😉

James’s Ingredients included:

James's yummy ice cream!

James’s yummy ice cream!

We will definitely be making this recipe again in the near future!
