Like Milkshakes? Try this!

Spring is here and it's time to continue a close watch on our weight and health. I know when the temperature starts to rise, I like to enjoy a cool shake! Don't deny your cravings, just do it right.

A couple tips. Use frozen fruit and skim milk for a great strawberry, blackberry, banana, or your favorite fruit shake. The frozen fruit gives the consistency of the hard ice cream. The skim milk keeps it fat free! You can also use a little vanilla extract for added flavor.

Here's a recipe for one of my healthy faves:
Choco-Peanut Butter-Banana Shake
1 cup skim milk
2 tbs chocolate Ovaltine
2 tbs Jif creamy peanut butter
2 ripe bananas-if not ripe, they won't give the desired flavor
1 tsp vanilla extract
5-6 ice cubes

Sounds delicious. You can also throw in some protein powder. Vanilla or chocolate would be hardly noticeable.
