OK so I totally admit that there are a few comfort foods I miss from before I started eating healthier. Pizza and chocolate shakes are at the top of the list. I know. Comfort food is a killer when it comes to food cravings. Have you ever looked at the ingredients in your typical chocolate syrup you’d find at the store? If you guessed that high fructose corn syrup would be the very first one, you’d be right. Thankfully, there’s a healthier version.

Strawberry Chocolate Shake Without Chocolate Syrup
There are a lot of ways you can enjoy a chocolate shake without chocolate syrup but the most popular is to simply melt your healthy chocolate first. You could also choose to use a chocolate protein powder or a raw cacao powder instead. If you choose to use a cocoa powder, please look at the ingredients and opt for an organic one.
Ice cream is not all that healthy for the most part. It tends to be super high in sugar and artificial ingredients. With this recipe, I have substituted Greek yogurt (plain) for the ice cream. This lowers the sugar and adds needed protein. If you absolutely must use ice cream, buy an organic version that isn’t high in sugar.
Because I love the combination of strawberries and chocolate, I’ve used frozen strawberries in this recipe. You can substitute a frozen banana instead if you’d prefer. It’s all up to you.
- 1 cup of frozen organic strawberries
- 1 cup of Stonyfield organic whole milk Greek yogurt (plain)
- ½ cup organic whole milk
- ½ cup Enjoy Life Mega Chunks (allergy friendly, soy free), melted
- Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until incorporated.
- You can add a bit more or less milk depending on how thick you like your shakes.
This makes about one serving so if you’d like to treat the whole family to chocolate shakes, you’ll need to multiply ingredients. What’s your favorite way to make a chocolate shake without chocolate syrup?
