A #skinny #Reese's #Milkshake that tastes just like a DQ blizzard! But for only 200 calories (even the mini serving at DQ is 360 calores with twice as much fat!!)

This milkshake is AWESOME. It tastes just like a Dairy Queen Reese’s Blizzard. And all you need is 1 Healthy Choice or WW brand Fudgesicle + 6 Reese’s minis (not miniature Reese’s Cups)! Of course, it’s quite a bit smaller than a DQ blizzard, but that’s the point isn’t it? Portion control!

Skinny Saturday: Skinny Reese’s Cup Milkshake

Ingredients

  • 1 Healthy Choice or WW Fudge Pop (in the ice cream section)
  • 6 Reese's minis
  • 1 tbsp. unsweetend almond milk
  • Optional: fat free whipped cream for topping

Instructions

  1. Microwave the fudge pop for 10 seconds. Use a knife or fork to scrape it off the stick into blending cup.
  2. Blend it up with the 6 Reese's mini cups and 1 tbsp of almond milk. Top with fat free whipped cream if desired.

Notes about this Recipe:

  • I wouldn’t suggest trying to blend this in a full sized blender unless you’re making more than one serving at once. Otherwise I don’t think it will blend very well. Try to use either a single sized blending cup (my Ninja came with 2), or use this nifty trick to do a single serve blend using a mason jar and a standard blender base (like Oster). Or, you might even just be able to mash the fudge pop and the reese’s together using a fork!
  • Substitute other 1/2 servings of your favorite candies for other tasty variations!

  1. Completely agree! I felt really deprived on Points Plus because it was hard to even eat a Bagel Thin (that’s only 110 calories) or any Skinny Cow treats. I, too, found myself binging, so I went back to old WW. It worked and I kept the weight off for 2 years just counting calories (My Fitness Pal app). However, about 4 pounds have crept back on so if you find old WW stuff, please share the source because I may need to revisit that.

    • Glad to hear it worked for you to switch back! I’m a little self conscious about the switch, because I’m a notorious “switcher” when it comes to weight loss methods. But… I just feel so much more in control on the old system! Hopefully the numbers work out too 🙂 I’ll let you know if I find anything good– I haven’t even taken the time to look yet. But I’ll head over to Amazon soon.

  2. I too was not a fan of PointsPlus in the beginning. (Lost over 100lbs on the old program) But now I do the Simply Filling portion of WW. I love it and now down over 170lbs! You focus on Power Foods, eating until satisfied and don’t have to count PointsPlus. You only count for things that aren’t a Power Food and you just use your weeklies and activity PointsPlus for those. Might be something to check out.

    And that shake looks awesome! Good idea to use a fudge bar!

    • I have been doing ok on PP since I started on 12/3/12 but I do feel like I’m struggling sometimes with the restrictions. I was VERY successful with the old Core Program and I’ve been thinking about doing the Filling Foods – which is like Core but modified a bit. I needed to kick off my weight loss and get control of myself again before I was comfortable to switch to Filling Foods. Thanks for the reminder and the motivation to check it out! Great job on the weight loss!

  3. I totally hear ya! I’m not doing weight watchers, but I am watching what I’m eating so I can lose the last 8 lbs from having my baby back in December and I feel like that last few days have been bad. I rarely crave chocolate, but I had to have it last night and I ate 4 of those mini twix’s. Which isn’t horrible, but I had already had stupid greasy cheese pizza and cake from a b-day party and I was in regret city all night. So today is a new day and I’m hoping I can make better choices this week!
    This milkshake looks amazing! My husband is totally going to want to make this tonight.

    • Yes! Today is always a new day! Thank goodness, right!?! I sort of went nuts on Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches last night (3!). But thankfully, that’s not really the worst I could do. And I had the points, so I can live with it 😉

  4. I found you through Pinterest, and now my stomach is grumbling 🙂 I am a long time (well, 8 year) Weight Watcher and I have all the old Flex/Core stuff! What are you looking for? I have tons of stuff like 0/1 point snacks, the old sliders, you name it!

    • I think what I want the most are the old books– like the pocket guide and restaurant guides for classic point (not points plus). I have a good calculator, so I’m ok without the slider. I think I’ll try and dig up an old cookbook too (although I know the new books have the old points listed also, thank goodness!). Do you use the old stuff? Or the new system?

      • I have never tried the new system, but I know that I would have a hard time with the increased points for carbs! I married an Italian – carbs are very much a part of our diet! At my goal, I had lost 60 lbs with the old flex plan, so that works for me! I have the Turn Around, Everyone Loves Chicken, New Complete Cookbook and I think one more. I do have the books that came in the kit circa 2005 – the dining out book and the main book. I can definitely scan and send you what you want!

  5. This looks absolutely delicious! Reese’s are my favorite candy, and to have it in a milkshake? Heaven. Thanks for the recipe. I’ll have to try this soon! (:

  6. I don’t know if this helps, but skinnytaste.com has great WW recipes and she calculates old points. I’m with you on the old system- way better and more effective. I have found that I can still eat fruit and not count it on the old points system. That is something I took from PP.
