If you’re like myself and millions of other people around the world you are a fan of Starbucks. Well, at least one item on the Starbucks menu. I wouldn’t consider myself addicted like some people, but there is always one item on the menu drawing me in year round. Fall it’s the Pumpkin Spice latte or Frappuccino. Christmas season it’s the Cremé Brûlée latte or the Egg nog Frappuccino. Spring and summer it’s the Caramel Frappuccino. However, the one drink I love no matter the season is the Mango Drangonfruit Refresher. My sister got me hooked to it a little while back and it’s become one, of if not my absolutely favorite drink, on the Starbucks menu. It is for this reason I decided to create my own spin off of the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher. I used a few more tropical fruits and call it the Tropical Mango Refresher.Read More
Halo Top Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake
Today is officially the first day of Summer. For those of you looking for a delicious and non-guilty dessert to cool you off this summer, try out this easy and yummy Halo Top Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake.
I've recently discovered how much I enjoy Halo Top ice cream. Not only is it delicious, but it's guilt free! Most pints are 300 calories or less. Yes, the entire pint is only 300 calories! It's like finding a small piece of heaven on earth. They have so many delicious flavors and my new life goal is to try them all. Ha! But in all seriousness, it's so nice to finally have an ice cream us clean eaters can enjoy, without the guilt that usually comes with it.
This recipe is perfect for a quick sweet tooth fix. You can even pour the milkshake into popsicle trays and make healthy popsicles for little ones. If you're wanting even more nutrients in this dessert, add a small banana to the ingredients list. I promise it's just as delicious!
- 1 pint Halo Top Chocolate Ice Cream
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- 2 Tbsp PB2
Pour your Halo Top ice cream, almond milk, honey, and PB2 into a blender.

*If you want it with more ice, you can either add ice cubes to the blender, or place a freezer safe cup with your shake in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until ice chunks form.*
