Have you guys ever had ice cream for breakfast? I have. It use to be one of my favorite things to fix myself when I was little and was left home during summer vacation. I was particularly partial to the peanut butter and vanilla flavor from Hershey. I’d eat a ridiculous amount of the stuff. I really like peanut butter.
Being that the summer is over, it seems that an ice cream for breakfast recipe is long over due. And honestly, ice cream is not the worst thing you can have to start your day. I first heard about Halo Top on Instagram and seriously, I’m obsessed with the stuff. It’s excellent. Unlike many low-calorie ice creams (which taste watered down and sort of pathetic in comparison to the real thing), Halo Top is actually creamy and flavorful. In my opinion, it rivals Haagen-Dazs which may be one of the most incredible ice cream brands on the planet. And similar to HD, Halo Top uses eggs. That’s always seemed like a gross ingredient to me but it must make a difference. Unlike Haggen-Dazs, Halo Top uses stevia in place of sugar. Each pint is under 300 calories. It also has protein and fiber which makes it a “healthful” ice cream. And it’s really good tasting, you guys. Like seriously, so so good. Add fruit and some vitamins to it, it’s crazy ohmygawd amazing. The 16 ounce shake is 285 calories and very filling. I add fiber powder and my vitamins to it but that’s just me. If you don’t have Halo Top or want to skip the ice cream all together, add some vanilla protein powder. And no, this is not a sponsored post for Halo Top. I genuinely like the stuff.
¼ cup of fresh blueberries + 1 cup of fresh strawberries + 1 banana + 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla cashew milk + ½ cup of strawberry Halo Top ice cream
Place ingredients into a blender and blend till smooth. Serve immediately.
I fully believe that we can have nutritious food that’s also delicious and fun to eat. This milkshake proves it and I hope you guys try it.
