I like to mix up two tablespoons of Nesquik in one cup of low calorie almond milk or low calorie coconut milk. You could also try mixing it with coconut water, although I haven't tried that yet. You can drink it hot or cold, depending on your mood.
Nesquik is available in chocolate (my favorite), strawberry, and vanilla (which I haven't tried - let me know if they are good!). Two tablespoons of Nesquik powder has just 60 calories (and 1 weight watchers point).
I found a great recipe that I enjoy on the Nesquik site, and I have modified it to make it even healthier for dieters. This cool smoothie makes a great breakfast meal, a low calorie dessert, or can be used as a snack – and what’s more – your kids will drink it! My modified version of the “Bunny Safari Smoothie” provides you with lots of Calcium, Vitamin C, and Potassium – and will hit the spot on a hot summer’s day!
Yummy Diet Foods Version of Bunny Safari Smoothie (Low Calorie Chocolate Banana Smoothie)
- 1 cup almond or coconut milk
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1 cup crushed ice cubes
- 1/3 cup Chocolate Flavor Nesquik Powder
For a Chocolate Peanut Smoothie, blend the above with one tablespoon of Better’n Peanut Butter or PB2, which are both healthy, low calorie peanut butter alternatives. Or for a berry smoothie, blend in 1 cup of frozen strawberries or raspberries (or throw in a handful of cherries or blueberries) in place of bananas.
