Healthy Strawberry Dessert Shake

We returned late last night from a trip out east visiting my husband’s family.  After we put the kids to bed, Chris and I both wanted a little late night snack.  Unfortunately, because we had been out-of-town for the better part of a week we didn’t have much in the kitchen.  Time to improvise!

Chris had gone to the store to get some milk, so I decided to start with that.  Last week I found organic strawberries for $0.98/pound, so I bought six pounds and froze them all.  I opened the fridge and saw some Santa Cruz Organic Chocolate Syrup.  I love this syrup because it tastes great, and I can easily pronounce all six ingredients on the side of the bottle – the Hershey stuff boasts High Fructose Corn Syrup (a big no-no in our house) as its number one ingredient, followed by 11 others that are a bit suspicious.  So, I combined the milk, frozen strawberries and chocolate sauce into a wonderfully satisfying, delicious and healthy treat.  Tastes like a milk shake, but its healthy enough to have every night!

Healthy Strawberry Dessert Shake

2 cups milk

2 handfuls frozen strawberries

2 good squirts Santa Cruz Organic Chocolate Syrup

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and the consistency of a milk shake is reached.  Pour into two glasses and enjoy!

  1. This is so easy! I love Santa Cruz Organic products.

  2. I used to use that chocolate syrup until I learned how easy it is to make your own.

    Chocolate Syrup


    1/4 cup cocoa powder
    1/2 cup sugar
    A tiny bit of salt (yes a tiny bit is a measurement)
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Stir together. Boil 2-5 minutes, stirring rapidly, until sauce begins to thicken. (It will thicken more when it cools.)
