It’s hard to believe this shake is made up of only four ingredients.  I began by blending the main ingredients — cherries, Greek yogurt, milk and Truvia — as a starting point.  But, after a mini taste test, my eyes shot open and I kinda wanted to chug the stuff right there…  it was thick, sweet, fruity and made me come back for more.

And more.

And more.

Aaaand more…

It was so good I didn’t even have the patience to photograph it.  I made this shake every day for an entire week, so I knew I had to share the recipe with you guys.  I finally found the time (about 42 seconds) to snap a few photos.

(chugging quickly ensued after that…)

  • 2 tbs Truvia Spoonable

I usually use packeted Truvia but the kind people at the Truvia company sent me some of the spoonable version to try out.  Honestly, I think the spoonable version is the way to go — it’s fast and easy to measure and takes up less space than a bunch of packets.

Oh no, that might lead to some trouble…  because that also means that this milkshake will be even easier to make!

(and chug…)

Oh, don’t roll your eyes at me!  If I was willing to share a sip with you out of my glass you’d run away with it and chug it too.

Now that’s what I call a guilt-free milkshake!  It’s surprisingly filling from the fiber and protein, and since it doesn’t have added sugar, ice cream or syrup, you won’t get a sugar-rush and sugar-crash.

    Okay so I just made this and… i have no words!! At first i though “hmm, this is pretty good” but then one sip led to another and it took the longest time for me to stop drinking it! My only motivation was that it was going to be my breakfast tomorrow :)
    Thanks for the fabulous recipe!!
