Quick n fluffy 48 calorie chocolate shake

18 Aug

Craving a chocolate shake but don’t have any gelatin prepared in advance?  I’ve perfected the art of “quick setting” gelatin in a shake using ice and a blender!   I daresay it’s better than the original recipe, but it’s also lighter and fluffier- if you’re craving something more substantial check out the original gelatin shake recipe.

The shake I made in the demonstration video was absolutely perfect!  It takes a bit of tweaking to get it just right- too much gelatin, you’ll get fluffy mousse that’s delicious but has to be eaten with a spoon, too little, your shake will be runny, too much ice and you’ll have more of a slushie than a shake.  Also- my experience adding fats (avocado/ almond milk) has not been good, as these seem to “un-fluffy” the “fluffyness.”

    I’m having trouble seeing what the problem with a “fluffy mousse that’s delicious but has to be eaten with a spoon” is. 😀

    That sounds delish; thank you for the recipe!

      I’m just saying… don’t be surprised if your shake turns to mousse! I don’t want to be spammed by angry mousse-haters!
