Here’s a cool way to beat the heat and is a favorite treat for kids of all ages: a thick and frosty milkshake!
This is just one of 70 sports recipes that are in my app, Recipes for Athletes, available at the itunes store for only $2.99.
This milkshake is even healthful because it is thickened with instant pudding powder instead of ice cream. The instant pudding powder adds a nice thick texture and the ice cubes make it frosty and refreshing. You can also add fruit (preferably frozen chunks) for extra nutritional value. It's perfect for a post-exercise recovery shake.
By varying the flavor of the pudding (vanilla, lemon, chocolate), you can create numerous variations. Note: The shake thickens upon standing; you can add more (or less) pudding mix, depending on how thick you like your shakes.
If there are pieces of ice cubes remaining in the shake, worry not—they’ll just keep the beverage cool.
