Lost My Marbles, a Diet Shake Recipe
Serves 1 for about 135 calories
4 Whopper’s Maltballs (or your favorite malt ball brand)
1 cup of ice cold skim milk
1 Tablespoon of powdered cocoa, unsweetened
1-3 packets of sugar substitute; you can opt for a teaspoon of sugar for 18 calories
½ teaspoon of grated orange peel, if desired
You will also need about 1/8 to 1/4 cup of crushed ice for thickening power.
Place the unsweetened powdered cocoa into small bowl. Carefully add 1 Tablespoon of warm water and stir until powder has turned into a liquid chocolate. It should be a very smooth paste consistency with all the chocolate powder dissolved.
Next pour half of the skim milk into your mixing bowl or blender, and the other half into your chocolate mix. This will help remove the chocolate from the bowl.
Add chocolate ‘milk’ to mixing bowl or blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend until frothy. Serve cold.
Weight Loss Tips, Low Calorie Recipes for Chocolate & Orange Creations
Do you like oranges? What about chocolate? These two flavors are great on their own but when paired, they are awesome! Diet Bites has some tips for these two combinations that you might like to insert into your weight loss plan.
Always remember that when you're attempting to lose pounds, every little thing that passes through your lips counts towards your total caloric intake for the day.
Therefore, when it comes to those little sweet things, the calorie content can accumulate quite quickly. Use your savvy sense and enjoy in moderation, but only when your daily menu allows.
And now for those spiffy weight loss tips involving orange and chocolate:
- Add a splash of orange extract to melted dark chocolate; dip orange sections into the chocolate - but only 1/2 the way up the section of fruit. You can also do the same with orange wafers. Again - enjoy one or two and be done.
- Create a lush chocolate and orange mousse with lady fingers and commercially packaged chocolate mousse. Prepare mousse as directed on the package; add a teaspoon of orange extract.
Pour the chocolate mousse into a round mold that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. When it sets, carefully un-mold onto a serving plate. Arrange lady fingers around the chocolate.
- Zippy-up low fat frozen chocolate yogurt by adding a squeeze of orange or orange extract.
Chocolate Orange Crepe Recipe
The basic crepe recipe calls for the following ingredients: 1½ milk, 1 cup of all-purpose flour, a couple of large eggs, a dash of salt and a Tablespoon of vegetable oil.
All of the ingredients are mixed together using a rotary beater. Then they are cooked in a non-stick lightly oiled pan until golden.
To create a chocolate-orange crepe with fewer calories than the basic recipe, opt for reduced fat milk and medium eggs. Add just a shot of orange extract and a dash of ground cinnamon.
Cook in a skillet until the crepe is golden brown. Drizzle with melted dark chocolate.
