HG's Ginormous Chocolate Ice Cream Shake
HG's Ginormous Chocolate Ice Cream Shake

Great Shakes!
Summer may be coming to an end, but chocolate shakes are DELICIOUS any time of the year. And we've been dying to make a HUGE guilt-free version of those thick, creamy ice cream shakes you find at every fast food chain under the sun. After various attempts (even our blender was becoming irritated with us), we came up with the perfect chocolate shake swap. Not only is it HUGE and low in both calories and fat, but it even has 7 grams of fiber -- WE ROCK SO MUCH! So get shakin', people!

Ingredients:
3/4 cup Breyers Fat Free French Chocolate ice cream
1 25-calorie packet diet hot cocoa mix
1 1/2 tbsp. Hershey’s Syrup Lite chocolate syrup
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda)
2 cups crushed iced (about 10 - 14 ice cubes' worth)
Optional: Fat Free Reddi-wip and a maraschino cherry

Directions:
Dissolve cocoa mix and sweetener into 2 oz. of hot water. Mix well. Add syrup and 6 oz. of cold water and stir. Place crushed ice and ice cream in a blender. Top with liquid mixture. At low to medium speed, blend until shake is thoroughly mixed (but not liquified). Pour into a very tall glass and, if desired, top with a generous squirt of Fat Free Reddi-wip and a cherry. Enjoy!

Jack in the Box Chocolate Ice Cream Shake

Drink Outside the Box!
You know, Jack, you've got some nerve. Your chocolate ice cream shake is one of the worst we've seen (and we've seen LOTS of shakes in our day). Even your REGULAR-sized one without ANY whipped topping contains an alarming 880 calories and 45 fat grams. Adding whipped cream to it tacks on exactly 106.6 calories and 9.8 grams of fat (assuming your server sticks to the strict 35.9g of whipped cream the JITB folks factored in to get those stats). That means if you order their large shake WITH whip you're looking at (ready for this?) -- 1,336.6 calories and 67.8g fat!!! That is downright dangerous for a drive-thru drink! And while Jack's may be among the most awful, pretty much all restaurant, fast food, and even supermarket shakes are jam-packed with embarrassing amounts of calories and fat grams (the average regular-sized chocolate shake has around 700 calories and 25g fat!). Why would any human drink THAT!?! You MUST try HG's Ginormous Chocolate Ice Cream Shake instead! It's for your own good...
