Chocolate Milkshakes

Friday, April 25th, 2008

We’ve all got to indulge sometimes. What better way to indulge than a thick creamy chocolate milkshake?

I’ve found a way to cancel out the being bad part of a milkshake with a being good part. At least I like to pretend. It’s sort of similar to eating a really healthy vegetable and then smothering it with cheese or butter, but backwards.

The being good part involves wheat germ, so let’s talk about it.

Wheat germ is a very small part of the wheat kernel. Don’t be alarmed by the term germ. It has nothing to do with bacteria, it simply refers to germination. The germ is the reproductive part that germinates and forms the wheat grass.

The amount of nutrients that are contained in wheat germ seem endless. Wheat germ is very high in protein. It has riboflavin, calcium, zinc, magnesium and vitamins A, B1 and 3. Vitamins B1 and 3 are very important to maintain energy levels and maintain healthy muscles, organs, hair and skin. Another important vitamin found in wheat germ is vitamin E. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant. Vitamin E also helps prevent blood clots and is needed to strengthen the body’s immune system. Wheat germ contains 23 nutrients in all.

Oh, and wheat germ tastes really good too. It makes an awesome topping for ice cream, yogurt or milkshakes.

Here’s my version of a chocolate milkshake, Frosty-style, with a little extra on top…

  • Awesome Chocolate Milkshake (Frosty-style)
    • 1 C vanilla ice cream
    • 1/2 C milk
    • 2 Tbsp. Nesquik Powder
    • 2 Tbsp whipped cream
    • 2 tsp. wheat germ
    • Put ice cream in blender.
    • Top with Nesquik.
    • Pour milk in and blend well.
    • Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream and sprinkle with wheat germ.

Enjoy!
