Creamy, rich, delicious and refreshing milkshake…

As you walk past the milkshake bar, when your head turns around and your eyes skim through the irresistible menu…your subconscious mind pops up to stop you from ordering your favorite deliciously unhealthy milkshake. There you will be seen conflicting with your subconscious right in front of the store. Next thing you hear will be “would you like to have something?” from the milkshake tender. Without any further pondering your answer will be- Yes, I would like to have strawberry milkshake with 2 huge scoops of ice cream, topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with shaved dark chocolates, here goes your order. Each spoonful of this milkshake will be filled with flavorful guilt and after you empty the huge glass, your subconscious would start listing the amount of calories and the saturated fat content you just sipped into your body by paying $5 from your pocket.

Do you really want to sip the milkshake with such guilt and pain? I don’t think so. We should sip the milkshake enjoying the richness, flavor and with each spoonful our mind and soul should be happy and delighted. Here is a guilt free, fat free, rich, creamy milkshake from my kitchen to yours. Sip with style and feel refreshed for the remainder of the day.

While innocently browsing through the ice cream aisle, I bumped into Organic So delicious dairy free creamy vanilla. Seeing the percentage of saturated fat it had, I couldn’t just leave it back in the shelf. It had 0% saturated fat. I must say this ice cream tasted much richer and tastier than the regular one. So, why buy the extra fat if we have better fat free choices?
