A (healthier) version of the Chick-fil-a peach milkshake

A (healthier) version of the Chick-fil-a peach milkshake is just as delicious as the Chick-fil-a peach milkshake…but healthier!

The HealthiER Chick fil A-inspired Peach Milkshake!!
The HealthiER Chick fil A-inspired Peach Milkshake!!

I’m going to keep this particular recipe post short & sweet. I have a weakness for Chick-fil-a milkshakes…but I’m also trying to watch my waistline. So, I got pretty creative and concocted a healthier version of their classic summer beverage. Your girl is trying to lose weight. There. I said it.

Disclaimer for this Peach Goodness!

There is something pretty important that I need to address before I jump into the recipe. Healthy food, especially while trying to lose weight does NOT mean that you have to compromise on flavor! Often times, I find myself being super hateful and resentful of diet food and diets in general. For one thing, I have spent so much of my life yo-yo dieting (which clearly hasn’t worked). Second: Most diet’ food I have seen or tried tastes horrible. I can already taste that weird artificial chemical flavor that so many ‘slimming’ treats taste like. Not for me! I have, and will always believe that food should taste mouth-watering and delicious, no matter where you are in your unique health journey.

HealthyER Milkshake

I wanted to provide a second disclaimer for this recipe. This (healthier) version of the Chick-fil-a peach milkshake recipe is healthiER compared to the original small-sized chick fil a milkshake, which has a whopping 660 calories. This is why I say healthier in the title of this recipe. Nevertheless, feel free to swap out for a plain no sugar added vanilla yogurt, if that’s your thing! And if you do that, please let me know what ya think!

Strawberry Hot Chocolate

This strawberry hot chocolate recipe is a really delicious and unique way to enjoy delicious strawberries with your family!

Jump to Recipe

I have a confession to make: I really love hot chocolate. In fact, drinking hot chocolate is kind of an addiction for me. No matter the temperature, or time of the year, nothing feels more satisfying than curling up somewhere, and allowing the creamy warmth of hot cocoa massage my taste buds and soul. It’s kind of a spiritual thing.

Being that I am a Florida gal, it’s actually a big deal for me to be such an avid hot cocoa lover, given the fact that I spend half of the year in notoriously hot and humid conditions. But as someone once told me, you make time for what’s important.

Strawberry Fields, Forever!

For those who do not know, I live in a lovely town, known as Plant City, Florida. Aside from the contributions that Henry B. Plant made towards our establishment as a historic railroad hub, we are also known for something else: Strawberries! Winter is the season that strawberries grow and thrive, and the region around Plant City and Central Florida has a pretty prevalent array of strawberry growers. More specifically, according to Fresh From Florida, if you are interested in purchasing these sweet berries, depending on climate conditions, strawberries typically grow from December until early April. According to the Florida Strawberry Growers Association, the sweet spot to enjoy these berries is typically from late January-early March, when the growing season begins to peak.  But overall, when the temperature and soil conditions align, one can expect to enjoy some pretty sweet and juicy berries.

When Strawberries Meet Hot Chocolate

As you see, I just made a pretty vulnerable confession about my love for hot chocolate, and I also provided some 101 information about Florida’s strawberry season. But what do strawberries and hot chocolate have to do with each other? Well, everything.

You see, I have been trying to figure out a very creative way to enjoy my favorite beverage that incorporates my town’s beloved fruit. Hence, I am very proud to say that I concocted a pretty darn tasty and satisfying strawberry hot chocolate recipe. Forgot the processed strawberry syrup from your grocery store. This recipe contains real strawberries, and white chocolate, which beautifully compliments the berries.

If you’re based out of the Central Florida region and looking for some tasty berries to purchase, I definitely recommend shopping for a flat (or two!) of Strawberries. They can be found at and around the premises of the Florida Strawberry Festival. You will definitely get a good bang for your buck. If you live in the Plant City area, and are looking for some quality white chocolate, definitely hit up my friends over at The Corner Store. They sell quality European white chocolate buttons, by the pound!
