Snack Attack: Chocolate Ice Cubes

We are always looking for yummy and healthy things to snack on but it is easy to run out of our own ideas. Sick of the same old thing? Well, thanks to user, mandiesoh, you can try a new snack! Her light snack idea for Chocolate Ice Cubes is so simple, yet sounds so good. Chocolate ice cubes are something that make you think, why didn't I think of that?

"Here's something i do just in case i get a sudden craving for something cold, icy and chocolate-y.

Buy a carton of low-fat chocolate milk (it's only 150 calories per 200 ml), pour into an ice cube tray and freeze it!

Seeing as you'll only eat a few at a time (I THINK!) you'll only consume very few calories while eating something so delish!"

Thanks mandiesoh! Great idea so when you're reaching for ice cream, reach for a few chocolate cubes!

Do you have a snack that is healthy you'd like to share? Maybe bumps on a log or rice cakes with natural peanut butter are your thing. If so, share your ideas and recipes in the Snack Attack Group! I'd love to feature your fabulous ideas on FitSugar's upcoming healthy snack post!

great idea! if you made the chocolate milk at home with an organic low sugar mix you can omit even more calories.

hey soup! im not really sure why! but the way i do it, the ice cube tray is damp/wet from washing, and then i pour the choc milk straight in. maybe the thin layer of water helps to take it out?? i've never had this problem before so im nt sure! :?

you're right! why didn't i think of this. you could probably make the chocolate milk yourself with a powder and skim milk and that might be even healthier. i bet it would be good for making quick milk shakes too just pop the cubes in the blender. i'm excited, i'm going to go try this. hahaha.

While I don't 100% agree with missgirlfriend regarding milk, I do know what she is talking about. I'm an ovo-lacto vegetarian which means I don't eat any meat but I do eat a little dairy and eggs. I choose organic dairy and free-range organic eggs. The problem with regular dairy is that the cows are injected with hormones and antibiotics which then travel to the milk and consequently, into you if you drink it. The organic milk I drink is produced by a local co-op in my area and the cows are not injected, they are also fed more healthily. I'm originally from farm country and have seen for myself the creepy way that cows are treated, so that is another reason why a lot of people decide dairy is not for them. As for soy milk, it actually is extrememly healthy for most people. It's a very good protien source esp. for vegetarians. There is a lot of current scientific research that shows soy's ability to fight cancer. It is usually only a problem for people with what is called "estrogen scensitivity" since soy does contain a natural estrogen.
