First published 3/7/14; edited 4/22/15. I changed the name to “Extreme Chocolate Whiteout” on 12.6.16, but the recipe is the same as before.
Dairy Queen is one of my top three fast food places. I’m happy with a small Blizzard for a meal, but my only problem is deciding which one to get. In the past year or so, I’ve been sticking pretty much exclusively to the Chocoholics menu; and one of my favorite Blizzards is the Chocolate Xtreme – “Chewy brownie pieces, choco chunks and cocoa fudge blended with creamy vanilla soft serve.”
With my current soft-serve ice cream obsession, I decided to try to tweak the recipe to recreate some of my favorite DQ Blizzards. The first one I tried to recreate was the Strawberry Cheesequake Blizzard, another DQ favorite of mine. It turned out great, and I was all set to blog about it – until I tried this one yesterday morning. It tasted so much like the original that I just couldn’t wait to share it with you. I was literally grinning from ear to ear as I ate this for breakfast. Often when you try to copy a recipe and make it healthy, the results are good – but not spectacular. I believe that this one nudges the spectacular.
Mmmm…brownie batter ice cream filled with chunks of chocolate and fudgy brownies.
I thought about trying to get a picture of this thing upside down – you know how DQ serves their Blizzards upside down to show off how thick they are? Well…let’s just say that I tried that with the Strawberry Cheesecake Whiteout…and the only pictures I got the first time around were of a big pink puddle on the kitchen counter. I didn’t take a picture of what ended up on the floor…or all down the front of me. It really was thick – but I had transferred it into a different cup for pictures and there wasn’t a lot of suction going on….
This is where I finally end up giving you the recipe. 🙂 And if you don’t like raw eggs, I’m afraid I can’t help you there. I’m not afraid in the least bit to eat a raw egg; I guess that comes from growing up drinking a frozen eggnog chock-full of raw eggs every Christmas. You could try leaving the egg out if it’s totally gross to you, but I’m not promising that this “Blizzard” will taste as rich without it.
You can find this recipe in my cookbook, Necessary Food.
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1 farm fresh egg
- ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
- ¼ cup cottage cheese
- 3 doonks THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder, to taste (a doonk is 1/32 tsp.)
- ¼-1/2 tsp. glucomannan
- Scant ¼ tsp. baking powder
- ½ scoop vanilla whey protein powder
- Scant T cocoa powder
- 1 Fudgy Brownie
- Chunks of 85% dark chocolate, unsweetened baker's chocolate, Lily's Chocolate Chips, or chunks of Skinny Chocolate (recipe can be found in the Trim Healthy Mama book)
- Blend all but the last two ingredients together. If the treat is not thick enough for your liking, add some more ice.
- Cut the Fudgy Brownie into small pieces (substitute at your own risk; this Blizzard-style treat needs chewy brownie pieces to taste authentic) and stir it and the chocolate chunks by hand into the shake.
