Skinny Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Shake

This happened this morning.
First off, let me just say - I'm an adult, I can eat chocolate cheesecake for breakfast if I want to.
Secondly..... IT'S HEALTHY!!
Not even lying.
So...yeah.... you can't give me heck for eating healthy things for breakfast. 
*nah nah nah boo boo*
Want to know what is in this that you would never guess?
Weird, right?
So weird. But amazing!
This has lentils, flax, dates, and Greek yogurt to round out the list of ridiculously healthy things. 
So... what are you waiting for?

Skinny Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Shake

1/2 cup 0 fat, plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup 95 % fat free cream cheese
1/2 cup canned lentils
4 pitted dates
2 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp baking cocoa
1 tsp ground flax
2 Tbsp fat free chocolate pudding powder
1 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup 1%  milk
ice cubes

4 Tbsp 95% fat free Cool Whip

Place Greek yogurt and cream cheese into a container or freezer bag and place in freezer until frozen solid. 
When frozen, finish making your shake.
Place lentils, dates, and water into a blender or food processor.

Process until very smooth, scraping sides often.
Add in cocoa powder, flax, pudding powder, chocolate chips, and milk. Process until smooth - again, scraping sides often. Place in the frozen Greek yogurt, cream cheese, and ice cubes. Process until smooth, adding a bit more milk or water as needed to reach desired consistency. 
Pour into 2 drinking glasses and top each with 2 Tbsp of Cool Whip.

Believe me when I say this is one of the most decadent shakes you will ever taste.
So smooth and thick and rich and creamy.

Your would never know this is a low calorie-full of good stuff milkshake. 
According to Myfitnesspal one serving (recipe makes 2) is: 
270 calories, 5 fat, 38 carbs, 4 fiber, and 18 protein.

So... don't be all like - "Dude, you put lentils in a milkshake. That's too weird."
Because, first of all... I'm not a dude... and secondly, it is one of the tastiest things you will ever have the pleasure of trying.
