The 4 WWP Blizzard - just add a bar!

Do I have your attention when I mention that I can tell you how to make a 4 Weight Watcher Point Blizzard? I remembered this little recipe I used to make when we were talking about it in my Weight Watcher meeting on Saturday. This blizzard substitute that I make that is 2-4 Weight Watcher Points depending upon what you choose to use. I used to make this using the Weight Watchers Chocolate Smoothie mix (1 WWP) or Carnation No Sugar Added Instant Breakfast (0 WWP). Here is all you need:

1 Weight Watcher Chocolate Smoothie Mix or Carnation Chocolate No Sugar Added Packet
1 c fat free milk
a handful of ice cubes
1 Weight Watchers Peanut butter Bliss or Chocolate Caramel 1 point bar - Click HERE to see what they look like (pink is caramel, blue is pb - you get them at any WW meeting and you do not have to be a member to buy them)

Blend the first 3 ingredients together until smooth. Chop up the weight watcher bar into 4 pieces and add to your mixer. Pulse to blend just a little but not too much because you want those nice chunks!

However, since I gave up artificial sweeteners over two years ago I no longer use the smoothie or Carnation Mixes. Today, I decided to see if I could recreate this in a healthier way.


1/2 c fat free milk (1 WWP)
1/2 small banana (.5 WWP)
1/4 c fat free greek yogurt (.5 WWP)
1/2 - 1 Tbsp Chocolate Syrup or Artisana Cacao Bliss (1 WWP)
1 Weight Watcher Peanut Butter Bliss Bar (1 WWP)

I definitely could have added more ice to make it thicker, however, I think the results were really good. The banana and chocolate helped to sweeten it up, but, the best part is finding those hidden little chunks of "candy" bar in your drink.

Try it ~ I bet you will like it for sure. The more ice you add or if you freeze your fruit the thicker it gets.

  1. Ooh, that's a great idea! I'll have to try that this summer-- it sounds delicious :D

  2. Um... yum! I gave up artificial sweeteners too a few months back. I was using so much Splenda every day, like 3 packets for cereal, yogurt or oatmeal, and then one or two for coffee. Yuck!

    Btw, got my Biggest Loser 30 Day jumpstart the other day! Can't wait to start reading it!

  3. Anne ~ I would imagine you could do it with any bar, but, the chocolately ones are the best IMHO.

    Jess ~ That is exactly how I was - I think they made me crave sweets and did funky things to me. Now that they are out of my system, it's amazing how different I feel. Yeah for the 30 day Jump Start book - I can't wait to hear what you think!

  4. That sounds amazing! I bet a vita top would taste good in those as well (after it's been all mixed up, crumble one in? Yum)!

  5. L ~ Ohhhh - that's a great idea, I may have to try that too!
