Hot Fudge Granola Chocolate Sundae

     You know that mood when all you want is ice cream for dinner and nothing else will compensate...I know you do, don't act like you don't...  Anyhoo, such was the case when I created my Hot Fudge Granola Chocolate Sundae.  It was the perfect meal and I was completely satisfied, all guilt free.  For 384 calories, 25.7g carbs and 29.5g protein you can take a walk on the wild side, all the while remaining completely free from harm.  Feel like a kid again and have a Sundae Monday thru Saturday!  ;)

1 Tablespoon Quest Chocolate Milkshake Protein Powder
1 teaspoon Cocoa
2 Tablespoons 25 calorie/cup Cashew Milk
1/2 cup Chocolate Halo Top Creamery Ice Cream
1 Tablespoon reduced fat shredded Coconut
1 Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Granola Square (see recipe below)

     Mix and stir the first 4 ingredients til smooth.  Pour over Ice Cream, sprinkle with Coconut and crumble Granola Square on top.  Enjoy  ;)
