I LOVE ice cream, frozen yogurt, but most of all, Dairy Queen’s Cookie Dough Blizzard. When it comes to fast-food soft serves, Dairy Queen’s Blizzard totally trumps their competition. If you aren’t familiar with DQ Blizzards, they’re ultra thick soft serve shakes with various toppings bended in. They’re so thick that when you flip the cup over, nothing comes out!

Although they’re mouth watering good, I have to admit that I feel kind of crappy from the extreme sugar rush upon eating one. Since creating my Healthy Frosty, I have been daydreaming about a healthy healthy Blizzard. Below I have included the calorie count for large DQ blizzards, so you can see how crazy it is!

Nutrition Facts for DQ Blizzards: 

  • Banana Cream Pie Blizzard (Large): 1090 Calories
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard (Large): 1060 Calories
  • Georgia Mud Fudge Blizzard (Large) 1340 Calories
  • Chocolate Xtreme Blizzard (Large): 1420 Calories
  • Georgia Mud Fudge Blizzard (Large) 1340 Calories
  • Cookie Dough Blizzard (Large): 1020 Calories

Scary? Um yes!

  6. Do you peel the banana before you peel it? I’ve heard a lot about frozen bananas but I’m not sure how to do it! lol. This sounds so yummy!

    Response from Lauren
    reply
    • Hi Lauren! Yes peel first! I like to let the bananas get super ripe and “cheetah spotted” first. Then peel, place in a ziplock or tupperware and freeze! If your blender isn’t super high powered (I have a Vitamix) I would recommend chopping the banana up into smaller pieces before freezing!

  11. Do you know what the nutritional breakdown is for your vegan milkshake? Or rather, just the calorie information. I’m curious how it stands next to the DQ Blizzards you posted the calorie counts for.
