No Added Sugar Milkshake

Yo Canny crew! We’re back to give you a bit more info into our brand new Chocolate Milkshake. As you know, we’ve been working on giving you’s the best possible product that wipes the floor with other competitors. But you might not know the health benefits inside this sexy new carton. So, we’re gonna give you the facts.

Let’s face it, what with the booze, chocolate & Christmas pud, there’ll be enough sweet stuff over the festive period to keep you going. So, that’s where Canny comes in…

Refined sugars are still being used today in many branded and own-label milkshakes. We were sick of it and wanted Canny to buck the trend (yet again!)

Our refined sugar free milkshake is the outcome of almost a year of testing and trialling of over 50 recipes using different sweeteners. Cause as you lot know, we’re grafters and not prepared to settle for anything less than a proper lush milkshake.

It’s not been a simple process and to be honest, we’re absolutely buzzing we’ve pulled it off! Our refined sugar free milkshake is the outcome of almost a year of testing and trialling of over 50 recipes using different sweeteners. Cause as you lot know, we’re grafters and not prepared to settle for anything less than a proper lush milkshake.

We spent a number of months researching the best alternative that’s not only healthy, but keeps the cracking Canny taste… 

Canny Rebrand by Precept

So, we eventually discovered our winner: date nectar. An absolutely delicious, 100% natural alternative to those rotten, refined sugars. You probably aren’t aware, but this little beauty packs a shed load of nutritional benefits that other alternatives don’t. For instance, it’s even safe for the little un’s (honey can’t be taken by under 3 year olds). 

And what’s more – here comes the fancy stuff – date nectar is a rich source of natural minerals and anti-oxidants. It’s suitable for you vegans, unlike honey. Filled with nutrients, minerals and natural energy to help keep you fit and healthy. Sounds better than the gym, eh?!

Fresh dates are made up of a soft, easily digestible flesh and simple sugars like fructose and dextrose. The fruit is proper rich in dietary fibre, Vitamin A, antioxidants and is also an excellent source of iron, potassium, calcium, manganese, copper and magnesium. PLUS it has antibacterial properties that are more effective than honey. The list goes on and on, pet!

Guess what else? Date Nectar has a lower GI [glycaemic index] value than sugar meaning blood sugar levels don’t rise as quickly. So, you can get as excited as you like over your Canny chocolate milk! 

But most importantly, it works an absolute TREAT with chocolate. Meaning that it tastes wicked, while also being totally natural and allowing us to get away with using zero refined sugar. Job, done.

OK… so is that enough info? You get it, Canny is lush and we’ve smashed the stereotype of sugar-filled drinks, that are bad for your health. So, stop sipping so much sugar and get your lips round our lush bottles of milk. And next time you go to make a hot choccy, remember that a typical mug with whipped cream packs 400 calories and 43 grams of sugar—more than a can of Coke. Make the Canny choice this Christmas!
