The Krispy Kreme milkshake is a treat, and should always be treated as such, a roast dinner is also a treat, and should by no means be consumed on a daily basis. So if faced with the decision to have one of the above ‘treats’, what one would you opt for…and don’t say both (you know you were going to)! Truth is both a Krispy Kreme milkshake and a full on roast dinners both deliver the same amount of calories per serving, a hefty 612kcal. In fact, the strawberry milkshake they do comes in at a shocking 800kcal, this is almost half of an average women’s daily calorie requirements! So should you be faced with this decision, for goodness sake go for a good ol’ roast dinner, the calories in a roast contain some nutrition such as protein, starchy carbs, fibre and vitamins and minerals, whereas the calories in a shake are little more than ‘empty calories’ i.e. providing nothing more than calories and a little calcium from the milk.
