If you told me that I’d love eating healthy 2 years ago, I’d laugh in your face. But when I made the transition to vegetarian, I told myself I’d eat find healthy foods that I actually love to eat and CRAVE. This chocolate milkshake is one of them. It’s absolutely DELICIOUS! The milkshake I drink every morning comes out to about 16 fl oz. It’s super filling as well so you won’t be craving snacks between breakfast and lunch.
2 1/2 frozen bananas
2-3 strawberries (optional)
A sprinkle of blueberries (optional)
1 1/5 heaping spoonfuls of cacao powder
2 heaping spoonfuls of almond butter
Unsweetened almond milk
Put all ingredients into your blender (I use a Vitamix). I start off with bananas first followed by the strawberries and blueberries (optional) followed by cacao, almond butter, and almond milk. I usually eyeball the milk and fill it up as close to the top as possible without going over the top of all the previous ingredients. It’s important to put enough milk or your blender could overheat. All that’s left to do is blend until smooth!
This milkshake comes in at a whopping 500 calories of pure HEALTHY deliciousness (250 if you cut the ingredients in half to make 1 cup of chocolate milkshake). This means it will keep you feeling full, especially since it has roughly 13.5 grams of purely natural protein!
Let me know if you try this out or if you have any other healthy smoothie or milkshake creations you love!
