If you love smoothies but want something that is a little lighter in texture, this chocolate milkshake is your go-to.
This recipe uses the home-made almond milk we shared recently, and combines other wholesome ingredients including cacao, banana and almond butter.
The result is a velvety, chocolate drink that has a natural sweetness and offers a great way to get your antioxidants in.
This chocolate milkshake is not too rich, too sweet or too creamy – it’s just right.
1 cup almond milk (recipe for home-made almond milk here)
1 tablespoon cacao powder
½ frozen ripe banana
1 teaspoon almond butter
Pinch of vanilla powder
1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional, depending how sweet you want it)
½ teaspoon maca powder (optional)
Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend for about a minute, until well combined.
Serve in a glass and enjoy.
Makes 1 serve.
