I couldn’t live without chocolate, it’s one of my favorite foods. That’s why I’m in love with this ultimate vegan chocolate shake, it’s creamy, healthy, sweet and it tastes really awesome. You don’t have to remove chocolate from your diet, but try to eat it in moderation and choose the healthiest chocolate you can find, I love vegan dark chocolate with minimum 70% cocoa content.
This recipe is sugar-free, it’s made with homemade rice milk, frozen bananas (you can also use regular bananas), dates, ground cinnamon and unsweetened cocoa powder. It’s a super healthy drink! I love to eat this shake with soy whipped cream, chocolate syrup and chocolate chips on top, but you can choose your favorite toppings.
You can use carob powder instead of the cocoa powder, remove the dates or use another sweetener, add fruits, nuts, seed, spices or whatever. This homemade shake is much healthier than store bought and the kids love it, it’s good for their health and it’s additive and preservative free.
If you don’t like rice milk, don’t worry! You can use any other plant milk instead, there are a lot of alternatives you can buy or you can ever prepare it yourself. You’ll find some recipes on the blog, they are really easy to make at home and they are much cheaper. Don’t use cow milk (or another kind of animal milk) because it’s a cruel and unhealthy product and there are a lot of healthy calcium sources.
The shake is really creamy because I’ve used frozen bananas, in fact, you can make ice cream using only frozen bananas, it’s a super healthy alternative and it tastes amazing! You only have to blend them in a powerful blender and you can also add your favorite fruits. Add more milk for a less creamy texture.
I’ve always loved milkshakes, but they usually are full of sugar, fat and other unhealthy ingredients, so I hardly ever consumed them. If you choose the right ingredients and prepare a healthy drink like this ultimate vegan chocolate shake, you don’t have to be afraid of gaining weight, although I recommend you to eat this shake with no toppings if you consume it often.
