Mom came up with this Chocolate Shake and it really is a perfect mix of ingredients for a perfect flavor.  It's made from healthy whole foods so it's a delicious treat that you don't have to feel guilty eating!

1 c. cold water (like really cold from the fridge water)
1/2 c. ice
1/3 c. raw almonds
6-8 pitted dates (about 1/2 c.)

  • Put above ingredients in blender
  • Blend 90 seconds or until smooth
3 whole frozen bananas (6 halves cut into 1 inch pieces- should raise the almond date milk from about  2 cups to 4 cups)
1/4 t. coconut extract (Don't leave this out!  It's what makes the shake not taste like a banana/chocolate shake)
1/2 t. vanilla extract
 8 t. cocoa powder
  • Blend until smooth, scraping down sides of blender as necessary.
  • Pour a nice tall glass and enjoy!  We like to eat it with a spoon.
  • Serves 2-4
