Allergen Information: Contains Peanuts (can be substituted!). Contains coconut.
Special Equipment: Blender
I’ve been making a milkshake similar to this recipe for about a year now. It inspired me to create something that my taste buds really enjoy.
Something with coconut. Something way chocolate-y. Something with Peanut Butter.
I know some of you are thinking: PEANUT BUTTER?!
Yes, we have a kid with an anaphylactic reactions to peanut butter.
So, this is my process: Make sure McCall gets to school (or to bed at night). Come home & make the smoothie. Wash everything thoroughly. Wash my hands. Drink smoothie. Wash smoothie cup. Wash hands again. Brush teeth. Sanitize toothbrush.
I know, I know it sounds crazy, but life-threatening allergies are no joke.
BUT, if I go to all this trouble just to drink this milkshake, it’s probably THAT good 🙂
Next time you’re wanting a milkshake, try this one out. I don’t calorie count, but I can guarantee it’s better for your body than the ones from fast food joints that can have as much as 1,500 calories–and contain NOTHING good for your body.
This milkshake? Cacao nibs, bananas, coconut milk–all nutrient rich foods.
So, yes, you can have your milkshake and eat it too!!
Substitution ideas: If you don’t like peanut butter, or can’t have peanut butter in your household, try almond butter. If you are on the top 8 Elimination diet, try Sunbutter (sunflower seed butter). For the milk, you could also use almond milk or rice milk.
