Chocolate Milkshake 2

Sometimes we don’t want something to taste green (for some of us, that might be most of the time 🙂 ).  We just need CHOCOLATE!  That is where this Almond Milk Chocolate Milkshake comes into play.  Now you can have your chocolate milkshake without feeling guilty! This milkshake is full of good stuff AND tastes great.  Next time you feel the need to eat ice cream or devour a box of cookies, try this first!

Cacao NibsA note about Cacao Nibs: Cacao nibs are just raw, shaved pieces of cacao beans, the basis of chocolate.  If consumed by themselves, they don’t taste like the processed chocolate we know, but more like coffee beans.  If you eat them alone, you will notice how much processing, sugar, and/or milk must go into chocolate to make it taste like we like it.  Unlike regular chocolate, cacao nibs are considered a superfood and provide your body with some amazing benefits, including antioxidants, minerals, and fiber. Who knew?!

I prefer to make my own vanilla almond milk so I can make sure I have only the ingredients I want in it, but if you are going to buy it, try this Pacific Vanilla Almond Milk–it’s wonderful! For a nut-free option, try rice or hemp milk or organic cow’s milk if you have no dairy allergy/intolerance!

Cheers 🙂
