Raw Choccy Milkshake

Chocolate? – check. Yummy? – check. Healthy? – CHECK!

To look at, this milkshake resembles something you would buy at the corner store and then feel guilty about drinking later on.

Check out the ingredients! It will surely surprise you of it’s healthiness at your first gulp.  Tastes like naughtiness in a cup, but is so full of goodness your body will be singing your praises! You could even drink this for breakfast and set yourself up for a great day with energy and fuel.

After I made this, I must confess that I licked everything that had touched this milkshake. I was a bit sad that it had all gone and considered making another lot but decided to wait for tomorrow…I only had one avocado left :(

This recipe is from My New Roots. If you haven’t checked out this blog yet, you ought to be smacked!

Raw Choccy Milkshake

• ¼ cup hemp seeds (or use soaked almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds etc.). I used almonds for this.
• 2 heaping Tbsp. raw cacao powder
• 1 Avocado
• 1 very large frozen banana (or 2 small) 
• 2 Tbsp. raw honey, agave, or maple syrup
• dash sea salt 
• ¾ – 1 cup water (I ended up adding another 2 cups of water as it was very thick).
• 4 ice cubes

Directions:
1. Blend all the ingredients together; add water to thin if desired. It’s a thick one, folks! 
And although the urge to chug may take over, don’t forget to “chew” your milkshake for better digestion! Very important.
