Alooooooha! Sometimes you just want something fun and indulgent! I love this shake as a cool down in the afternoons and sometimes after a workout and we top with a dairy free ice-cream (homemade or store bought sometimes) just when we are getting desserty with it ;) If you want to make for a party make mini shakes in mini little glasses! Its a fun way to serve a crowd! See if they can tell its vegan, dairy free, non gmo, processed free and the list of unnecessaries goes on!
CHOCOLATE CARAMEL PEANUT BUTTER VEGAN SHAKE RECIPE
In this smoothie feel free to omit the vegan protein powder and add a little more cacao to taste.
The coconut sugar and dates are for that caramel taste more than anything! Coconut Sugar is a better choice of sugar than brown or white or even natural options like agave and maple syrup because it does not spike blood sugar levels as fast! That is why its preferred in our home.
ALSO, if you don't like bananas, just had another 6 nut milk cubes!
Lastly, its also enjoyable adding ice and more liquid! (This is a better option for those that are not using a high powered blender.
- 1 tablespoon cacao
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar or 3 medjool dates
- 1 heaping tablespoon fav nut butter
- 3 frozen bananas
- 6 almond or cashew milk ice cubes
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 scoop high quality vegan protein/probiotic powder
- dash fav almond milk ( the less you use the thicker it will be!)
Blend until smooth. Top with homemade or store bought dairy free chocolate or vanilla ice-cream if going all out! ;)
