Healthy Cacao Shake
One thing I really missed when going dairy and refined sugar free was a chocolate milkshake! I started playing round with a few ingredients including cacao powder and fresh mint leaves. I finally came up with something that isn’t just a far healthier option but tastes a lot better in my opinion.
2 small glasses (roughly 750ml)
Prep: 2 mins
- 1 ripe medium avocado
- 500 ml of unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- 2-3 table spoons maple syrup
- handful of fresh mint leaves
- tablespoon of chia seeds (optional)
- juice of 1/2 a lime
- pinch of salt
Add all the ingredients together into a blender and blend until smooth, add more milk if you prefer it thinner texture.
Tip: Leave it in the fridge for 30-60 minutes to make is more refreshing or blend a couple ice cubes into it.
