BEST VEGAN CHOCOLATE BANANA MILKSHAKE
Decadent and delicious, this is my favorite vegan chocolate banana milkshake ever! Turn this into a protein shake by adding a scoop of your favorite vegan protein powder.
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon or so of cinnamon
- 1 scoop protein powder, optional (use plain, vanilla or chocolate)
Place everything in blender, blend away until combines. Serves one.
Currently I’m using Garden of Life Protein powders. I like that their original powder is not sweetened with stevia or any other sweetener as I prefer to sweeten mine with fruits of choice. A few other plant based protein powders that I do recommend, but do not have unsweetened choices, are Vega One, Sun Warrior and any hemp protein powders (pref. organic), To find out about more protein powder options with reviews, check out this post, Vegan Protein Powders For Smoothies: My Big Guide, from Kathy of Lunchboxbunch.com.
Make raw by using homemade almond milk and raw protein powder.
Tip…always freeze your older bananas instead of throwing them away so you will have them on hand for smoothies or raw banana ice creams like my Almond Chunky Monkey Ice Cream or Chocolate Banana Ice Cream…they are sweet and super healthy at this stage.
