Simply Healthy Chocolate Shake
Looking for a tasty shake similar to Pumpkin Pie In A Glass but want to boost your greens? Here's a Chocolate Shake For You. Full of tasty cacao and boosted with sweetness from banana this shake is both indulgent and healthy!
Healthy chocolate? Am I making this up? But no! Chocolate milkshakes are a staple here in this house though I can promise you that the ingredient list is full of tasty & nutritious food and not a chocolate substitute. If you’ve never played around with raw cacao powder here’s your chance!
Raw cacao powder is the purest form of chocolate you can consume – and it’s full of healthy perks. That said, it can be a bit bitter tasting. So naturally, dates and bananas are used in this shake to sweeten up the chocolate taste.
While I’ve added a protein powder boost to the ingredients, this shake tastes just as creamy and chocolate-y without it. The banana and avocado make the shake super creamy and the spinach helps boost its nutrition (plus, sneaking greens into your kids diet is pretty much the summary of parenting!).
Enjoy what tastes like an indulgence with this shake but is really a much needed staple.

1 scoop chocolate protein powder (optional)
2 tbs raw cacao powder

Tip: Soak the dates for twenty minutes in warm water prior to blending. It helps break down the dates and keep your shake smooth!
