Raw Vegan Creamy Chocolate Shake

Creamy... Healthy... Yummy... Chocolate Shake!

In the mood for chocolate?   Try my Raw Vegan Creamy Chocolate Shake!  It will not only satisfy your chocolate craving, it will fill you up in a healthy way as well.  Plus it is quick and easy to make. 

3/4 to 1 cup fresh water (start with 3/4 cup)
1 large apple (sweet are best) cored and cut into chunks
1 medjool date (or date of choice) seed removed
1 heaping Tbsp raw almond butter
1 heaping Tbsp raw cacao powder
1 heaping Tbsp hemp seed
1 frozen banana (medium to large) cut into chunks
ice - about 1/2 cup or couple large cubes

Put all ingredients in order into your vitamix/blender.  I start with 3/4 cup water as sometimes the consistency changes due to the size of fruit, etc.  Blend and add a little water at a time, if needed, until a smooth and creamy consistency is achieved.  In the vitamix this takes about 30-45 seconds.  Pour into a very tall glass and enjoy.  Unless you want to share (ha!).


This delicious, quick and easy chocolate fix is healthy and oh so yummy!  In fact, it's hard to not gulp the whole thing down at once, but try hard to drink it slowly and enjoy!

Rocki, I made a smoothy inspired by yours using almond milk, hemp protein powder, banana and cocoa powder. Now I am looking for a celebratory treat to make and I think your figgy brownies may be it.

Melly that sounds delicious! The brownies can be made in a a huge variety of ways. In fact, I have other ideas buzzing around in my head :)
