The Died and Gone To Heaven Chocolate Thickshake

There are few things as nostalgic to most people than a thick shake.

It is a calling to a time long gone and hopefully to a way of eating that’s in the past as well. Unfortunately the thick in most thick shakes include a long list of less-than-ideal choices for our bodies to thrive, that includes processed ice-cream and many lab-created chemicals/food-like products.

So I decided it was time to let you in on a little secret… The secret to velvety, rich and decadent shakes every single time. Decadent yes and simple, natural and nutritious as well.

Frozen banana.

That’s it. That’s the secret. It’s that easy (and cheap!) that you may not believe me. Easier still is that you don’t even need to cut them up! Each week we buy bananas, peel them, break them up roughly and freeze in glass containers for our smoothies and shakes throughout the week, it couldn’t be easier.

This particular recipe is vegan and refined sugar-free (of course!) and could work for any time of day. You will receive a good dose of healthy fats and antioxidants via the coconut oil and raw cacao whilst still feeling like you are enjoying a treat.

You may already have the ingredients at home so let’s get blending…
