Chocolate Milkshake Smoothie 2.000
Sep 9, 2011

This one's deceptively healthful and protein-rich. The coconut oil has lauric acid, which is good for children’s growing brains. The cacao nibs are abundant with antioxidants.

Servings: 2
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews or raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 10 ice cubes


Combine the banana, cashews or sunflower seeds, cocoa powder (to taste), cacao nibs, almond milk, coconut oil and ice cubes in a blender. Puree until smooth.

Divide between glasses; serve immediately.

VARIATION: Optional items that can be added include flax seed oil (for omega 3 essential fatty acids); a handful of dark, leafy greens (for calcium, vitamins and fiber); green food powder (such has powdered spinach, for calcium and vitamins); raw apple cider (for blood alkalinity).
