Forget the unhealthy, sugary milkshakes and try this vegan chocolate milkshake recipe instead! It’s healthy, ready in less than 5 minutes and can even be served for breakfast!
I’ve always loved milkshakes, but they’re often filled with sugar, fat and other unhealthy ingredients…well, this recipe is different! Forget about the sugary, dairy-based milkshakes and try my version! It’s ready in less than 5 minutes and you can even serve it for breakfast! Top it with some crunchy cereals and enjoy a delicious breakfast dessert! 🙂
For this vegan chocolate milkshake recipe, I used my favorite milk from Joya, the Soya Choco Drink. If you don’t want to eat soy, they also have a delicious oats milk with cocoa. This drink is so good then you can simply drink it by itself. It tastes just like regular chocolate milk! I also love their vanilla-flavored ones. Yum!
I’ve used these awesome vegan drinks in other recipes so far, such as my vegan chicken soup, vegan vanilla cheesecake and roasted garlic pasta. I love that they’re very versatile and can be used for both sweet and savory recipes (the unflavored ones, of course).
For this vegan chocolate milkshake, I used frozen bananas as a base. If you want to turn this into a refreshing Summer dessert, feel free to use 3-4 scoops of your favorite vegan ice cream brand. This healthy milkshake is pretty low in calories and naturally sweet. It’s also fat-free and cholesterol-free, unlike regular milkshakes which are basically sugar bombs.
Besides being incredibly delicious, this vegan milkshake is also a great source of potassium, as there’s over 400 mg of potassium in only a medium-sized banana. It’s also a good source of vitamin C which helps you boost your immune system, vitamin B-6, vitamin A and E, folate, manganese, carotene and more! Plus, it’s a great source of fibers! 🙂
Bottom line: you get a lot more from bananas than just their deliciously sweet flavor, so take advantage of it and use them to make milkshakes as well! 🙂
