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! 🙂
