raw spiced chocolate milkshake
Ok, last raw food recipe of the week! I have a few more raw recipes to share with you in the coming weeks, but I’m afraid that I have some yummy sugary desserts and carbs coming your way next. :)
In all seriousness though, while I completely enjoyed learning about the raw food diet and all of the creative tips and techniques essential to maintaining a healthy and delicious raw menu plan, I think I confirmed that the full-on raw food diet is not for me. I still really love my pastas, and the occasional meat dish, and sweets in moderation. And especially living in the Midwest with freezing winters, I realized that I really appreciate warm meals, which don’t really exist in a raw diet. But I discovered that raw food can be seriously tasty and good for you, so I am genuinely looking forward to incorporating more raw recipes/techniques/ingredients into my weekly menus.
And I will definitely be making this raw spiced chocolate milkshake again soon! Oh my heavens. This was another inspiration from my friend Rachel, and it was soooo good. I cheated a bit and used storebought almond milk, which some debate whether it’s authentically raw. But either way, this one is so good for you and ridiculously tasty. Hope you enjoy!
A simple, sweet and delicious recipe for a raw spiced chocolate milkshake.
- 2 cups almond milk (homemade or storebought)
- 2 Tbsp. agave nectar or honey
- 3 frozen bananas
- 1 Tbsp. raw cacao powder
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper powder (add more or less to taste)
- 1/4 tsp. chili powder
Combine all ingredients in a blender until combined. Serve immediately, or pop the mixture in the freezer for an hour to give it an extra chill.
Serve topped with shaved cacao nibs or a sprinkle of cinnamon if desired.
