Vegan Chocolate covered strawberry shake
This decadent breakfast shake is vegan, dairy free, and gluten-free. Start your day with the flavors of chocolate and strawberries with satisfying cocoa nibs.
- Ingredients: 1/4 cup strawberries fresh or frozen
- 1 cup Nondairy chocolate milk I used Silk Cashew for creaminess
- 3 tbsp. Cocoa nibs
- 1/4 cup yogurt of choice I used coconut dairy free yogurt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- sugar to taste Depending on sweetness of berries
Method: add all ingredients to blender and blend. Process at least a minute on high. Taste and adjust sugar before pouring out of blender.
Variations: For added nutrition, add 1 tbsp. ground flax seed or rolled oats.
May use 1 scoop protein powder of choice.
May also add 1 frozen banana.
Use any sweetener you like, or omit all together.
We all remember the golden rule. But how often do we take seriously the part about treating ourselves well? This shake is an easy way to do that.
Sure, we do our best to treat others well. If you’re anything like me, you might forget to take a little time for yourself now and then. Maybe nutrition takes a backseat. I threw this shake together because I needed a way to get Probiotics into my body. To my delight, it came out creamy, delicious, and oh-so-chocolatey. I thought I made a smoothie, but I had crafted a shake. If you’ve never had cocoa nibs and you’re a serious chocolate lover, buckle up. They’re also a superfood!
I’m posting this with two special ladies in mind. My mother who loved strawberry picking in the fields of Germany. We always joked they would have to weigh her before she went to the fields and when she came out instead of her basket! She can have this shake every morning and she’ll be loading up on nutrition, too.
I’m also thinking of my sister in law who is vegan, treat yourself! What’s your favorite healthy snack?
