Cocoa Loco Almond Coconut Shake

This chocolate shake makes me go bananas! Well... it does have a banana. Okay, sorry for the bad humor but this shake is amazing. It's packed with antioxidants, potassium and healthy fats! Plus, it's completely vegan! The cacao nibs give it a great crunch, and remind me of the chocolate chips in the frappuchinos at Starbucks! It tastes like a milkshake, so if you wanna make a healthy smoothie for a friend, try this one! They won't know what hit em'!

Cocoa Loco Almond Coconut Shake
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 banana, preferably frozen
  • 1 Tbs. almond buter
  • 2 Tbs. cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbs. coconut flakes, or shredded
  • handful of ice, depending on how thick you like it
  • 1 Tbs. cacao nibs*
*Cacao nibs are a raw form of chocolate, that have a ton of antioxidants. I love that they add the crunch without any extra sugar. You can find them at Whole Foods or any organic section. If you don't have them, you can just use dark chocolate chips.

Blend, blend, blend! Stir in the cacao nibs, and pour into you favorite glass. Top with extra coconut and cocoa nibs! Enjoy!

XoXo, Stephanie
