Creamy Chocolate Milkshake (Dairy Free)

This “milkshake” has all of the sweetness of a normal chocolate milkshake, but without the refined sugar, dairy or processed ingredients found in the original versions. Plus the benefits of raw cacao powder (which contains antioxidants and magnesium just to name a few) and raw honey (which is rich in enzymes, vitamins and minerals) make this drink irresistible.

Add to Vitamix:
1 cup almond milk
1 frozen banana
1 tablespoon cacao powder
2 teaspoons raw honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into glass and enjoy!

  9. Thanks Miz Helen. May 2012 be the best year yet with lots of chocolate to go around!

  10. I love adding raw cocoa to anything in the blender – if you added some kale no one would know…

  11. I am going to try that next time Melanie. Thanks for the suggestion-my whole family loves kale. So with some cocoa, I am sure they would drink this down in no time!

    My son is allergic to milk, can I sub with organic plain soy and perhaps almond extract(which is actually 100% made from the peach seed)

  17. Hello!

    Yes, that would work very well. Thanks for the info on almond extract!

  2. […] Strawberry Almond Milk Posted on January 27, 2012 by laura This recipe was inspired by the lovely Amber over at The Tasty Alternative. Amber recently posted a wonderful recipe for Homemade Almond Milk. Although I used to make my own Almond Milk all the time; admittedly I have been slacking lately and buying it at my local health food store–time to change that! Fresh, pure ingredients are always better. A great read on what’s wrong with packaged Almond and Coconut Milks can be found here. My daughter always spots the Organic Strawberry Milk at the health food store and asks to get it. Have you seen how much sugar is in these “healthy milk” packages?! It boggles my mind that they get away with claiming these drink as healthy.  After spotting some strawberries at the store today, I decided to see if I could create my own version of Strawberry Milk at home. My daughter came back twice asking for more milk, so I think the recipe was a success! This milk is creamy, fresh and lightly sweetened. Almonds are rich in calcium, iron, magnesium, protein and Vitamin E. Strawberries are an incredible source of Vitamin C.  Ingredients: 1 cup almonds 6 cups water 2 cups strawberries, sliced 3 Tbsp. raw honey1 tsp. vanilla 1/8 tsp. liquid vanilla stevia (optional) In a large bowl, soak 1 cup of almonds in 6 cups of water for at least 6 hours. I like to replace the soaking water at least once during this time, if possible. After 6 hours (or longer), drain and rinse the almonds.  Place the almonds with 6 cups of fresh water in a blender or Vitamix. Blend on high for 2 minutes. Strain the milk with a nut milk bag (or strainer). Set the almond pulp aside and put the strained milk back into the Vitamix. Add in the strawberries, honey and stevia. Blend on high for 1 minute.
