There is no reason that one cannot enjoy a chocolate shake when they do not consume dairy products. In fact, this chocolate shake is healthy! It contains very few ingredients but delivers with very big flavor.
1 cup of fresh almond milk*
2 tablespoons of clear agave nectar or raw honey
2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
Several ice cubes
Add all ingredients to a powerful blender and mix until ice is crushed. There should be enough ice incorporated into the shake to make it thick and frosty.
* To prepare one liter of fresh almond milk, soak one cup of organic almonds (raw if possible) in water overnight. Drain and rinse the almonds. Put them into a powerful blender with 4 cups of pure water. Blend until the almonds are broken up.
Using a nut bag, strain the almond milk through catching the leftover almond meal and wringing out the bag to get as much of the milk squeezed out as possible.
Enjoy almond milk in this recipe and in any way you would enjoy cow’s milk. The almond meal can be used in a multitude of recipes such as the one for raw blueberry muffins found on this site!
