Strawberry Chocolate Swirl Milkshake

| Drinks and Smoothies

924Hmmmmm……Thick, creamy, sweet strawberry milkshake with rich, dark chocolate swirl…..All overt fat free, cholesterol free and packed with fibre and vitamins.  All around, you are doing your body a favour by drinking this…..In fact, by making this right now, you would actually be demonstrating what a responsible individual you are…..I’m just saying…

921Let’s be honest, I’m sure you don’t need any encouragement;)

Ingredients

  • 3 very ripe large, frozen bananas, broken into thirds
  • 1 ripe, fresh banana
  • 1/2 cup – 1 cup frozen strawberies
  • stevia if additional sweetness is desired
  • a bit of water to blend
  • maple syrup or agave
  • raw cacao powder or cocoa powder

Instructions

Pour a little bit of water in the base of your blender – maybe 2 tablespoons to start with.  Add your fresh banana on top of this.  Now add the frozen banana and berries.  Blend into a smooth milkshake,  cautiously adding bits of water as needed to achieve the right consistency.  Do not add too much water as you end up with a runny milkshake – and who likes that!  Taste….if more sweetness is needed, add a touch of stevia, agave or maple syrup to taste.

To make the chocolate sauce, start with 1 tablespoon each of maple syrup, cacao and water and add it all to a small glass.  Whisk this together with a mini whisk or a teaspoon.  Taste and adjust to your palate.  If you want it more chocolatey, add more cacao (I use WAY more cacao than 1 tablespoon), if you want it sweeter, add more syrup.  If you like the taste but want it runnier, add a touch more water.  When it is smooth and tastes good, pour teaspoons of this sauce down the sides of an empty jar.  Then pour some milkshake into the jar.  Stop and layer the milkshake with layers of sauce.  Keep doing this until the jar is full.  Pour all leftover sauce on top and give a little swirl…I added some of my raw brownie bits and raw cacao nibs on top for extra crunch.  I will post the recipe for my raw brownie bits at some point too:)

Enjoy!
