This Dairy-Free Chocolate Almond Raspberry Shake is a decadent, yet healthy, creamy delicious treat with deep chocolate flavor and exotic notes of sweet and tart raspberries, all whipped up in one delicious shake that’s thick enough to eat with a spoon!

 

 

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups of unsweetened plant based vanilla milk
  • 2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 2 tablespoons of raw almonds (or 1 tbsp. raw almond butter)
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract (I used alcohol-free vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup of frozen raspberries
  • 2 full drops of alcohol-free liquid stevia (or ½ tsp. pure stevia extract- I prefer NuNaturals brand)*
  • ½ a frozen, ripe banana (or you could sub mango)

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients into the blender in the order listed and blend on low, then progress to high until thick and creamy.
  2. Scoop the mixture into a tall glass and top with frozen or fresh raspberries. You can also add raw cacao nibs, a dusting of cocoa powder, and almond slices for a pretty garnish too. I hope you love it!

Notes

*Not a fan of stevia? You can use a whole, frozen ripe banana instead of ½ a frozen banana but this will add a more prominent banana flavor. Or, use whatever sweetener you prefer. I use NuNaturals brand of stevia because it's sugar-free and that works best for me without me having to use artificial sweeteners or added sugars or syrups. A Medjool date would also be a great option which I have also tried out and loved.
