Creamy, smooth, and luxurious! This easy vegan chocolate milkshake satisfies our biggest chocolate cravings. It tastes like an indulgent treat, but has just four simple, healthy ingredients. Plus it comes together in just 2 minutes. What makes it a “healthier” milkshake is using whole food banana instead of processed, sugary ice cream.
Ingredients for Vegan Chocolate Milkshake
For this milkshake you’ll need:
- Your favorite plant-based milk. Most often I use homemade almond or cashew.
- Banana. Frozen banana works best to achieve a thicker, creamier consistency. But you can use fresh if you don’t have frozen on hand.
- Cacao powder. I use Navita’s organic. Or simply substitute cocoa powder.
- Maple syrup. Or your favorite sweetener such as dates, agave, etc.
Also, a sweet lady named Catarine left a comment that she swaps out the cacao powder for a vegan chocolate protein powder for her 4 year old daughter’s breakfast and I love that idea. (If you’re interested in more chocolate smoothie goodness, also check out the Chunky Monkey Protein Smoothie.) Cheers and hope you enjoy!
