Cherry Chocolate Shake

Another blog I follow is the Detoxinista who has some wonderful tips, tricks, and recipes. The most recent of these, that I have discovered, is this delicious green shake. I have made it twice now. Attempt #1 ended up looking much more like a green smoothie. Too much green, not enough of the chocolate! Typically when I am experimenting with new smoothie/shake recipes I need a few tries to get the hang of it {plus, my tastes aren't always 100% what the recipe creator's was at the time} but I am pretty sure I got this right the second time around. I altered it slightly from the original vegan recipe, but of course it can be played with to fit your taste buds! It really tastes like a chocolate milk shake!


The Recipe:
Cherry Chocolate Shake
Recipe adapted from {The Detoxinista}
Makes 1 large serving
Ingredients:
1 cup almond milk + a little extra
1 cup frozen, chopped cherries
1 frozen, sliced banana
1/4 avocado
1-2 handfuls spinach
1/2ish teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder {the original recipe calls for raw cacao}

Instructions:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy
  2. Add a little extra liquid as needed to keep blender moving
  3. Pop a straw in that baby, and enjoy how tasty this healthy little shake is!
