#CHEATEATS: Healthier Chocolate Milkshake


Darn right, it’s better (for you) than yours.


  • 1 to 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 ripe bananas, frozen and cut into pieces
  • 2 tbsps cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp nut butter of choice (I use almond butter)
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • Optional add-ins or toppings: 1-2 dates, 1/2 tsp of vanilla, frozen or fresh cherries/strawberries, hemp seeds, nuts, etc.


  1. Add almond milk and bananas in a blender and puree until smooth. Adjust almond milk amount for your preferred milkshake consistency.
  2. Add cocoa or cacao powder, nut butter, cinnamon and any other add-ins and blend to your heart’s desire.
  3. Pour in a glass (or mason jar), sprinkle on toppings if feeling fancy and snap a photo of your creation.
  4. Drink your milkshake and watch it bring everyone to the yard.
