I know you’re all over the place (literally!) but here in Vancouver, Canada, things were hot the past few months (conveniently, while I was knocked out, in the house, healing from two broken wrists). That heat seems to have come and gone- somewhat at least. Oh well…. I guess I’ll have to make up for it next summer? (Or go on vacation somewhere really toasty =D ).
This shake would be perfect for those super hot days- it is very refreshing, absolutely delicious, and has a lot of beneficial ingredients. However, you know you’ll be getting pumped and sweaty at the gym at least once this fall, so why not make this Coconut Chocolate Brownie Shake your congratulatory, post-workout prize? You can check out our video for it, here, if you want to see how it’s done. Oh, and it goes really well with that other macaroon on the side- read on to know what I mean!
- 200g frozen banana(apx 2 bananas- spotty, peeled, and chopped)
- 1cup almond or soy milk
- 1tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
- 1/4tsp vanilla bean powder
- 1tsp maca powder(optional- but great!)
- 1tsp chia seeds(you could also use flax seeds- both are great for Omegas!)
- 1 Double Chocolate Macaroons
Place your bananas, almond milk, cacao powder, vanilla bean, maca powder, and chia seeds in a blender and blend until smooth. Then, add your Double Chocolate Macaroon and blend until it is broken apart, but still a little chunky. Then... you drink it! (Note: you may need a spoon to scoop out some of the macaroon pieces... yum!)
You can also see our recipe video for it here. (PS- sorry the sound is a little wonky… it was super hot and the AC was on without us even realizing it!)
Thank you for checking it out and I hope you enjoy
