Creamy Chocolate Breakfast Drink

1 minute, 31 seconds Read

Last week, late at night, as John prepared for bed, I was browsing Pinterest on my phone. Sometimes I don’t pin anything on Pinterest at all, but other days I am a maniac and re-pin everything I see. Cute puppies, strange tattoos, 18-layer cakes – you name it. That night, I saw something that caught my attention so much that I decided to make it that morning.

This recipe is based on one that I found and was featured in Babel. If you are on a strictly raw diet, then stick to Kathy’s recipe. For those who are not on a vegan raw diet, you can enjoy the creamy, dreamy chocolate shake that is also healthy and vegan.

It’s been my go-to morning breakfast since I made it for the first time a few weeks ago. It is so delicious. The bananas are only mildly tasted, so even if you don’t like them, give it a try.

Add more cocoa to intensify the chocolate flavor. If you don’t like bananas or can’t eat them, you could substitute all frozen blueberries or strawberries for the same result. Also, I recommend adding flaxseed or spinach to the recipe for extra nutrition. Bottoms up!


  • Chop two bananas ripe (frozen)
  • 1/3 cup frozen blueberries or strawberries
  • Cocoa powder – 2-3 tablespoons
  • Salted almond butter, 2 Tbsp
  • 1 Tbsp of flaxseed meal, optional
  • 1,5-2 cups vanilla almond milk unsweetened (substitute soy or coconut).
  • One dash of agave or stevia nectar, depending on the sweetness of the bananas
  • 1/4 cup of ice
  • One big handful of spinach is optional (not shown here)


  • Blend all ingredients in a mixer until smooth.
  • Add more cocoa powder if you want a shake with more chocolate flavor. Add more agave or stevia if you want it sweeter. Add less ice OR almond milk if you want it thinner.
