Brain Food Recipe Review: Chocolate Banana Milkshake
Looking for a sweet little morning or mid-afternoon pick-me-up without the guilt of a ton of sugar or calories and some serious brain boosting?
I highly recommend this chocolate banana milkshake!
So, basically, kudos AARP and Laurel!
Anyway, you can find the entire recipe over at Recipes for Better Brain Health: Chocolate Banana Milkshake (just scroll a little down the page), but I’ll sum it up for you here:
You only need 5 super simple ingredients:
- 1/3 cup of raw almonds.
- 1 ripe banana.
- 1 tbsp of dark cocoa powder.
- 1 tsp of honey.
- 10 ice cubes.
Now, you only need 5 super simple steps!
- Soak the almonds in a bowl of water for at least 6 hours; overnight if you prefer.
- Drain the almonds and place them in a blender with 1 cup of water.
- Blend the almonds until they’re finely chopped.
- Add the honey, banana, cocoa powder, and ice cubes.
- Blend until smooth and enjoy!
- I soaked my almonds for 7 hours and they were soft enough to be easily finely chopped.
- I didn’t use quite an entire cup of water in the blender. I felt like that’d be too much water, with the ice cubes. Because the milkshake came out so thick, I maaaaaaaaaaaybe should’ve used the entire cup.
- I added an extra teaspoon of honey for my own personal taste.
So, go give it a try! Obviously, it’s extremely easy and, aside from having to wait 6 hours for the almonds to soak, extremely quick, too.
