This is a quick post as we are off on our holibobs tomorrow. Lots to do before we jet off to sunnier climes. But I wanted to bring you this quick and easy healthy ‘shake’ made in my brilliant Optimum 9400 from Froothie.
It tastes a bit like a thick chocolate shake, like the ones you get in a certain fast food outlet, but has way less calories.
I used to love those thick shakes. I went through a phase of having them all the time, when I was younger, before I realised I was drinking my own body weight in ice cream each time :D
So, when I bunged these ingredients into my blender, I was shocked at how much this tasted just like a chocolate thick shake.
All it takes is almond milk, vanilla extract, raw cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa), half a frozen banana and some ice cubes. I use one tablespoon of the cacao/cocoa, but you could use two, if you like it more chocolatey.
The good thing with the Optimum 9400, is that it can pulverise the ice and leave the drink with a silky, thick shake like consistency. Have a go and you will see…
