Healthy Chocolate Shake – Tastes Like a Frosty

Healthy Chocolate Shake – Tastes Like a Frosty

healthy chocolate shake frosty banana chia seed cocoa frozenI found this recipe at and wanted to test it out for myself. It was really good but I made a couple minor adjustments for my taste.


  • The recipe calls for a frozen banana right? Well I put a whole banana, peel and all in the freezer. When I took the banana out of the freezer, it was so frozen solid that I couldn’t get the peel off. Oops. Learn from me and pre-peel and slice the banana before freezing. They freeze up faster this way too, it doesn’t take long at all. Maybe a couple of hours or so. I’ve got a couple separate baggies of bananas in my freezer so I have them on hand for when I’m craving these.

  • The frozen banana really adds to the “frostiness” of the shake making it thicker so I absolutely recommend it although you can use a room temperature banana. The shake will just be more liquid but still super chocolaty good.

  • I added 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. It made the shake even richer.
  • I also added a packet of organic stevia to my husband’s shake because he likes very sweet things but mine was sweet enough for me without it. It’s your preference.

YUM-EEE is all I can say about this shake. It’s chocolaty AND healthy AND filling AND chocolaty! Did I say chocolaty?

The kiddies will LOVE these too and never suspect they are healthy. I have a feeling I will be making a LOT of these this summer.

{ I suppose you could experiment with some ‘adult spirits’ like Baileys in place of the almond milk and have yourself a deliciously intoxicating shake on a warm summer night. }

  • 1 cup original unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana (see tip for the frozen banana)
  • 1½ tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon chia seeds (I used a whole teaspoon)
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (I used 2 for more richness)
  • 10 - 15 ice cubes (The more ice, the thicker it is. I used 15 and it was thick like a frosty)
  • **Optional: 1 packet of stevia**
  1. Combine all ingredients in your blender or Nutribullet until all the ice is blended and smooth.
  2. If your shake isn't sweet enough for your taste, you can always add a packet of stevia but mine was very chocolaty and frosty-like without it.
