Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shake

Happy *almost* Valentine’s Day!

I love all the chocolate-covered goodies this time of year, but this February I pledged to eat refined sugar-free, so I am developing creative ways to make typical Valentine treats healthier!

Today I am sharing my chocolate-covered strawberry shake recipe! ❤

Here’s what you’ll need for 1 serving:

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 frozen, organic strawberries
  • 1/4 frozen, organic raspberries
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 serving Protein Powder (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon almond butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon maca powder
  • Raw cacao nibs and fresh raspberries for topping

Combine all the ingredients in a blender, whirl them around, and pour your shake into a tall glass. Add a cute paper straw and top with cacao nibs and fresh raspberries.

I especially recommend organic strawberries since inorganic strawberries are essentially “pesticide sponges” and are listed in the “Dirty Dozen,” or the worst foods to eat if they are not organic.

This recipe makes one serving, so double the ingredients and share with a loved one! Spread the love during this season of love–one strawberry shake at a time. ❤
