Summer is finally here! I’m back from my little blog break to start my favourite season of the year and I’ve got many new recipes and language tips for you. This summer, I’ve fallen in love with nicecream again. Last year, I already shared two smoothie bowl recipes (a tropical smoothie bowl and a red smoothie bowl) as well as my favourite nicecream recipe with you and this year, I’d like to show you even more ideas for refreshing summer drinks.
Today starts a new series: The Milkshake Monday. Every Monday in June, I will post a new milkshake recipe that requires only a few ingredients and a blender. Since milkshakes are usually made with ice cream and I don’t like refined sugar, I’m using frozen bananas instead of ice cream for my recipes. They’re not only healthier, but also far cheaper than ice cream from the dairy case. The first recipe is a classic one for chocolate lovers: a chocolate milkshake with nuts.
Healthy Chocolate Milkshake with Nuts
100 ml cold milk
1 ripe banana
1 teaspoon nut butter or ground nuts
1 teaspoon raw cacao
Chopped and roasted nuts
- Cut the banana in coins and freeze them in a freezing container or freezer bag for at least 12 hours.
- The next day, blend all the ingredients in a blender until the milkshake is smooth and all ingredients are evenly distributed.
- Pour the milkshake into a glass and decorate it at pleasure with toppings such as chopped and roasted nuts, grated dark chocolate, cacao nibs or dried fruit.
Of course, you can also use your milkshake as base for your breakfast. Just pour the mixture into a bowl and decorate it with fruit, nuts or granola. Do you also love milkshakes or do you have another favourite summer drink? Which flavour is your favourite?
