I made a chocolate milkshake!
Guess what’s lurking in there? Hint: it’s healthy.
Did you guess?
Did you guess…spinach?
Yes. Spinach. For real. And it’s really good.
Really. It tastes like chocolate-y, banana-y, strawberry goodness.
With a side of invisible spinach.
Here’s what goes in:
- 1 cup vanilla soymilk
- 2 teaspoons sweetened cocoa powder
- 5-7 frozen strawberries
- 1/2 banana
- 1 cup spinach + a little more
And here’s what goes on:
Blend all the ingredients together. In a blender. Or in a cup, using your hand blender.
We can all handle that, I think.
Now, I garnished my smoothie/milkshake/midday dessert with chocolate chips, but I don’t actually recommend this because the frozen strawberries make this very cold and the chips turn into rock hard little chunks of chocolate. Not my favorite. I don’t like chocolate chips or chunks in my ice cream either, for the same reason. If you’re mad about chocolate and aren’t afraid of busting a tooth, have at it with the chips. You could also top this with toasted coconut, sprinkles, granola, whatever sounds good. You could just drink it with a straw.
It’s slightly chocolate-y, but the flavors that really shine through are the strawberries and banana.
Not the spinach. You can’t even taste it.
