Raw Chocolate Coconut Hemp Shake

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Raw-Chocolate-Coconut-Hemp-Shake-4This shake is filled with all-things-yummy.  There isn’t one ingredient that I like over the other so I am in good shape. :)  Ok, I might have fibbed now that I have put some thought into it… peanut butter… all things peanut butter make me swoon.

The key in making a thick, velty, creamy shake is all in the banana. And not just any banana. First off, it must be ripe.  I am talking about a banana that is sporting a brown poka-dotted sports coat, if you know what I mean.

Secondly, it needs to be frozen.  If you have made banana ice cream before, you understand the wonder consistency that it creates.  It will not only add the coldness, smooth texture but also the thick viscosity that every shake offers.

A fresh banana would leave you with the impression that you are drinking a shake hours ago and it had been left sitting on the kitchen windowsill.

There are so many alterations that could be made to this recipe but I encourage you to give it a try as is… then build from there.  This is one of my husbands favorites.  Every time he drinks it he says, “Man, I would drink that again!”  That is code for… make this for me often, please! lol
