Hi! I'm Karen, a stay at home mom and blogger. Mostly I write about the new foods and recipes I've been making at my house. I like nutella, avocados, muddy buddies, mushrooms, tomatoes, peaches, berries, beans and rice, dark chocolate, cilantro, peanut butter, fried eggs and a million other types of foods. Most of the time, I like to make really easy and simple recipes--that's why I use my slow cooker a lot! I hope you find my posts helpful! Please comment and let me know when you make one of my recipes!

Healthy, Vegan Chocolate Shake (only 182 calories and tastes like a Frosty)

This vegan chocolate shake is low in calories and tastes like a Wendy's Frosty!

Even when I’m trying to eat healthy and lower my calorie intake I still want my chocolate fix.  In these times I really try to be creative and make something that will taste awesome and trick my taste buds into thinking I’ve had a delicious dessert full of calories!  This is one of my favorite tricks lately.  It’s so simple with only 3 ingredients but it seriously tastes so awesome…it has the consistency of a chocolate shake–kind of like a Frosty.  This recipe is also vegan and has no added sugars!

Vegan Chocolate Shake:

  • 170 grams of sliced bananas (about 1 1/2 bananas)
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder

1.  Place the sliced bananas in a plastic bag or container and freeze until frozen solid.

2. Once bananas are frozen you’re ready to make your shake.  Pour almond milk into the bottom of a blender.  Sprinkle with cocoa powder,  Top with frozen bananas.

3.  Blend until smooth.

4.  Serve and enjoy!
