Banana Chocolate Milk

Today was a very long Saturday indeed. School work for my MBA capstone project and house cleaning – pah! Then I got to thinking about all the things in my cupboard that I should be using… mainly chocolate, and I had made some almond milk last night for bananas foster so thought a warm drink would help me wind down. And it did! Except I’m back on my laptop writing this – the curse of blogging while you’re inspired ; )


  • 1.5 cups fresh almond milk
  • 2-3 tsp cacao powder
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Stevia to taste if it’s not sweet enough… I don’t like things too sweet.


  • Blend everything in high speed blender until smooth and warm (or blend and warm in saucepan on low heat until desired temp.)

I suppose I do love busy – feeling like I accomplished something and am really enjoying rest time. Happy weekend!


PS. I also discovered that banana slices topped with cacao nibs makes a yummy snack as I devoured the garnish!

  1. Sounds amazing! I do this with a frozen banana as a smoothie, but this much more appropriate for the season!

    • Pleased you like it! I use Navitas cacao powder, nibs, and berries as I can easily get them from Whole Foods. When I am organized, I also get stuff from my friend Jon-Michael @ Love Street Living Foods; he also stocks cacao butter, the best raw vegan chocolate spreads ever and a bunch of other hard-to-find goodies.
