chocolate, cinnabon milkshake (healthy – but you wouldn’t know it).

Cinnamon, coconut and chocolate… 3 of life’s most delicious ingredients all in one place!
I woke up this morning with the biggest craving for something thick, creamy and sweet – so what better to satisfy that craving than a chocolate, cinnabon milkshake? (Or better yet, a healthy chocolate, cinnabon milkshake.)
Luckily, I froze some bananas last night and I still had a little bit of my coconut water leftover – it was a sign that this creation had to be made! I love adding my protein powder to my smoothies/milkshakes because it gives it this light and fluffy texture like nothing else. If you prefer to omit it – feel free!
The ‘Chocolate Sauce’ is also totally optional but I think it makes it look way more decadent – especially if you’re trying to convince someone with a sugar addiction (that’s including myself) that this, is in fact, a milkshake.
If you want a slightly thicker or runnier drink – adjust the quantities of the liquids accordingly.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. May it be filled with healthy food and fabulous company!

Method:

  1. Start by blending all of the ingredients for the ‘milkshake’ together. Add ice to thicken or more almond milk/coconut water to make it more runny.
  2. Once you have achieved the consistency desired, mix your cocoa powder and coconut water together to make the chocolate sauce.
  3. Using a spoon, slowly trace the rim of the glass with the chocolate sauce. Little streams will run down the inside of the glass. Don’t worry if it looks messy – once you add the milkshake it’ll look way more professional!
  4. Add your smoothie and top with some more cinnamon and cocoa powder.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!
