Double thick chocolate shake

Double Thick Chocolate Shake


4-Ingredient double thick chocolate shake. Vegan and gluten-free this smooth, creamy, dreamy, chocolate shake is super healthy and fabulous for you.


  • 10.5 oz (300g) Frozen Banana
  • 2 oz (40g) Dates (approx 5 small dates)
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) Almond Milk
  • 4 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • For Decoration/Toppings (optional):
  • Sprinkle of cacao nibs
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Date Syrup or Chocolate Syrup (for the glass)


  1. Add almond milk to the blender jug along with cocoa powder. Blend
  2. Add dates to the blender jug and blend again.
  3. Lastly add the frozen banana and using your blender’s stick attachment (if you have one) push the frozen banana down onto the blades and blend until very thick and smooth.
  4. If you don’t have a stick attachment (like for a Vitamix) then pulse blend until all the pieces of frozen banana have been broken down and then blend on full until smooth.
  5. If you don’t have a powerful blender, then add the frozen bananas in stages, blending as you go. You may need to add a little more almond milk in this case, but will still get a thick shake.
  6. Decorate two small serving glasses with some date syrup or vegan chocolate syrup and scoop the blended shake into the glasses evenly.
  7. Top with some cacao nibs and a maraschino cherry.


*Whenever you have extra ripe bananas on hand, peel them, break into quarters and freeze in a freezer bag.

*Bananas need to freeze at least overnight to get to the right consistency for this shake.

*Nutritional information is based on 1 shake (of 2) without toppings.
