I put a rounded tablespoon of cocoa powder, a rounded teaspoon of Truvia, and a dash of cinnamon in a small bowl and added a couple tablespoons of water and microwaved until warm to make it easier to combine the cocoa powder into the cold almond coconut milk (it is really hard getting dry cocoa powder to dissolve into cold liquid). After the water/cocoa/Truvia mixture is warmed for about 45 seconds are so, I stir it well to make a paste like consistency and gradually add a few tablespoons of the milk in to thin it. After it is well blended and smooth, I pour that slurry into a tall glass and then pour about 12 ounces of the chilled almond coconut milk into the glass and mix together well. You should taste it to see if you have enough sweetener. I don't like it real sweet, so you might need to add more sweetener to suit your own taste. Because the almond coconut milk is thicker than regular milk, it tastes very rich and creamy...almost sinful and it only has about 85 calories. These are milkshakes guaranteed to bring all the boys to the yard! ;-) How can you beat that? I snapped a pic for you to see below. Enjoy!
MMMMMM, that looks so delicious! I am going to have to try that soon.
Add a scoop of chocalate protein. Make it a muscle shake!!!694
That's actually a great idea! Do you use Jay Robb or a different type?
Hi GG I am doing go down 7 lbs in about 1 month I was wondering if you could recommend a good protein powder for breakfast I am getting tired of eggs and I don't really care for yougert see I can't even spell it thanks . Mary
Hi Mary -- the only protein powder I have bought or used is Jay Robb's (I have both their whey protein and their egg white protein). It is sweetened with stevia. LOL about the yogurt! :-)
My hubby and I are going to Florida for vacation and Disney world I am going to pick up some swerve they do not sell here in Wa. But the com. told me they have it there and the stores we will be around. It's so funny how you talk about Costco I have been working for them for 20 years have always loved it good company and cool things :)
Hi Mary -- I hope you find it in Florida while you are there. Wow...I can't believe you get to work there almost every day (Costco) -- you get to see EVERYTHING when it comes in! I have been a member for a very very VERY long time! We finally got the executive membership since we shop there so often -- and get a nice rebate each year. Have a wonderful vacation at Disney and keeping my fingers cross you can find some Swerve while you are down there and save on shipping it! :-)
