Strawberry-Chocolate "Milk"Shake

LLStrawberryChocolateShake
It took quite some time to tweak this recipe so that it was super creamy, smooth, and scrumptious! So, without further ado I introduce to you one of the most delicious non-milk, “milk”shakes you will ever drink. Seriously, it is that good.

Strawberry-Chocolate “Milk”Shake

Ingredients
1 Cup Cold Water
1/2 Cup Blanched Almond Flour
10 Pitted Dates
1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 Banana
1 (10-Ounce) Package Frozen Whole Organic Strawberries
1/4-1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cashew Milk
Instructions
Place water, flour, dates, cocoa powder, vanilla, and banana in a powerful blender (we used a VitaMix). Start blending slow and work your way up to full power, run on full power for about 30 seconds or until well blended and smooth.
Remove and add strawberries and milk. We added the cashew milk once we began blending the strawberries and just pour in a touch to get it blending and moving.
That’s it! Pour and enjoy!
Notes: We used pitted deglet noor dates. The banana was medium-large in length and we used half of this but have used a whole before without much difference. The strawberries must be frozen, if you have fresh you can freeze about 23-25 whole strawberries to use for this recipe. We only have cashew milk on hand but you could use whatever you prefer, it is just used to “soften” the blend. The cocoa powder we used was Frontier brand dutch processed cocoa powder.
We’ve made this recipe multiple times with these exact ingredients. If you would like to use a substitution, we have no idea how it would turn out but please feel free to share your successes with substitutions.
You could definitely stir in a toothpick dipped in Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil to give this a minty kick!

Essentially Green Smoothie

Does this look absolutely refreshing or what? This blend is perfect for the use of essential oils. Why? Because essential oils bind to fat so the fat from the avocado binds with the essential oils to give you a more even disbursement of the oils throughout your smoothie!
Ready for the recipe? Here it is . . .

Essentially Green Smoothie

1/2 Avocado
1 drop Young Living Lemon EO
1 drop Young Living Lime EO
1 drop Young Living Ocotea EO (optional)
6 frozen Pineapple cubes
1/2 Banana
6 frozen Mango cubes
Handful Kale
Be sure all produce and fruit is washed, peeled, pitted, and cubed (when necessary).
Place ingredients in a blender in this order:
(1) 1/2 Avocado with lemon and lime essential oils, blend until well mixed
(2) add remaining ingredients and blend until desired consistency — add ice cubes if you need it a bit more “slushy”
Pour in glass and enjoy
