I am a big "late night snack" kind of girl. As far as I'm concerned, there are four meals in a day and that last snacking session is usually my most favorite. I've been trying the last few years to find healthier options for my midnight snack, so we teamed up with Almond Breeze Almond Milk to make this healthier chocolate-covered cherry shake. It's a great option for me because it's non-dairy, no added sugar, and a delicious frozen treat all in one!
1/2-3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze Almond Milk
1 1/2 cups frozen pitted cherries
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 frozen ripe banana
Cut your ripe banana into smaller chunks and place in the freezer until frozen. Combine your frozen bananas, frozen cherries (which you can buy frozen, or pit and freeze your own), cocoa powder, and 1/2 cup of the unsweetened vanilla almond milk in a blender. Blend on a high speed until smooth, and add an additional 1/4 cup of almond milk if your shake is too thick to blend. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
You can also add some chocolate chips into your shake or top with whipped cream (regular or non-dairy options for either) for that extra vintage milkshake look. Don't you love drinking out of these old-fashioned soda fountain glasses? As always, I'm counting down the hours to my late night snack tonight. Think you'll add this shake to your late night rotation? xo. Laura
