Chocolate-Covered Cherry Shake (Non-Dairy!)

Yum! Chocolate Covered Cherry Shake (Non-Dairy!) 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!

Yum! Chocolate Covered Cherry Shake (Non-Dairy!)Chocolate-Covered Cherry Shake (Non-Dairy!), serves 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

Yum! Chocolate Covered Cherry Shake (Non-Dairy!) 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

  • Wow, Really nice.. I will surely try.
    Try Almond Fresh Milk by Life Health Foods. Visit: http://www.lhf.co.in/

  • How I love your recipes & especially love a clever shake hack, aka evening snack! Those cherries are so whimsical & yes, I want the whole bowl!

  • This looks soooooo delicious! I wish we had fresh cherries where I live!

  • Oohhh, banana peanut butter chocolate?! a That sounds delicious! I bet it’d be good with almond butter. What do you put in it?

  • Hi Tommie!
    You can make coconut whipped cream pretty easily (just search it online) or some health food stores have dairy free alternatives. Coconut whipped cream is pretty good though, try it!

    Laura 🙂

  • I would just leave the banana out if that’s a problem (I make it a lot that way too) 🙂

    Laura

  • Hi Mana!
    I would definitely give it a try! You can try rice milk too if that works for you 🙂

    Laura

  • Yum! I love playing around with non-sweetened treats at night. Usually I just make cherry “ice cream” with frozen cherries and a banana, but I love the idea of a milkshake!

  • Sorry if I’m missing something but the picture shows some whipped cream looking stuff on top – where is this part from and is it dairy free? Thanks!

  • Amazing! I want to drink this right now. Shame we are just out of the cherry season here in Oz.

  • Chocolate AND cherries?! Sooo yummy!! I love that this treat is dairy-free, but my diet doesn’t allow bananas either…any suggestions for a suitable substitute?!

  • Yeahhhh so I’m going to have this for dinner! YUM!

  • I absolutely need to make this shake! Do you think it would turn out well with Soy milk because I’m allergic to Almonds?

  • Me and my husband love late night snacking..this non dairy option looks yum, and easy to make… gotta try..

    xo

  • Hmm, good question! I would actually just leave it out, I don’t always use one when I make it 🙂

    You could also try avocado to add a creaminess to it and see how you feel about that!

  • I’m moving into my new apartment this week and I promised friends that I would have them over so I can “break it in” and this is probably going to be one of my first treats I make along with some waffles. Non-dairy is my favorite. haha.

  • Any suggestions regarding what could be used to replace the banana? I’m allergic but I have yet to find a good substitute. Thanks!

  • Oh my gourd. My mouth is watering. I like that you used almond milk because that’s what I’d use anyway. Cherry chocolate is a divine combination. Must make this! :] // http://www.itscarmen.com ☼

  • Oh my gosh this looks amazing! Total flashback to spending time in retro fifties diners….but they were usually dairy-ful. 😉
