I fell in love with this skinny chocolate shake.  It made me totally change my perspective on something that I adore having as an indulgence.

Ingredients

  • Frozen Bananas: These chilly delights are the secret to that thick, creamy texture without the cream!
  • Coconut Milk: It’s like your milkshake went on a tropical vacation, bringing back that rich, velvety flow without the dairy woes.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: This is where the magic happens, turning your shake into a chocolatey wonderland—deep, dark, and full of antioxidants!
  • Vanilla Extract: Just a splash of vanilla to tie it all together with that sweet, aromatic caress.

How to Make Skinny Chocolate Milkshakes

Add all ingredients into your heavy duty blender and blend until smooth.

Garnish with chocolate sauce or whipped cream (try coconut whipped cream) and a cherry and serve.

Milkshake Tips

  1. Banana: The riper the bananas before you freeze them, the sweeter your shake. Make sure they’ve got a few brown spots for that natural sweetness kick.
  2. Chill: Pop your coconut milk in the fridge a few hours before blending. A colder base means a thicker, more milkshake-like consistency without needing ice that could water it down.
  3. Cocoa: Don’t skimp on the cocoa—go for a high-quality unsweetened cocoa powder. It gives you that robust chocolate flavor without added sugars, making it a legit healthy treat.

  1. This looks NO WHERE NEAR healthy…but I am soooo not complaining! I want this shake for breakfast! Pinned!

  2. I used to live on milk and milkshakes as a kid! Something about chocolate milkshake just sounds fattening and I’m afraid its been ages since I had one! Time to change that. I think I’m going to make this today!

  3. This looks amazing! Funny enough, I made 3-ingredient “smoothie” the other day (frozen banana, cocoa, skim milk) and I kept thinking it was like a milkshake. It sounds wonderful with coconut milk here!!

  4. I do the same thing with the chocolate almond milk and frozen bananas! So good…and better for you than those ice cream versions!

    1. Sounds fabulous. Thank you! One question, do you mean coconut milk in a carton or the kind in a can?
