Chocolate Milkshake

Chocolate milkshake with website

What better way to get something healthy and yummy into your little ones than a healthy spin on an old classic.

I made these chocolate milkshakes last night for bedtime drinks with just a little less cacao and honey than usual (since I didn’t need my girls to have an evening pick-me-up right on bedtime).  You could skip the banana too if you wanted – it just makes it that little bit creamier.


2 cups raw milk or fresh nut milk/coconut milk
2 Tablespoons cacao powder
2 Tablespoons honey
1 small to medium banana


Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  Serve immediately.

Serves 2-4 depending on your serving size.  The girls had a bottle each, and I had a medium glass full.

You might also try substituting the banana if you’d prefer not to combine bananas with other foods – try half an avocado to give a creamier texture, plus a tablespoon of chia seeds to thicken.

{GAPS Notes: cacao is not normally recommended on the GAPS Diet but some people find they can have it after they’ve been on the Diet for a while}.
