Healthy Chocolate Milkshake

Back in the day, when I first started learning about eating healthy for the sake of my daughter Katie’s health, I had omitted milkshakes. For years! Gahhh!

Then, one day it dawned on me how my kids were growing up not knowing what a milkshake was. What kind of mother was I?! 🙂 Milkshakes were a big part of my childhood and should be for everyone IMO. I soon realized how we could still have most of the delicious meals and treats we’d had before. I simply needed to swap out ingredients with healthier ones. Ingredients that didn’t upset Katie’s stomach, didn’t make us feel bloated, didn’t include dairy (since dairy is a culprit for inflammation/disease), and included WAY less added sugar (the #1 culprit for inflammation).

We’ve never looked back, nor made the traditional milkshake after we made this one. It is now a traditional, quick and easy dessert for our family that all of us love (and that’s hard to come by!). And one of my favorite parts, is that my husband makes this for our family. SO TASTY!

If you love chocolate, peanut butter, and bananas, you’re going to LOVE this!!! <3 Share it with a friend whose in need of a healthy milkshake in her life.

      Hi Jillene! Yes, always have those bananas unpeeled for smoothies…and anytime you’re eating a banana for that matter. 😛 I will clarify that above. Thanks for asking! 🙂
