RECIPE : healthiest choco milkshake | + giveaway winners announced

comments 10


congratulations to the new vegan cookbook giveaway winners !
i really wish i could send a book to everyone who entered the contest, but i don’t think my publisher would like that one bit.
i feel so lucky to have such beautiful followers / subscribers – it’s you guys who make this the best job in the world.

anyway about the recipe ! david used to make this for me for breakfast everyday our final year in london, and i had sort of forgot about it. it’s also a great late night treat when that sweet craving sets in. crap-free and with an added nutrient punch from the turmeric and black pepper ( remember : eat turmeric everyday ) !

to me, this taste like a chocolate milkshake should taste. so sweet and creamy, there’s nothing boring or depriving about it – even though it’s the healthiest ever and so ridiculously simple.


the healthiest choko milkshake
3 tbsp cacao (unsweetened cocoa powder, or raw cacao)
a pinch of turmeric
a pinch of blackpepper
50 ml / 0.2 cups oats
300 ml / 1.25 cups water
3 bananas, sliced and frozen for at least 6 hours
cinnamon (optional)

– mix the oats in a blender or food processor until the consistency of flour.
– add the cacao, spices, and a little bit of the water and blend until completely smooth. add the rest of the water and blend again.
– add the banana slices, break apart if they have formed larger chunks. mix and serve with a dash of cinnamon !


i love recipes that work both as breakfast, a light lunch, an afternoon snack, or a late night treat.
you guys seem to like these crazy simple sweets / snack recipes too right ? let me know what you want to see more of !

and congratulations again to the giveaway winners, i really hope you’ll like the book !

love // jenny

    Hi Jenny! I am Sarah from Brazil and I found about your blog and YouTube channel just yesterday and I already love it! I always had this idea that vegan food is so hard to make, so seeing this recipe really impressed me and made me wanna try to embrace some vegan habits! Thanks for the beautiful and affordable recipe!

  6. In trying this recipe I swapped the water for almond milk, and doubled the oats. Perfect for a late night snack (2:30 A.M. New Orleans, LA. USA). Thanks Jenny:)

  7. Yummy smoothie! Whenever I want something sweet but healthy, this is my go-to! Literally takes 3 minutes to make.
