Dark Chocolate Milkshake Recipe

Dark chocolate shakes taste like dessert for breakfast! Add Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder to your healthy morning smoothie recipe for an incredible burst of delicious chocolate flavor. This is the ultimate in that decadent – you won’t believe it’s so good for your taste buds! Dark chocolate cocoa powder is so healthy because it is high in polyphenols, which means it has antioxidant power. It is also rich in vitamins. This chocolate is a bit bitter, so the base of the shake should be vanilla flavored yogurt and vanilla almond milk with a little agave syrup or honey. Adjust the sweetener according to the desired level.

Chocolate comes from the cocoa bean. This bean contains antibacterial agents that fight cavities and help boost the immune system. These agents diminish once sugar and milk are added to the chocolate to create milk chocolate. Cocao also contains phenylethylamine which increases endorphins and gives you that happy feeling. Researchers have discovered that the mere smell of chocolate increases theta brain waves that induce relaxation. It is also said that people who eat dark chocolate live another year, perhaps due to the antioxidant effects or perhaps simply because they are happier!

Shakes are a great way to introduce extra protein and vitamins and minerals to your child’s breakfast or snack. Great additions to shakes are protein powder, bee pollen, lecithin granules, and brewer’s yeast. Be careful with brewer’s yeast because it has a bitter taste that children will taste!
