When it comes to snacks, I love a good chocolate shake. But you know what’s even better? A chocolate shake that’s made with ingredients you can feel good about! That’s why I created this recipe; I wanted a chocolatey shake loaded with high quality foods that my family and I would love and enjoy on a regular basis.
These shakes are sweet tooth satisfying yet super filling, all thanks to one high-fiber superfood ingredient – black beans! But don’t worry, just so long as you use “no-salt-added” beans, you won’t even know they’re there. The added bonus? They only take a few minutes to make!
To make these shakes, simply blend all of the ingredients listed above, pour into glasses, and then serve with colorful reusable straws! (That is, if you happen to have some colorful reusable straws lying around.)
Tip: Be kind to your blender (and lower your frustration level!) by adding the ice to your blender at the appropriate time. You want to make sure that it ends up being the ingredient furthest away from the blades once you begin blending. Your blender will have a much easier time getting the job done this way!
I hope you love this snack shake as much as we do!
