Hi! I'm Dr. Tina Marcantel and I have a great recipe for you today for a banana chocolate shake.
Let's talk about the ingredients first:
*3/4 cups cold water
*6 oz. of frozen bananas (that usually equals 1 1/2 to 2 bananas)
*one tbsp of unsweetened cocoa
*a few drops of stevia
Blend and enjoy!
Okay, here's how simple it is: we put our 3/4 cup of cold water in here, we put our 6 oz of frozen bananas. I'm going to put a few drops of stevia. You can use plain stevia or chocolate--either one of them is going to be really good. Put that in there with one tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa. Let's blend that up, quick and easy.
And here we go. Look at that consistency. Perfect! Delicious.
Now, what I do sometimes is, if I want a little bit of coconut, I will add one tablespoon of coconut oil to the shake after I blend it. It is delicious.
So, the great thing about this shake is it has antioxidant properties with the cocoa, it has wonderful omega-3 fatty acids with the coconut oil, and bananas are full of potassium. And, boy, it is delicious. Cheers!
