Stevia Week Recipe #4: Black & White Milkshake

Alright, this is the last of the Stevia Week recipes! Mayhaps you’re glad to see them go? I’m not! It was fun playing with stevia. I’m never one to forego sweets, so hopefully the experimentation will be ongoing.

In cased you missed them, here are the other three recipes:

And last, but not least, I give you the Black & White Milkshake!

Not exactly the kind you’d find in the malt shops of days gone by, but I’d like to think this version is updated and healthified for the better. Or, at the very least, safe for daily consumption. :)

Black & White Milkshake (Vegan)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup vanilla non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup water (or more milk)
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 drops NuNaturals cocoa extract liquid stevia
  • 3 drops NuNaturals liquid vanilla stevia
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum

Directions: throw it all in the blender!

Ok, I know my photography is lacking this time, but it’s hard to make a blender look good, especially with the shake still in it! Yeah, I could’ve poured it into a pretty glass, but don’t forget that I am a real human being who doesn’t like to wash more dishes (by hand!) than she has to. What’s the point of a personal blender if you don’t drink the shake straight from the blender canister anyway?

And yes, that is my new Tribest Personal Blender, thank you for asking. :) More on that next week!

So if you’d like to start playing with your very own stash of stevia, you have but mere hours left to enter my NuNaturals stevia giveaway. I’m choosing the four winners tomorrow—readysetgo!

Its hard to get a good picture of a shake! The ingredients sound yummy though. I bet it'd be fabulous with some unsweetened chocolate almond milk. Hope you have a lovely weekend

I am a fan of all milkshakes - especially those of the chocolate variety :-)
