Mendes brothers raw chocolate shake

Just saw this recipe on the Mendes brothers that they say they use when cutting weight for tournaments. It utilises the old trick of using non-sugar cacao powder so that you might think you're eating something unhealthy when in fact it is very good for you. It is also rich in antioxidants



Raw Chocolate Banana Shake


makes 2 shakes


2 cups frozen ripe bananas, chopped before freezing

2 heaping spoonfuls of raw cacao powder

2-3 Tbsp raw salted almond butter

1 1/2cups raw almond milk

Dash cinnamon

1/4 cup crushed ice
Blend. Serve!


note: if you don’t have “frozen” bananas, you can still make this shake — but add in another scoop of ice and expect to have more of a smoothie consistency, rather than a frozen shake


Here is another good recipe that puts in a little honey or syrup. I guess this is the beginner version
