almost raw vegan double chocolate brownie milkshake

February 24, 2013

this is what i now plan to do with my weekend.

first mix up some double chocolate brownie bites:

1/2 cup cashews, walnuts, or blend
fistful of walnuts
12 Medjool dates (1 cup packed & pitted)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
a few pinches of chocolate chips (opt.)
a few pinches of shredded coconut or coconut flour (opt.)

1. In a food processor, add the nuts (not the fistful of walnuts) and process until a fine crumb. Don’t over-process.

2. Add in dates and process until chunky. Add in the rest of the ingredients (except walnuts) and process until a dough forms. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Pulse in walnuts so they remain chunky. Add a bit more liquid sweetener if dough is too dry.

3. Form into balls and store in fridge or freezer.

then, throw some frozen bananas (or ice cream, or both) into the food processor with a scoop of peanut butter, a little bit of cocoa powder, and process until creamy.

throw in your brownie bites from above, and you’ve got a milkshake.
