Chocolate Banana “Malted” Milkshake

Chocolate Banana “Malted” Milkshake

Yield: 16 oz portion

This thick and creamy milkshake is actually a healthy smoothie in disguise, but your tastebuds (and kids) would never know. Its rich, almost fudge-like chocolate flavor makes this blend feel like dessert you can feel great about enjoying for breakfast. Add an extra boost via the optional ingredients, and this smoothie very quickly becomes an immune-supporting powerhouse! Reishi Mushrooms are renowned for their ability to help regulate and boost immune function, and though slightly bitter, they’re a good match for the earthy flavor of the cacao in this smoothie, which makes it the perfect place to sneak these goodies in.


1 frozen banana, sliced
2 Tbs. cocoa powder
1 Tbs. cacao nibs
1 cup ice
1 ¼ cup nut milk
1 Tbs. honey
2 Tbs. nut butter*
2 scoops Chocolate Double Bonded Protein Powder
2 scoops Capra Mineral Whey (optional)
1 tsp Reishi Mushroom Powder (optional)
2 scoops CapraColostrum (optional)

*Sunflower seed butter is a great option for those with nut allergies, it’s made of ground sunflower seeds and has a natural sweetness.

Preparation: Place all ingredients into blender and process until smooth. This smoothie is extra thick, so you may need to add a bit more nut milk to get it to blend completely.
