This Healthy Chocolate Shake recipe tastes like a decadent chocolate milkshake, but it is made entirely from nutritious ingredients. It is super quick, easy to make, and refined sugar-free. Made with cocoa powder, honey, chia seeds, milk, banana, ice, and vanilla.
If you are a chocolate-lover like me, you are going to simply adore this indulgent chocolate smoothie. It gets its thick and creamy texture from frozen banana, which becomes almost like ice cream when it is blended. This recipe makes a great breakfast or post-workout snack because it is quick, easy to make, and healthy.
This nourishing shake is infused with chia seeds, which are a great thickening agent because they expand when wet. In addition, chia seeds increase the nutritional value of the smoothie by adding fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids and protein. This shake is refined sugar-free as it is naturally sweetened with honey, which has a wealth of healing properties and is also a natural energy booster.
How to Make a Healthy Chocolate Shake
Simply add all of the ingredients – milk, banana, ice, honey, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and chia seeds – to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
Pro Tip: When adding your ingredients to your blender, always add the liquid (in this case, the milk) first near the blades. Doing this will help your blender to run a bit more smoothly whenever you are making a shake.

For this Healthy Chocolate Shake recipe, I recommend:
Using a Vitamix Blender, because it is the BEST blender for making smoothies! A Vitamix is a high-powered blender that breaks up frozen fruit, vegetables, ice and any other dense ingredients into oblivion – with no chunks and easy clean-up.
The Vitamix blender is amazingly versatile, so you can also use it to make soups, sauces and homemade nut butters. You can check one out on Amazon here.
