We saw NYC’s latest food craze Black Tap’s insane milkshakes, and wanted to put a slightly healthier spin on it by including some more nutrient dense ingredients. So we got busy in the kitchen and created the graze cocoa & speculoos sky high shake. Be warned - if you make this beast beauty, we recommend sharing with a friend.
Soak your chia seeds in 4 tbsp of water, preferably overnight but for at least 10 minutes.
Blend the coconut water, soaked chia seeds, coconut, turmeric, mango, cucumber, lemon and lime juice, and ice cubes together until smooth.
Pour the shake into a cup (bonus points for mason jars!) and let it sit in the freezer for 5-10 minutes (a firmer shake can hold even more tasty toppings).
While the shake is in the freezer, cut open the passion fruit and scoop out the insides.
After the shake is firm (but not frozen!) place a dollop of coconut yogurt on top, stick some sliced mango in and drizzle the mango and passion fruit coulis from the mango & coconut protein topper all over (try giving it 10 seconds in the microwave to make it easier to drizzle).
Top the shake with the granola from the mango & coconut protein topper. If it seems like it’s all going to roll off the top, place back into the freezer to firm up again.
Pour the passion fruit all over and add some more raw coconut flakes before easing a rigid plastic straw into your slightly frozen toppings.
Drink half now and save half for later or share your shake with a lucky friend!
Please note that this is still a dessert and it’s not something that our nutritionist Jess would recommend having too often, but life is about balance after all!
