Enjoy a little memory-laden comfort food sans processed junk with this chocolatey vegan milkshake from Claire Thomas of The Kitchy Kitchen. You don’t have to tell us to try a chocolate milkshake twice, but the fact that Claire pumped up the jam with maca and raw cacao means we’re making this simple recipe an afternoon staple all season long…

My love of chocolate is the least mysterious thing about me. I so obviously love it. And when I try to be good and cut down on the sweets a bit, well, I turn into a crazy person who becomes consumed by my monstrous need for chocolate.

So, what’s a girl to do? Well, I started playing around with chocolate in its raw form and found myself pleasantly surprised – all of the benefits and flavor, without any of the filler or refinement. Throw in some maca for an anti-inflammatory bump, sweeten with a little coconut nectar and you’re in business. Combine with frozen banana for an instant no-guilt vegan milkshake.

1 Tbsp coconut nectar
