And, before you head off to make your own Mexican Chocolate Banana Almond Breakfast Shake, take a look at this fun infographic and get inspired to eat more almonds!

Tips for making your Mexican Chocolate Banana Shake

  1. Frozen bananas are key to giving this a “milkshake” like consistency.
  2. I have made this with both almond milk, as well as unsweetened soy milk, but feel free to experiment with different plant based milks.
  3. Want a protein boost? Add your favorite protein powder, especially if using a low protein “milk” such as almond or rice milk.
  4. Boost your gut health by adding one of my favorite prebiotic/probiotic supplements: Regular Girl (use code “EASTEWART10” for 10% off ) or Uplift Foods.

Note: I was not compensated to write this post, but I love all nuts, including almonds, and I recommend Nuts.com’s certified gluten-free products, including their almonds to my celiac and gluten-sensitive clients and readers, so I am happy to tell you a little bit about them today! 

First the recipe, which pairs together 4 ingredients: This luscious homemade Mexican Chocolate Almond Butter. Along with frozen banana, milk {dairy or non-dairy} of choice, and an extra tablespoon of pure unsweetened cocoa powder. Just because. This is a chocolate shake after all!

  1. this is like my dream shake! oh and love me some almonds!

  2. Viviane Bauquet Farre says:

    What a killer shake, EA! The combo of flavors sounds so delicious, so refreshing…

  3. Sylvie | Gourmande in the Kitchen says:

    My husband would adore this combination, must have him try it!

  4. Melanie @ Nutritious Eats says:

    Nuts are the best! and we order from nuts.com too!

  5. Smoothies made with frozen banana + whatever nut or seed butter I’ve made recently is a common occurrence when my husband’s home. When he’s not, my evening treat is often a hot chocolate, frequently of the Mexican spiced persuasion. That you’ve combined the two here makes me quite excited for the post-supper sip! My craving will *indeed* be satisfied. Thanks for the killer idea, and the helpful infographic as well!

  6. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s to honor my cravings. Things turn very ugly when I ignore them (you’ll find me in the corner somewhere stuffing myself with ice cream). These photos are absolutely stunning (not surprised) and I feel like the almonds on that spoon will taste even better (Love the colors and the design!). I’ve been on the hunt for quick and easy GF treats for my clients so this is perfect! Pinned 😉

  7. Katie Cavuto says:

    Yumm!! This looks TOO good! I can’t wait to give it a try 🙂

  8. I am SO going to make this ASAP!

    Cheers, Lisa

  9. kellie@foodtoglow says:

    You. Are. Killing. Me. Sounds SO good, and I love that it is super healthy too. As if it would be anything else. 😉

  10. Marisa | Marisa Moore Nutrition says:

    Love this combination, EA. It vaguely reminds me of horchata with a lot more umph!

  11. Jessica @ Nutritioulicious says:

    I love snacking on almonds and occasionally I have almond butter (especially on Passover when peanut butter is not allowed!). This shake looks delish, even though no bananas for me 😉

  12. Deanna Segrave-Daly says:

    Oh boy do I need to make this pronto! As for almonds, I pretty much just eat as is – so easy to snack on 🙂

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      As is, is just perfect too! Hope you enjoy the shake as much as I do Deanna! 🙂
