Healthy Milkshake Recipe

Is there anything better than a guilt-free delicious shake? I think not 🙂  I’ve got a great recipe and new cookbook to share with you today that I think you are going to love!

Chia, Dark Chocolate and Mint Shake

I am thrilled to share a new cookbook called The Chia Cookbook by Janie Hoffman. She is the founder and CEO of Mamma Chia, an organic line of chia-based foods and beverages. She has been featured in the New York Times, O magazine, Everyday with Rachel Ray, Details, Vogue, Real Simple, Prevention, Glamour, and the Today show.

As you read through the recipes in this book, you’ll see that it’s possible to incorporate chia into everything, and I mean everything—breakfast foods, soups, salads, cocktails, main dishes, desserts.

Chia, Dark Chocolate and Mint Shake

My husband and I have been enjoying chia for the last couple years so I was anxious to try out Janie’s new book! When we lived in Newport Beach, we had a Whole Foods Market right by our house and we would pick up Mama Chia drinks every time we would grocery shop. They are my favorite! I was immediately drawn to this Chia, Dark Chocolate and Mint Shake in the Chia Cookbook. All of my favorite flavors! It could not be more simple to prepare which is always a plus.

Chia is a powerful little seed with incredible health benefits. In this mouthwatering recipe collection, you’ll learn the secrets of incorporating this ancient superfood into modern meals from breakfast to dinner and happy hour to dessert.

Hope you enjoy this fun and healthy shake!

    Regarding the Chia, chocolate, and Mint shake: Is the frozen yogurt, the “ice cream” type, or do you just freeze a cup of vanilla yogurt like you get in the yogurt department?

    We love chia smoothies!! And although I add cocoa powder all the time I never add peppermint extract – that needs to change!!
