COCO VANILLA SHAKE with CHOCOLATE SAUCE


There are not actually words in the english dictionary that I know of to accurately describe how delicious this shake is. And I only speak english so I can't look to other languages here. Basically: you need it in your life immediately. Whether you're vegan or not, it's gonna blow your mind and take your taste buds to new heights. Please make it ASAP. If ya want more recipes like this one, I'd suggest checking out N'ice Cream, a beautiful vegan ice cream cookbook full of pretty pictures and inspiring ideas. It got me hooked on using full fat coconut milk (the stuff in the can) in my shakes and nice cream and I will never go back.

Oh wait I wanna add: I am a finalist and nominated for "Best in Health & Fitness" for BC Living's The Social List 2016! Plz vote for me if you want to. :) You can vote here.
