I have been experimenting with Paleo recipes a lot lately. Which is how all of this came about. I was trying to make a Paleo chocolate milkshake… and ended up with a Paleo frozen hot chocolate. This was a pleasant surprise because I love frozen hot chocolate! It reminds me of the first one that I had at the famous Serendipity restaurant in NYC. If you haven’t been and are headed to NYC, you need to go! Theres always a long line, but its worth the wait. This recipe is wonderful because you not only get to eat a frozen hot chocolate from the comfort of your own home, but you also get to eat one that is Paleo! Double Score!
I honestly don’t know why I was surprised when the ingredients that I was putting into the blender did not result in a milkshake… I was using a hot chocolate recipe as inspiration after all. I followed the recipe for a perfect cup of hot chocolate on the Hershey’s cocoa powder box and replaced everything non-paleo with a paleo alternative. The result was delicious, satisfying, and fun! (minus the brain freeze haha) If you need something sweet and are trying to follow a Paleo diet, this is definitely worth a try Did I mention that it tastes like frozen hot chocolate?!
Now back to the Paleo milkshake drawing board…
- 2 tbs honey
- 2 tbs natural unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1¼ cup coconut milk
- ¼ tsp vanilla
- about 1 cup of ice– add more if you want it to have more of a “slushy” consistency
- Put all the ingredients (minus the ice) in a blender and mix until everything seems well blended. Then add the ice and blend again until the ice is crushed.
