Banana Chocolate Milkshake

banana chocolate milkshake indulge 01 Banana Chocolate Milkshake

Organic Banana Chocolate Milkshake (raw)

You must think I’m a chocolate freak with all these chocolate recipes. And right you are. This drink
though is so easy and quick to make. No ice cream making required. The frozen bananas nicely replace
the need for ice cream and are much lower in fat. I like to always keep a few bananas in the freezer,
ready for a quick shake or quick skinny dip in a chocolate bath. Remember to peel your bananas first
before freezing them. I know, obvious, but you’d be surprised… The easiest way to handle them is to
brake them into bite size pieces when they are soft, before freezing them, and add the pieces to a zip
lock bag. Throw the bag in your freezer and forget about them. That is until you start hankering for one
of these. The nice thing about this is that it is actually healthy. (Shhhh….) Yes it’s true though. It’s full of
wonderful things like medium chain fatty acids, electrolytes, anti-oxidants, magnesium, copper, iron, B
vitamins, Potassium, Tryptophan, and on and on. Add the lecithin and vitamin E powder and it will really
be a power breakfast. Full of high quality calories and energy, it’ll get you going with a huge smile…

Cacao Crêpes and Sweet Mint Custard with black cacao sauce (raw, vegan) Recipe by GreenChef Matthew Kenney

Recipe from the Entertaining In The Raw Recipe Book by Matthew Kenney

When I was first experimenting with raw cacao, it was challenging to use—it was not yet available in powder form, and the taste was unusual, so I was a bit unsure of it—but the dried beans actually reacted well to certain recipes, especially those where a soft texture is needed. This dish is pure classic in flavor.

Serves 4–6 People

For the Crêpes:

 

1 quart flax meal

1 quart apples, peeled, cored, and chopped

2 cups chopped coconut meat

2 cups cocoa powder

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

2 quarts water

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1/4 cup raw agave

2 1/4 teaspoons salt

These dumplings are perhaps the most stunning dish I have ever served—they are ultra simple and elegant, like a black-tie affair, but the concept is undeniably charming and sophisticated. Fortunately, they taste even better than they look and have became an instant classic of mine.

2 cups young coconut meat

1/3 cup black sesame tahini

1/4 teaspoon salt

Frozen Chocolate Pudding with cinnamon-glazed plums, chocolate basil wafers, and vanilla bean–plum syrup (raw, vegan) Recipe by GreenChef Matthew Kenney

Recipe from the Entertaining In The Raw Recipe Book by Matthew Kenney

I dare anyone not to like chocolate and plums. Is that even possible? It seems that everyone loves chocolate these days. I like to combine it with seasonal fruits, particularly stone fruits, which provide a good balance with their tartness and also a slightly nontraditional pairing.

Serves 4 to 6 people

For the Pudding:

 

2 cups cashews, soaked 1–2 hours

2 cups coconut meat

1 cup water

1 1/4 cups raw agave

1 cup coconut oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 1/4 cups cacao powder

2 tablespoons raw carob powder

Hallacas Vegetarianas: Vegetable Tamales with Tomato-Chile Sauce (raw, vegan) Recipe by GreenChef Matthew Kenney

Recipe from the Entertaining In The Raw Recipe Book by Matthew Kenney

These tiny tamales, wrapped in a strand of corn dyed with beet juice, are so charming that they would be delicious filled with air—yet, the filling has a very silky body and deep flavor that is surprising, given the lack of heavy fats or dairy.

Serves 4 to 6 people

For the Filling:

 

1 quart corn, divided

1 1/4 cups minced tomatoes

1 1/2 cups minced red bell pepper

6 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes, soaked
