Our Raw-Vegan Breakfast Milkshake is our go-to summer breakfast. It’s so pretty, easy to make, filling and oh so delicious! It’s also healthy enough to call it a breakfast milkshake. Are you ready?
Combine this delicious milkshake with your favourite pancakes for the perfect weekend breakfast!

This is our all-time favourite breakfast. Made with plant milk (we use soy or oat milk, but feel free to use any other kind), frozen bananas, raw cacao powder, raw nut butter (preferably cashew butter) and avocado.
Ripe bananas provide us with a naturally sweet flavour without having to add any kind of sweeteners.
We use frozen bananas to get a quick creamy effect. You could use non-frozen ones. The flavour will be the same, just the consistency will slightly change. A high-speed blender is needed in order to handle the blending of frozen bananas. If you do not have one, then you should use non-frozen bananas.
If you have never frozen bananas before, here is a quick guide on how to do so:
Wait a few days until the bananas are ripe enough (the riper they are, the sweeter the milkshake will become).
- Peel the bananas.
- Cut them in small pieces.
- Place them into a freezer-safe container or bag.
- Place the container in the freezer overnight.
Adding avocado to this milkshake is highly recommended, but not necessary. Sometimes, depending on where you live, it’s such a struggle to find good avocados or even find them at all. We have lived in Singapore for two years and always used avocados there. Currently, living in Sweden, depending on the season, it is basically impossible to find decent ones, so sometimes we cannot add them to the blend. Using avocado will give a creamier result, but not adding will not impact the flavour.
You can adjust the amount of cacao and raw and unprocessed nut butter to your own preference. We fancy a stronger nutty flavour more than a chocolaty one. If you do not, just add more cacao and less nut butter.
Sometimes, we have run out of cashew nut butter, and adding raw cashews to the blend worked just fine.
Thawed raspberries/blueberries is the secret to making this milkshake such a pretty one! We always use frozen raspberries, thaw them in the microwave and then proceed to add them.
Very recently, we found out that raw nuts and nut butters have about 30 times less glycotoxins than roasted ones. Michael Greger says “Because of AGEs I no longer toast my nuts or buy roasted nut butters. Such a bummer, because they taste so much better. But, as Dr. McDougall likes to say, nothing tastes as good as healthy feels”. This is very important information because glycotoxins shorten lifespan! So, now we try to eat all our nuts and nut butters raw. Find more info here.
Eating nuts has been associated with plenty of health benefits — from increased cognitive function to protection from Alzheimer’s, as well as keeping your heart healthy. Now, scientists have added more benefits to that list: People who eat a lot of nuts might have a lower risk of mortality and developing chronic diseases, including respiratory disease, neurodegenerative disease, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, according to a new study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
It’s been known for some time that nuts — which are rich in essential nutrients like fibre, protein, minerals, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, and antioxidants — have plenty of health benefits. One 2010 study notes that “by virtue of their unique composition, nuts are likely to beneficially impact health outcomes. Epidemiologic studies have associated nut consumption with a reduced incidence of coronary heart disease and gallstones in both genders and diabetes in women,” and “studies consistently show that nut intake has a cholesterol-lowering effect.” (extracted from www.medicaldaily.com)
