HALLOWEEN: Chocolate Graveyard Shake

This nifty idea comes Lauren Toyota of Hot For Food, who created it as a nutritious vegan smoothie recipe.

We adapted the concept as a chocolate-banana shake (peanut butter optional) with cow’s milk. You can:

  • Use your milk of choice: almond milk, dairy milk, soy milk), or a blend.
  • Add almond butter or peanut butter for more flavor and nutrition—or leave it out.
  • Make an adult version with chocolate liqueur or spirit of choice (pun intended).
  • Use a ripe, overripe or frozen banana. (With a frozen banana, omit the ice cubes. We stick overripe bananas in the freezer for baking or drinks.)
     
    RECIPE: CHOCOLATE-BANANA MILKSHAKE

    Ingredients Per Serving

  • 2 tablespoons frozen raspberries or other “bloody” berry
  • ¼ teaspoon water
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon almond or peanut butter
  • 4 ice cubes (if not using frozen banana)
  • ¾ cup regular or chocolate milk
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon malted milk—or—
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon chocolate liqueur
  • Tombstone garnish: 1 Pepperidge Farm Milano* cookie, or other oval or rectangular cookie
  • 1 Wilton Food Writer marker or decorating gel
  •  
    Preparation

    1. WRITE “R.I.P.” on the tombstone cookie with the marker or gel.

    2. BLEND the frozen berries and water into a chunky purée. Set aside and rinse out the blender.

    3. ADD the remaining ingredients to the blender and process to desired consistency. Pour the shake into a serving glass. Drip the “blood” berry purée on the surface, insert the tombstone and serve.

    *We like Milano cookies because their surface is smooth, making them easy to write on. In the photo, the cookie was also brushed with diluted black food coloring to create a gray background color.
