Chocolate is one of my weaknesses. I love chocolate in all sorts of forms, especially in a nice cold or hot beverage. If you are a fan of the Silk products, you are in for a sweet treat!
On the Silk Facebook page, you can visit their Silkology Winter Tab to find recipes for 16 different YUMMY beverages that include the Silk products.
Silkology – Fresh, innovative cocktails and beverages combining the art of mixology with the delicious flavors of Silk.® A perfect solution for holiday entertaining.
From the Silkology page, I made the Double Chocolate Smoothie which was pretty good and the recipe is below:
Double Chocolate Smoothie Recipe
- 1 cup Silk Chocolate soymilk or Silk Pure Almond Dark Chocolate
- 1 banana peeled, sliced and frozen
- 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 tsp honey optional
Freeze banana for at least an hour or overnight. Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and thick. Serve with a bendy straw.
Note: For a super-thick, milkshake-style smoothie, add two frozen bananas instead of one.
Since my banana was small I added a couple ice cubes to my blender to make my smoothie thicker and added a sprinkle of cinnamon on the top! 🙂
If you like to come up with your own recipes and you like the Silk products, I recommend submitting a recipe to Silk’s Holiday Recipe Contest. You don’t have to make a beverage either, you can get creative and make any recipe that uses the soy milk, almond milk or coconut milk as a substitute for milk or dairy products.
