Chocolate Mylk Shake

This recipe was created by raw chef Ani Phyo. It is simple, creamy, and delicious! Here is what Ani has to say about the mylk shake: "This is my recipe for the raw food vegan Chocolate Mylk Shake I made for Andrew Zimmern on the LA episode of Bizarre Foods. Almonds are blended to make my dairy-free mylk. It’s sweetened with dates, spiced with vanilla bean and raw cacao powder, then kissed with coconut oil for extra richness. Holy cow, you won’t believe this is dairy-free, cruelty-free, sugar-free, guilt-free, vegan, vegetarian, raw food, good for you and the planet. Live green."
