We did. Be rude not to really. After all it is Chocolate Milkshake Day!
Well, when we say chocolate milkshake, we of course mean one of our chocolate flavoured Purition wholefood shakes, which is at least healthy and wholesome being made from 100% natural ingredients.
That’s far more than can be said for the very first milkshakes which date back to 1885 and were originally served in bars as an alcoholic concoction of whisky, eggs and cream.
Thankfully, a few years later, someone had the common sense to replace the whisky with chocolate, vanilla or strawberry syrup to create a version of the milkshake which people have come to love today.
The invention of the electric blender in the early 20s further transformed the milkshake by creating a frothy, airy drink.
So, in celebration of the humble chocolate milkshake we thought we would share with you our favourite chocolate and raspberry Purition recipe – it will be something new to try today!
- 40g Chocolate Purition
- 250ml unsweetened almond milk
- A handful of fresh raspberries
- 1/4 banana (as raspberries can sometimes be a bit sharp)
Put all the ingredients into a blender and whizz together to form a delicious smoothie. Finish with a few fresh cranberries and dark chocolate shavings.
