Chocolate-Coconut “Milk” Shake

Almonds, coconut, and chocolate…what does that bring to mind? Well, if you’re on Kaufmann 1, hopefully something healthy and delicious not filled with sugar and artificial flavors. Almonds and coconut have a natural affinity for one another, and when you add in chocolate, well, it just takes it to a whole different level of decadence. (And if you don’t care for chocolate, the almond-coconut milk is delicious on its own.) 

1 1/4 cup of almond meal (can be made from blanched or unblanched almonds) OR
1/ 1/2 cups whole almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened dried coconut
5 cups water
1-teaspoon vanilla
5 drops liquid stevia or 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup (for Kaufmann 2)

2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
4-5 drops of liquid stevia, or more to taste.

In a high-speed blender, place almonds or almond meal, coconut, and water. Blend at high speed for 1 minute. Add vanilla and sweetener and blend to combine. 

If desired, strain through a fine mesh sieve. (This will make for a more homogenous texture but is not necessary.)

For one serving, place one cup of the almond-coconut milk back into the blender. Add cocoa, stevia, and some crushed ice (about 1/2 cup) if desired. Blend to combine and serve immediately.
