Bourbon, Vanilla and Chocolate Milkshakes and Simple Chocolate Syrup (NOT!)- Baked Sunday Mornings

Okay, Okay....I cheated A LOT with this.  Sorry Baked Peeps but I just had to take advantage of this recipe!  As some of you might know, I have been on a weight loss journey this year.  So far I have lost nearly 60 pounds!  I have been juicing and eating clean since January.  I do indulge in an occasional treat (I am only human).  The above is pretty much a big treat to me!  We were suppose to take vanilla ice cream, whole milk, ice cubes, bourbon and a homemade chocolate syrup and make a chocolate shake.  As much as I wanted to do that....I took a different route.  My ice cream was frozen bananas and avocado.  My whole milk was almond milk.  The bourbon...well, I left that out and the chocolate syrup???  I made a vegan chocolate syrup from coconut milk, cocoa powder, Stevia and vanilla extract. 

This made one decadent, smooth, creamy, chocolaty smoothie-shake or whatever you want to call it!  I loved it!  And will add this in as a treat smoothie every now and then.

Here is the vegan chocolate sauce recipe I used....

Vegan Hot Fudge and Chocolate Sauce
source My Little Celebration
1 c full-fat coconut milk
1/3 – 1/2 c cocoa powder
5 T sugar or other sweetener (or to taste)
1/2 t vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Method | Heat the coconut milk and cocoa powder in a saucepan or a double boiler over medium heat to combine. Whisk in sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour into heat-safe container – like a pyrex bowl – to cool. Once it’s cooled, transfer into a glass jar and store in the fridge for up to a month. 


  1. Your versions sounds delicious. I love frozen bananas, they are so versatile and tasty.

  2. Congratulations, Chelly! How awesome that you found a way to still enjoy this! Yours looks much thicker & creamier than mine!

  3. Congrats on the weight loss, that's fabulous! And I love the changes you made to the milkshake to make it work for you. It sounds delicious.
