3 simple ingredients are all you need to create this creamy, chocolate drink, that happens to be vegan as well. A healthy, yet indulgent treat to satisfy your chocolate craving! 🍫

Ingredients you'll need:

    1. Cacao Powder
      • Ahhh...our classic friend, cacao. Dates and chocolate are just a match made in heaven, and, if you haven't already had this combo, this is the perfect recipe to add a ton in!
    1. Joolies Date Syrup 
    1. Dairy-Free Milk
      • We went with a yummy coconut milk for this one, but use whatever floats your boat! There's oat, almond, macadamia, or other blends that work just the same.

Optional add-ins:

    1. Cinnamon
      • For a little extra something, add a dash or two of cinnamon. This is especially wonderful during the holiday times when all you're wanting to consume is pumpkin spice bagels, festive lattes, apple pies, you name it!
    1. Protein or Collagen
      • Since this recipe blends everything together, you can honestly add any powdered boosters to this recipe! Protein, collagen, antioxidant blends, or whatever works for you and your needs 👍
