Can I tell you a little secret? It was virtually dark outside when I took these photos. I was determined to satisfy a BIG chocolate craving and shoot some quick photos for this post. Both needs were met. Thankfully the pictures look sunny, bright and happy with the last glimmer of natural light. No artificial help at all.

We love our chocolate. Whether it is in cookies, cakes, parfaits, crepes, smoothies or shakes. We love it in bar form too. Hot cocoa is grand. Any which way, we fit it into our day. This shake will razzle dazzle you with a creamy blend of coconut milk, almond milk, Medjool dates and of course lots and lots of chocolate.

Let’s shake things up!

Take a look at these awesome pure chocolate sprinkles…These are not fakers.

They are the real deal, 100% chocolate and not waxy like the typical ones you find at the market. I learned about these when I took baking classes at my favorite OC bakery: Blackmarket Bakery.

I love blending a few dried Medjool dates into my shake too. As shared in my Creamy Roasted Carrot Coconut Shake recipe I prefer a little chew factor in my milkshakes.

The dates offer up sweet chewy bursts.

As do the little sprinkles and the spattering of slivered toasted almonds. Use any nuts and toppings you wish. My Skinny Chocolate Sauce would be yummy in this too. So would shaved chocolate curls. My biggest advice: don’t be shy with your chocolate. If you are Paleo and watching your sugars and carbs simply omit the sprinkles. If you are vegan you will want to find dairy free sprinkles.

Your taste buds will still be tickled by your awesome milk shake no matter what.
