This delicious lactose-free recipe is great if you’re trying to cut down on or eliminate dairy products from your diet.  But, really, any milk or milk-alternative (rice, coconut, hemp, or soy milk) should work.  A great almond milk recipe is right here.

3 cups almond milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. agave nectar
4 oz. dark chocolate bar – preferably at least 60% cacao

Place all ingredients in blender and run on high speed for 4 to 5 minutes (3 “Soup” cycles with a Blendtec), or until desired temperature.

  1. First of all, thank you for the invaluable information you provide. Your videos and articles helped me determine the blender that was best for my family, so again, thank you! I would love to try this recipe with Ibarra Mexican Chocolate. If you aren’t familiar with this product it comes in a round hard disk and is kind of gritty due to the granulated sugar in it. It’s ingredients read: sugar, cocoa liquor, vegetable fat, soy lecithin and cinnamon. My concern is that the disk may be too hard and damage the machine. I’m hoping you are familiar with this product and can advise me. Thanks again, you do an absolutely wonderful job!

      Grizel, thanks for the kind words about the content on the website. I am not familiar with Mexican chocolate However, assuming you are referring to a Blendtec or Vitamix, either one would easily handle this ingredient without risking the integrity of the motor or blades. There is nothing in that ingredient list that should concern you. Blend away!

      • Yes, it’s a Blendtec, thank you!
