Jungle Protein Milkshake

For a while I’ve seen people adding vegetables  to their smoothies and I swore that I would never do such a thing – vegetables are for plates and not for drinks and I was happy with that, until this morning. I don’t know what happened, but I had an urge to make a milkshake and something inside of me was telling me to add spinach. Now, don’t worry. I’m not that cray cray, that I’m now hearing voices. No. It was more of a craving deep from within my body and I couldn’t ignore it. I’ve been having spinach with everything lately and I go through phases like this every so often then get sick of it, so I decided to give it a whirl why I was going through my phase and oh boy, did I enjoy this jungle protein smoothie. And before you all wince at the thought, no, I couldn’t taste the spinach.



Although, you can see bits of green that my blender failed to blend, but that wasn’t a problem for me, because I enjoyed it nonetheless and it was the thickest, richest, chocolatiest, milkshake I’ve ever had. Plus, it was also packed with nutrition, antioxidants and turmeric to boost the immune system. What I loved most was that I finally got to use the vegan protein powder and enjoy it thoroughly, because all the other flavours masqueraded the pea protein – it’s a miracle.



I would just like to add that this milkshake is quite thick and I did eat mine with a spoon, but you can add in more milk if you prefer to drink it with a straw


  • 2 Bananas
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Spinach Leaves
  • 1 tbsp Peanut Flour
  • 1 tbsp Cacao Powder
  • 1 tbsp Date Jam
  • 1 Scoop Vegan Mocha Protein Powder
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut Cream for topping (optional)


This is as simple as adding all of the ingredients (minus the coconut cream) to a high speed blender and blending until everything is completely smooth.


Now, pour the milkshake into a glass, top with some coconut whipped cream, put your feet up and enjoy.
