    I thought your oatmeal tab was my favorite, but this one is definitely taking the #1 spot!! 🙂 This is random, too, but I have been meaning to tell you this: The Thin Mint photo of the milkshake being poured into the glass? GORGEOUS!! Seriously, I’m in love with that photo, it is so pretty!! 🙂 Nice!!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Aw thanks! LOL foodgawker.com didn’t like it, but it’s still one of my favorite photos too… basically because I like photos that show movement, but I always have a hard time getting it right. Someday, I wanna master the “poured maple syrup” look on top of pancakes. Those photos are always so pretty! I swear, I often don’t even notice the actual food anymore when looking at photos… I’m too preoccupied with the art of it!

    So I am a woman in love with your milkshakes–I tried a variation of the cake batter one this morning but tinkered with it a bit to up the protein. In search of something with a enough protein to hold me over for hours on end, I threw in between 4 and 6 ounces of silken tofu and made sure to blend it just a bit first to make sure it wasn’t chunky. It added some thickness to the shake (which is like a guilty please that you shouldn’t feel guilty about) and the other flavors basically covered the distinct tofu flavor. I found that it lasted me a good 5 hours, which was a big plus. I don’t know if it still counts a raw, but it sure was tasty!!

        Couldn’t you make a single serve chocolate cupcake on the bitter side, overcook it a little so it’s dry, and then crumble it into a shake? I dunno, perhaps there’s a flaw in my brilliant plan <..>

          • Nathalie says

            Welllll…. I can’t be sure but I’m fairly certain Jell-o pudding mix (at least the fat free, sugar free instant kind we keep around the house, anyway) is at least vegetarian, if not vegan. I tried making your cream cheese mousse with the cheesecake flavor. It was awesome. Seems to stand to reason that if you throw some silken tofu and a serving of the vanilla pudding mix into the shake, it’d turn out pretty darn creamy.

            I should probably test that theory though. Oh the difficult life I lead, haha.

            I know this post was from a while ago, and you may have thought about this since then, but . . . what about coconut butter as the cream filling? Maybe sweetened with just a little stevia?

    Hello :3 I found your website yesterday, and I love it!
    I am dying to try your milkshakes, but I wonder, can you use frozen pear instead of a frozen banana, as I am a little bit more in love with pear?
    I must add, your recipes are also so fun to read, and you are very cute 😀

    Hi Katie.I am in love with your site. I ran across it the other day and I must say your food is amazing! I am not vegetarian, but I am often mistaken for one. I am going to a University my last two years of college, and am not allowed any kitchen equipment except a fridge and microwave (no cooking allowed). So in short, your single servings and the ability to make foods so tasty and without equipment is a lifesaver.

    Can’t wait for your red velvet shake! I heard a way to make healthy red velvet cake is to include beets. Not sure how it would taste in a shake but just a thought 🙂

    Can’t wait to try these out!

    PS if you can find a way to make a super healthy vegan lemon meringue pie that would be so very special 🙂

    Cheers

    You should add a recipe for an espresso shake: frozen banana, instant espresso powder, vanilla, and a little almond (or other dairy-free) milk. It’s just like the coffee ice-cream, but milkshake form. (-:

    Oh my! I just made this and I am dying right now it’s so good!! I didn’t have any cashew butter so I just threw a small handful of cashews into the blender instead :). I know it’s called cake batter but it tastes EXACTLY like my Mom’s old Banana Pudding recipe that I grew up with!! This is genius!! Thank you, Katie! I haven’t been able to touch my Mom’s banana pudding since I learned of my gastrointestinal disease and had to cut out all refined sugars about 6 years ago! Oh the nostalgic goodness!! 🙂 Thank you, thank you, Katie!

    These look great, except that I can’t have fruit (only berries). Do you think there is anything I could substitute for the banana?

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      A good sub would be Thai coconut meat (the white triangle coconuts, not the brown stringy ones). Or you can play around with mango… or maybe even cherries in some of the recipes. Experiment! And let me know how your experiments go :).

    I can’t believe I am just now finding your blog. These recipes are great! I have been blending and cooking in similar ways, but yours actually look good too!

    I really love the steamed carrot idea and will be doing this soon. Have you ever used winter or summer squash to blend with frozen fruit? I blend something almost every night using a rotation of baked butternut, acorn, spaghetti, or summer squash with some stevia sweetened vanilla protein powder, frozen fruit, almond milk, and liquid stevia. Just pour in a cup, pop in the freezer, make and eat a salad, and then get the mix from the freezer.

    Another thing you might like….peanut flour (http://www.byrdmill.com/gourmet_peanut_flour). I love mixing this with regular pb and a little water so you get more PB taste and nutrition with less fat and whatnot. Also good to bake with.
    Anyway, sorry for the long post; I love your blog and now a subscriber. Check mine out if you get a chance, I just posted 3 of your recipes as my favorites!

      I love blending squash to make pudding, but haven’t tried it with fruit. Sounds like a good idea for sure!
      And I know a lot of people love that pb2 stuff (which is essentially peanut flour, I guess). Maybe I should put it on my grocery list!

    I was thinking that since Oreo’s are vegan, you should make an oreo milkshake! I wouldn’t even care if it was super healthy, it just sounds scrumptious and I want to know the best way to make one lol 🙂

    To all the people who want a pumpkin pie shake- I made one! So one morning I made the cake batter milk shake, and it just didn’t taste like cake batter to me! So I turned it into a pumpkin one. I added 2 heaping spoonfulls of pumpkin, a few shakes of pumpkin pie spice, a packet of true via (or stevia), some crushed graham cracker bits, and vwalla- (I have no idea how to spell that) but it tasted really really good!

    What sort of blender do you use? I’m in the market for a new one and I’m trying to get a feel for some of the best ones out there. I make smoothies a few times a week and then various other desserts that require blending

  33. Kathy says

    Hi Katie I love all your recipes, especially the shakes are looking so tempting. I was wondering if you know how I could subsitute the Banana in the shakes since I really don’t like them..

    • Elizabeth says

      Kathy,

      This is a question that comes up frequently, and Katie is starting to address it. In her Sugar Cookie Shake post, she offers this:

      “For the banana: You can sub an equal amount of Thai coconut meat (the triangle coconuts, which you can find at Whole Foods or in an Asian market). Or you can sub 1/2 cup of your favorite ice cream, such as So Delicious brand. Or perhaps you can try frozen mango, for a tropical twist.

      All other substitutions: I can’t tell you if something will “work” since I’ve only tried the recipe as written. But feel free to experiment!”

      Also, in one of her no-bake recipes, she suggests using a greener banana. If there are others sweeteners in the recipe, that may be an option. Enjoy your experimentation!

    I am having wisdom teeth removal pretty soon….all four at once! It’s going to be especially difficult one (I have a small mouth)…but this tab will be a life saver! I just have to avoid anything that involves chewing 😀
