Mulberry Acai Milkshake
Tips for this creamy dairy-free milkshake:
- You can’t add too many mulberries, the more you use, the more of that sweet somewhat malty flavor.
- Although the cacao powder is not necessary, it does complement the mulberries and acai very nicely. However, it is still delicious without, or add extra for a real chocolatey flavor!
- Create the consistency of your liking with the amount of liquid. Start with enough liquidvin the blender to get things moving and then stream in additional while blending until you reach your desired thickness! Add less to create more of a soft-serve ice cream, or more for a smoothie-like consistency.
- Ripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
- Dried mulberries
- Frozen 100% pure acai
- Raw cacao powder, optional
- Coconut milk, or other nut milk
- Toppings: mulberries, raw cacao nibs, shredded coconut, etc.
Place frozen banana, dried mulberries, and acai in a high-powered blender. You'll need about 1 banana per serving, so begin with 2 bananas-worth of frozen slices.
Add enough mulberries to be anywhere from 1/4 - 1/2 the amount of banana used, depending on preference, or even more if desired.
To this, add the frozen acai, about 1/2 packet per serving, and a few spoonfuls of cacao powder if using. Lastly, add about equal amounts ice to frozen banana used and enough coconut milk to come halfway up the ingredients.
Blend the ingredients on high for about 30 seconds, adding additional coconut milk if needed to help with blending until you reach desired consistency.
Pour in glasses, add toppings of choice, and serve with a straw and/or spoon.
I use homemade coconut milk, but any store-bought/homemade coconut or other nut milk will do.

Oh this creamy thick milkshake looks incredible! It’s such an amazing idea to blend the mulberries in to it! I’m sure it tastes just as good as it looks 🙂
It does taste pretty amazing with the acai especially. This was my first recipe made with processing the mulberries in some way. I typically leave whole, but I love them like this!
