I've made one similar to this but for one serving:
1/2 can coconut milk (can use light, but it's better with full fat),
2 to 3 Tbsp carob powder (cocoa if you can have it),
5 drops liquid stevia,
pinch of salt,
1/2 cup water,
6 ice cubes.
Add a 1/6 of a banana if you want it to taste like a Chocolate Monkey.

You can also add a hand full of spinach (can't taste it),
protein powder (I use goat milk protein powder as well)%u2013it does taste a bit chalky, but that's the nature of protein powders,
or a scoop of Vega (http://shopca.myvega.com/vega/Vega-Nutritional-Products/vega-energizing-smoothie-natural-pouch).
MCT oil would be good to add too.

It's like a chocolate milkshake but no sugar, not a tonne of calories and full of healthy fats.
BTW, fat doesn't make you fat, sugar and carbs make you fat (the reason why diets like Atkins work).
