This is a shake I drink a lot during the school year, when I am too busy and frazzled to find the time to cook. It is very filling and really helps me meet my protein needs for the day.
It isn't terribly sweet. If you are used to sweet shakes, I'd recommend adding a bit of sugar to the mix. The bananas add some natural sweetness.
As much as it had pained my jaw muscles to gnaw on the rock hard god-only-knows-how-old-it-was chocolate biscotti at Starbucks, I really missed the stuff after going vegan. After trying various recipes I finally came up with this. It tastes great, and doesn’t hurt my jaw as much as the biscotti from Starbucks did. The end result should be crispy and slightly dry, but not burnt or too hard to chew.
These cupcakes are very moist and taste like non-vegan cupcakes.
Note: Do not use this recipe as a cake recipe. For some reason the cakes I've made with this recipie have never really turned out right... but the cupcakes are superb!
