Milkshake Magic with Akta-Vite

Hi everyone,

I was super excited yesterday morning when these awesome Akta-Vite products arrived in the post! As I recently mentioned, I have now partnered with Akta-Vite to help create and develop some yummy recipes of chocolate-y goodness. As you can see below, their new packaging features the surfing koala (could you get any more Australian than that?) and Akta-Vite is working with the Australian Koala Foundation to Save the Koalas. (Five cents from every can goes to this worthy cause, so please help out if you can!)


 Akta-Vite is drinking chocolate made and sold in Australia


It can also be used as a delicious ingredient for desserts


One of the great things about living in the USA is that mail arrives on a Saturday, and this is what I unpacked on Saturday morning! The not-so-great thing is that they don’t sell Akta-Vite here… yet! 😉


Thanks Akta-Vite for my tasty loot! I am super excited to get started creating recipes with your drinking chocolate (and also to use the shakers for some milkshakes…)

Speaking of milkshakes…

Today’s Recipe: Milkshake Magic

If you are in the mood for a milkshake then read on…

Here is a very simple yet delicious milkshake recipe:


1 cup of milk (use any milk of your choice – soy, almond, non fat, low fat, whole milk, etc)

2 large scoops of ice-cream (I used mint choc chip and vanilla, one scoop of each)

3 tablespoons of Akta-Vite 


Mix all ingredients in a food processor or blender, sprinkle with Akta-Vite, and serve!

Note: If you are in the mood for a *thickshake* then increase the amount of ice-cream to 4 scoops 🙂


 Simple! Milk, ice-cream, and Akta-Vite equals a deliciously creamy milkshake or thickshake

Coming up on the blog: more tasty treats using Akta-Vite, including Luscious Lamingtons, Marvelous Mousse, and Bridget’s Brownies.


See you soon!
