Recipe Notes

Please note that in my version I use my Paleo Brownies recipe which are not vegan so if you want a vegan shake, use a vegan brownie recipe.
Also please check labels of ice cream and chocolate to ensure they are what you are looking for (i.e dairy free, gluten free, vegan, paleo, etc).
If you are not worried about being strict with these and are just looking for a healthier dessert or just want to eat something insanely delicious in its own right, like me, then ignore those last couple of paragraphs and buy what ever ice cream and chocolate you like.
