Chocolate Banana Shake:
2 frozen bananas
3 cups non-dairy milk (We use almond! I thought that vanilla coconut milk would be fabulous here because it literally tastes like melted vanilla ice cream, but it wasn't ~so don't use it! )
2-3 Tbs cocoa powder
1 giant spoonful of raw almond butter (you can use pb if you like!)
2 small squares 72% (or more) chocolate bar!
small handful of unsulfured, unsweetened shredded coconut
spinach or other greens
*assemble ingredients in blender and blend until smooth and creamy!!! Serves 2! (Though I admittedly drank the entire pitcher when I was pregnant!)
Assemble all ingredients...
2 frozen bananas!
Not all chocolate is created equal! Make sure you read the ingredients to ensure your chocolate doesn't contain milkfat or other yucky ingredients. I like Endangered Species Chocolate and Newman's Own.
Blend it all up!
Enjoy! I use stainless steel straws whenever possible! I can't afford the glass ones as of yet, but the stainless allow me to have reusable straws which saves us money and it's one less plastic thing in my house and on my food! I'm good with that!
I normally add spirulina to this shake but I have already had some today in my regular green smoothie so I decided not to add any to this one! This is a great starter shake for green smoothies too! With the exception of color, spinach is undetectable! Check out this post from my favorite blogette for more recipes and ideas on smoothies! I personally like kale in my smoothies and juices but in smoothies I would use the curly variety and de-stem it first, especially if you are a beginner!
I hope you try this recipe! It is supremely delicious! Have a fantabulous day!!!
