Dairy Free Chocolate-Peanut Butter Milkshake

Yes!  The ultimate chocolate milkshake!  Now don't worry, if you're allergic to peanuts you can just use any nut butter, coconut butter or omit the peanut butter altogether.  The BEST part about this milkshake is, it's healthy!  You could have it for breakfast if you want!  (Don't mind if I do!) 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake!
3 cups vanilla almond milk (or other non-dairy milk of choice)
2 heaping cups frozen cherries
2 giant handfuls baby spinach
1/2 avocado
3-4 Tbs raw cacao powder (use cocoa powder if you don't have cacao but you may need more)
1 spoonful peanut butter, other nut butter or coconut butter (coconut butter would be amazing!)
*Optional:  handful of dairy free chocolate chips

*Just add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy!!!
Note:  If you do not have vanilla flavored milk, you may need to add a small amount of honey, agave nectar or maple syrup.

This shake is so simple and sooooooo delicious!  Have you ever had Texas Gold Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream?  Or maybe Homemade Peanut Butter N Chip?  This milkshake tastes like a milkshake we used to make with those flavors when I was a kid!  The ingredients are much better though! ;-)  It's truly amazing and you'd never know it contains spinach or avocado!  The avocado makes it especially creamy.  Without it, the shake will be somewhat watery due to the cherries.  My husband and kids love it!  My husband actually likes it better than our previous favorite, Chocolate Banana Smoothie!  If you are having this shake as a meal, it will serve 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children.  If this is dessert for you, you could probably get 6 servings out of it.  Let us know what you think!  Have a great day!
