I wanted a quick easy snack when I got home from work this evening while I scrounged up something for dinner. I had thrown a couple of very ripe bananas in the freezer last night and decided to get creative.
I was quite pleased at how well it turned out! Next time I might use cashew milk instead, since it tastes creamier. The type of milk, amount of cocoa powder, peanut butter, banana, etc can all be tweaked to taste, but the recipe as follows tasted great to me!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shake (Vegan Style!)
1 frozen ripe banana (the more brown spots, the sweeter)
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
12 large ice cubes
2 T peanut butter
2 T honey (adjust to taste)
2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
1 t vanilla extract
Slice frozen banana into 1/4″ slices and remove peel (I found that the peel separates easily, but if you prefer, you can peel and slice the banana before freezing). Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
