Chunky Monkey Chocolate Vegan Shake

I know how this sounds – ridiculously rich in chocolate and very unhealthy. Well, what if I told you that this was 100% healthy and 100% vegan!

IMG_8554Usually for lunch I make a simple bowl of chocolate banana ice cream, but today I was feeling different. Today I was feeling risky, and wanted to experiment with something new. So I whipped up the first ingredients that came to my head, hoping it would result in something sweet and tasty. And well, it did.

Ingredients
  1. 3 frozen bananas
  2. 6 pitted dates
  3. 1 and ½ tsp. natural peanut
  4. 2 tsp. cacao powder
  5. ½ cup chocolate or regular almond
Instructions
  1. Prior to making your smoothie, freeze 3 cut up bananas a minimum of 4-5 hours.
  2. When you’re ready to make your smoothie, put them in the blender.
  3. Add 1 and ½ tsp. of all natural peanut butter
  4. Add 6 pitted dates
  5. Add 2 tsp. of raw cacao powder
  6. Pour in ½ cups of chocolate almond milk
  7. Blend until smooth.
Notes
  1. For this smoothie, I’d advise using a strong blender or food processor, just because the dates are hard to blend and are tough on a small blender or magic bullet.
