Author: Minimalist Baker

Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe banana (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1-2 dates, pitted (if not sticky and moist, soak in hot water for 10 minutes, then drain)
  • 1 Tbsp cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups (240 – 360 ml) Almond Milk
  • Optional: 1/2 cup ice

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients except almond milk to the blender. Add in almond milk 1/2 cup at a time, adding only enough to allow the ingredients to blend together. Add more for a thinner shake and less for a thicker shake.
  • Taste and adjust flavors, adding more banana or dates for sweetness, cacao for chocolate flavor, and peanut butter for saltiness. Optional: Add a handful of ice for extra thickness.
  • Serves 1 generously. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep covered in the fridge for up to 24 hours. You could even freeze this into popsicles!
