Author: Minimalist Baker
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
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!
