This has become our go-to after school snack. A sweet treat full of nourishing ingredients to power the kids until dinnertime.
(make about 4 cups)
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2-4 pitted Medjool dates (to sweeten)
- 2-4 heaping Tablespoons nut butter (I tend to use almond)
- 3-4 cups almond milk (or other non-dairy or dairy milk, of choice; our favorite is Calafia coconut-almond milk)
- 1-2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (or you could use a scoop of chocolate protein powder, if you have one you like)
Combine everything in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Store any leftovers in the fridge and simply shake or whisk before serving if the smoothie separates.
