smoothie: chocolate-banana


This has become our go-to after school snack. A sweet treat full of nourishing ingredients to power the kids until dinnertime.

Chocolate-Banana Shake
(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.
