Sometimes I just really need a milkshake. Actually, I need one every day. I've been making these for breakfast daily for at least two weeks now and have yet to tire of them. They're really simple and quick and taste like heaven. Whether you need a milkshake for some 420 cravings or just for a delicious snack, this recipe is definitely worth making. It's so smooth and creamy and is perfect for those times when you miss going to the Burger King drive-through and getting some disgusting thing reminiscent of a milkshake (
not that I ever miss that or anything). You can also add in some ground flaxseeds or chia seeds or hemp seeds or any sort of healthy addition that makes you feel happy, but it won't necessarily be as creamy; some nut butter could be good too, but I haven't tried that yet!
Chocolate Banana Milkshake
- 1 medium banana
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- sweetener of choice (2 dates, 1 TBL syrup, 1 TBL sugar, or 1 packet of stevia powder)
- 1/2 cup nondairy milk
- 1 to 2 cups ice, depending on how thick you want it (I usually use as much as possible because I like thick smoothies!)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, optional (you can also try adding coffee extract ((to taste)) for a mocha flavor!)
Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender for several minutes until completely combined and no ice chunks remain.
Makes 1 big serving or two smaller servings (the yield amount really depends on how much ice you add though)
