1 c. cold water (like really cold from the fridge water)
1/2 c. ice
1/3 c. raw almonds
6-8 pitted dates (about 1/2 c.)
- Put above ingredients in blender
- Blend 90 seconds or until smooth
3 whole frozen bananas (6 halves cut into 1 inch pieces- should raise the almond date milk from about 2 cups to 4 cups)
1/4 t. coconut extract (Don't leave this out! It's what makes the shake not taste like a banana/chocolate shake)
1/2 t. vanilla extract
8 t. cocoa powder
- Blend until smooth, scraping down sides of blender as necessary.
- Pour a nice tall glass and enjoy! We like to eat it with a spoon.
- Serves 2-4
