Healthy Chocolate Banana Shake

Healthy Chocolate Banana Shake (Dairy-Free & No Added Sugar!) abeautifulmess.com       I am a big fan of fruit and chocolate together. Like, a giant fan of it. If fruit and chocolate had a mom, I would be a bigger fan of them than their mom. However, I've changed my diet over the last year to avoid as much refined sugar and dairy as possible, so I've had to get a little creative when picking out my late-night sweet treats. At the moment, I am obsessed with this dairy-free and no-added-sugar banana chocolate shake. I've had it at least five times a week for the past month, and it doesn't look like I'll let up any time soon. Curious how to make one? Healthy Chocolate Banana Shake (Dairy-Free & No Added Sugar!) abeautifulmess.comHealthy Chocolate Banana Shake, serves one

1 frozen, ripe banana
1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cacao powder
1 tablespoon almond butter (crunchy or smooth)
1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk Healthy Chocolate Banana Shake (Dairy-Free & No Added Sugar!) abeautifulmess.com Healthy Chocolate Banana Shake (Dairy-Free & No Added Sugar!) abeautifulmess.com  Healthy Chocolate Banana Shake (Dairy-Free & No Added Sugar!) abeautifulmess.com   The sweetness in this shake is coming from the banana, so the riper your banana is, the sweeter your shake will be. To freeze your banana, peel the banana and cut it into inch-wide slices and put into a plastic freezer bag. (Cutting it into slices first will help the frozen banana blend easier.) Place the bag into the freezer for several hours until the banana slices are fully frozen. Add the frozen banana to the rest of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If your blender needs more liquid to handle the frozen banana, you can add more of the almond milk or a dash of water.

I like to keep the same freezer bag for my frozen bananas and keep adding new slices when it gets low. Which is all the time. Because it's so good. Think you'll give it a try? xo. Laura
