A True Vegan Treat – Chocolate Banana Smoothie

Vegan Chocolate Banana SmoothieThese past couple days the cravings have gotten a bit crazy.  Not so much for meat or anything really off limits, but for something sweet.  Something containing chocolate.  Since I am still in my honeymoon phase with smoothies, and not in the mood to bake, making something truly rich and decadent in a cup sounded appealing.  Thus, the Chocolate Banana Smoothie was created.

 

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

 

3/4 C Almond Milk (or other milk substitute)

3 Bananas (cut into pieces)

3 Tbs. Unsweetened Cacao powder

1 tsp. Almond extract

 

Topping:  I used walnuts, but you can also use almonds.  You could even add them in, and blend them if you’d like, for a nutty chocolate flavor.

 

This is such a treat, and so filling because of the bananas.  I’m kind of obsessed at the moment (I’ve had one every day since I concocted it).  It makes a full size smoothie, but whenever my daughter sees this coming out of the kitchen, I usually only get to drink a third of it.
