FROZEN BANANA-PEANUT BUTTER-DARK CHOCOLATE
Adapted from The Kitchn
DELICIOUS AND HEALTHY TO ENJOY THIS
MILKSHAKE smoothie as a BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE. The Kitchn calls this beverage a milkshake, but a milkshake sounds very sweet and fattening. With the ingredients I am using, I'll call this a smoothie. Smoothie is normally made with healthier ingredients. First time I made this, I forgot to add the vanilla extract and this smoothie still tasted delicious without it. I added a tablespoon of crushed ice so I can achieve a thicker "smoothie" consistency. NO SWEETENER ADDED!
1/2 cup carton UNSWEETENED coconut milk or any type of milk of choice (113g)
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter or almond butter (14g)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons crushed ice (7g to 10g)
2 tablespoons chopped Trader Joe's 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate or your choice (11g)
Combine all ingredients, except the dark chocolate, into the container of a blender. Blend until smooth. Use the blender tamper to push and stir if you need to.
Add the dark chocolate and blend just until finely chopped and incorporated. Ready to serve.
