Smoothies tend to be loaded with fruit and vegetables, so I’m not sure if smoothie is the right title for this blended beverage. Milkshake isn’t quite right either because there isn’t any ice cream. It’s smooth and creamy, savory and just sweet enough to take the edge off.
Chocolate Banana Smoothie (from The Paleo Chocolate Lover’s Cookbook)
1 can of full-fat coconut milk (refrigerated, but if it’s room temp that’s fine, you might need another ice cube)
1 banana (I used one I’d put into my freezer but room temp is fine too)
4-5 ice cubes (if you have strong coffee leftover, freeze them into ice cubes and use those, delish! But not kid-friendly.)
2 tablespoons nut butter (I have used cashew, almond, and sunbutter and all are good-use creamy)
1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder (depending on how chocolately you like it)
1 tablespoon honey (or more if you need it sweeter)
pinch of salt
Place everything in your rocket-powdered blender and blend until completely smooth. Serves 1 or 2 people, depending on how well you share your chocolate. This is pretty filling.
