Smart Sweet: Chocolate Almond Butter Milkshake
My favorite combination when it comes to something sweet and something salty is chocolate and peanut butter, or any kind of nut butter! You’ve seen me share my love for it in our Mini Peanut Butter Cups, Chocolate Almond Butter Fudge, Almond Butter Kiss Cookies and now a Chocolate Almond Butter Milkshake! It’s decadent, so easy to make, and the best part is that it tastes just like the chocolate and peanut butter smoothies I used to order when I would go out for ice cream with my Dad. And better yet, the cacao powder adds heaps of antioxidants and the almond butter provides healthy protein, making this perfect for after a workout on a warm summer day, or of course as a dessert or meal replacement on any day!
1 cup homemade almond milk (or store bought)
1 frozen banana
1 heaping Tbsp. cacao powder
1 – 2 Tbsp. almond butter
1 date, pitted
Dash of Himalayan Sea Salt
3 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients on high until smooth, about 45 – 60 seconds.
