Forget pumpkin!

Chocolate and Peanut Butter, that IS dessert. 

Are these flavors on your mind?

Here is a way to get decadent dessert flavors into a healthy smoothie that you can have anytime.

NOTE: If you’re allergic to nuts this is not your smoothie!  Let me know if you need an option.

Organic ingredients always, when available.

1 cup nut mylk*

1 teaspoon no alcohol vanilla extract, or a piece of a real vanilla bean

2 tbsp raw cacao powder

Blend those 3 ingredients first until liquefied, then add-

2 frozen bananas

4-8 medjool dates, pitted, OR maple syrup to taste (start with 1 tbsp)

¼ cup peanut butter (salted crunchy is my choice)

Blend and serve in a frosty glass

Your result should be a very thick shake!

 

OPTIONS:

Icy option, add a handful of ice and pulse

*you can use almond or coconut milk from a carton, but even better is to make your own cashew milk (the only catch is you have to make it the day before)

Cashew Mylk for this smoothie

Just remember it’s 1:1

So rinse cashews then add I cup raw organic cashews to 1 cup of filtered water, and store in refrigerator overnight

The next day drain, rinse and blend

Keep 1 cup of this for your smoothie mylk (if you were only using for mylk you could strain it, but for the smoothie thicker is better anyway!)
