Vegan Chocolate Shake (NSNG)

Tonight I just couldn’t “shake” my craving for something sweet- in particular, chocolate ice cream.

No ice cream in the house.

My Vitamix blender and some healthy ingredients that I always have on hand.


3 frozen 1/2 bananas
1 pitted date
2 T cocoa powder
1 C non-dairy milk (use 3/4 C for a thicker shake)
1/2 t vanilla extract

Blend ingredients well in a high powered blender.  An ordinary blender won’t do!  Freeze for 10 minutes in a tall glass before serving.  Makes a single serving.

This is waaay better than what you get at McDonalds!! But for some reason, I had a memory of the old chocolate shakes I used to drink there…a very, very long time ago.

No…I’m not a deprived vegan at all!
