My chocolate banana milkshake is packed with protein and calcium from the almond butter and milk, while loaded with fiber and omega-3’s from the chia seeds and flaxseeds. The organic raw cacao powder, which is a superfood, contains a rich supply of antioxidants, fiber, magnesium and iron, all while having a rich, chocolaty taste! The bananas provide potassium while helping to normalize the movement through your digestive tract (your elimination, teehee!). So, this frozen treat is not only ridiculously yummy, but totally nutritious as well! If cow’s milk is present in your diet and you’d like to use it in this recipe, go for it (as long as it’s organic, raw is always best). You can also experiment with other types of dairy-free milks such as hemp milk, oat milk, rice milk, etc., and of course make your own!
1/2 frozen banana
1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp ground flaxseeds (optional)
1 tbsp chia seeds
few drops of vanilla extract
Directions: Place all ingredients into a blender, blend until smooth. Enjoy!!
