Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie -Vegan, Dairy Free, Yummy
« on: January 28, 2016, 09:15:26 am »
I've made this smoothie a few times now and I'm really enjoying it. I posted it on my Facebook Page (here: https://www.facebook.com/What-Amber-Ate-1097437023601587/) and a couple of people said they enjoyed it so I thought I'd post it here too :)

It's dairy free, soy free, and vegan, however it's also easily adaptable to what you have on hand.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Serves: 1 or 2

1 frozen chopped banana* (ripe but not overripe)
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 tbsp peanut butter
2 tsp chia seeds
2 tsp flaxseed
2 medjool dates
1 tsp cocoa or cacao
300ml almond milk

Put all ingredients into the bowl (I have used used my large Nutribullet cup successfully too) and blend for 30-60 seconds. Enjoy!
*depending on the size of your banana you may need to increase or decrease the liquid to suit your tastes.

There's a picture on the fb page, sorry I haven't transferred the photo to my PC which is where I'm posting this from today :)

I made this yesterday when I was late going out. I had it about 10 and still wasn't hungry at 2. I left out the dates and cocoa and used low fat milk. It is very nice. I had to really slurp to get it to come through a normal straw. ( used more calories)
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Great tweaks Cookie!
Yes it is a thick smoothie. I was tempted to add more milk to make it thinner but I thought more than 300mL might be a bit much for most people! I also thought perhaps the answer may be to use only half a banana but then would it be quite as filling?!
Such difficult decisions to make so early in the morning!
