Chunky Monkey Smoothie

This is a guest post by Rebecca of Vegan Verite. Check out her blog for delicious vegan recipes!

This is more of a milkshake than a smoothie, but I’m always disappointed when I’m looking for a vegan milkshake recipe and end up seeing “banana” in the ingredient list. In order to not disappoint you (if you’re as neurotic as I am), let’s just call this a “dessert smoothie.” If you like the combination of almond butter, bananas and chocolate, you will love this smoothie – it’s rich, creamy, and just the right amount of sweetness (and it’s vegan, unlike Ben and Jerry’s “Chunky Monkey” ice cream). Enjoy it as a special breakfast treat or even as a healthy dessert.


·         ¾ cup nondairy milk

·         1 frozen banana

·         2 tbsp. cocoa powder

·         2 tbsp. almond butter

·         1 tbsp. agave nectar

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Enjoy (and don’t make fun of the nerdy photo of me with the smoothie, if you can help it)!

Yield: 1 serving
