Frozen Vegan Chocolate Snack Shakes

When it comes to snacks, I love a good chocolate shake. But you know what's even better? A chocolate shake that's made with ingredients you can feel good about! These shakes are sweet tooth satisfying yet super filling, all thanks to one high-fiber superfood ingredient - black beans!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups of Unsweetened Almond Milk or other non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup No-salt-added canned Black Beans drained and rinsed
  • 3 Tb. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 4 Dates pitted
  • 2-3 Bananas
  • 2 Big Handfuls of Ice Cubes about 12 ice cubes
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract optional

Instructions

  • Simply blend all of the ingredients listed above and pour into glasses.

Notes

  • Be kind to your blender (and lower your frustration level!) by adding the ice to your blender at the appropriate time. You want to make sure that it ends up being the ingredient furthest away from the blades once you begin blending. Your blender will have a much easier time getting the job done this way!
  • If you feel like mixing it up, here are some other ingredients to consider adding to this shake:
    • A Tablespoon or two of Peanut Butter
    • A handful of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
    • A tsp. or so of Instant Coffee to transform them into MOCHAS! (Something Jeff and I have started doing A LOT more after becoming parents of twins!)
