Chocolate-Date Smoothie

Servings: 1

On occasion, I get a craving for something sweet and chocolatey at breakfast. Sometimes that’s a chocolate croissant but more often than not, it’s a chocolate smoothie. The key to this smoothie is finding a chocolate almond milk that isn’t loaded with sugar. I buy local with a small amount of honey.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups frozen banana (about 1 large banana)
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chocolate almond milk
  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 Tbs. cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Preparation

Put the banana, oats, almond milk, dates, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt in a blender. Start on low speed, and then increase to high; blend until smooth. Add milk as needed to thin the smoothie enough to blend.
