- 1 frozen ripe banana
- 3 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 soft medjool dates or a drizzle of honey
- ½ cup whole milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter (optional)
- pinch of salt
Put all the ingredients in a high-powered blender. Start on low, go to high, then blend on high power until very smooth, at least 1 minute, to make sure the dates are smooth.
Taste for sweetness, temperature, and texture, adding more sweetener or ice cubes or milk as needed.
