Chocolate Banana SunButter Breakfast Shake (Gluten, dairy, egg, soy, peanut & tree nut free; top 8 free; vegan)
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Shake
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 servings
  • 2 large overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen*
  • ¾ cup original or vanilla rice milk (or more to thin as desired)
  • ¾ cup ice
  • ¼ cup creamy SunButter
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender, with the ice cubes on top, and process until well blended. Serve immediately. Garnish with banana slices, and additional dairy-free chocolate chips if desired.
I've done this last minute, without the bananas being frozen and it's still great--just not as thick.
Also, feel free to add in ¼-1/2 cups gluten-free oatmeal (depending on how thick you want it) to add in some whole grains into the smoothie. My son can't do them, but I've done it and it makes it thicker and delicious.
You can also add in 1 Tablespoon of ground flax seed for a great source of Omega 3s.
Lastly, be sure to use very ripe bananas, since you aren't using sweeteners to make sure it's sweet enough.
