Author Notes: You'll never believe that this shake is made with as few ingredients as it is, or that they're all so ridiculously wholesome. Feel free to experiment a little with the non-dairy milk base you use, as well as the nut butter (cashew, coconut, and sunflower seed butter will all work; so will peanut butter, though the taste will be strong). This is a good recipe to treat more as a template than a prescription.Gena Hamshaw

Makes 4 small or 2 large servings

  • 2 ripe medium or large bananas, peeled, chopped into pieces, and frozen

  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk (soy or hemp milk will work well, too)
  1. Blend all ingredients till smooth, adding a little more almond milk as needed. Serve.

This was awesome! Super rich and super sweet. Next time one or maybe no dates.

Love this recipe for a quick shake that's at least somewhat healthy! I don't like almond butter, but I've been adding grass fed whey protein. May try w/ PB. I love to add a little expresso powder as well!

Oh my... that espresso powder suggestion just put this recipe into the MUST-do pile instead of the WANT-to-do one! Delightful.

Now that I think of it, I have organic coffee-flavored whey powder as well... We're about to go full mocha.
