Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 1 large or 2 small servings
  • ½ ounce (about 2 tablespoons) raw unsalted almonds
  • 1 large ripe banana (or 1½ medium bananas), broken into chunks and frozen
  • ¾ to 1¼ cups dairy-free chocolate almond milk beverage (I use unsweetened)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons cocoa powder, to taste
  • Sweetener, to taste
  1. Put the almonds in you spice grinder and grind them into a meal or powder.
  2. Add the frozen banana, ¾ cup almond milk, ground nuts, cinnamon, and salt to your blender and blend until smooth. Add more milk beverage as needed to get things moving and for your desired consistency.
  3. Blend in the cocoa powder and sweetener (if using) to taste.
Spicier Option: Add a generous pinch of ground ginger, ground nutmeg, or ground allspice for a flavorful kick. If you want a little more heat, you can add wee little a pinch of ground chipotle or cayenne pepper.
