Banana Chocolate Chip Shake
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 1
  • 1 medium to large ripe frozen banana, broken into chunks (1 to 1-1/2 cups of frozen chunks)
  • ½ to ¾ cup unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage
  • Sweetener of choice, optional*
  • ⅓ ounce probiotic, dairy-free dark chocolate
  1. Add the banana and milk alternative (I start with ½ cup and add more as needed) to your blender and puree until smooth. You want the mixture to be thick, like a shake. This isn’t a problem for high powered blenders, but if you have a wimpy one like mine, it helps to pulse the mixture first, to break up the bananas, before trying to puree.
  2. If desired, blend in sweetener to taste.
  3. Now add the chocolate and pulse chop or lightly blend to break it up. I like it with flecks of chocolate throughout and some small chunks. Eat with a spoon or thin it to a drinkable texture.
*The banana sweetens this drink nicely on its own, but if your banana is under ripe, I recommend using a regular vanilla milk alternative (which is usually lightly sweetened – as opposed to the unsweetened version), adding a few drops of stevia (use a light hand! This stuff can overpower), or sweetening with something that dissolves well in cold liquids. Maple syrup, agave, and finely granulated sugars work well, but honey and larger crystals really need heat to dissolve.
