This tastes just like a real chocolate ice cream shake and can be made soy and dairy free! Substitute almond butter or cashew butter for peanut butter; omit agave syrup if banana is extremely ripe.

I used one packet Truvia instead of the agave syrup only because I don't have that on hand. I also used a frozen banana instead of using ice in this "shake". Dude. This was SO good. I definitely wanted more peanut butter flavor I'll double it next time. And there will be a next time. Read More

I wouldn't call this a milkshake but it was a nice healthy substitute. I also added a little more agave which made it taste less bland to me. Read More

I made this today with lite coconut milk and almond butter. My banana was very ripe yet we (my husband and I) felt that the bitterness of the unsweetened chocolate was too strong and we had to add more agave to sweeten it up. We hardly ever add any kind of sweeteners to smoothies and shakes because we like to get all the sweetness from the fruit(s) we use. Because of the unsweetened chocolate we had to up the sweetener quite a bit. Otherwise it was good. Read More

This kind of reminded me of a peanut butter chocolate icy. I followed the recipe the best I could but made a couple of changes. I used a frozen banana because it was what I had. I try to watch cholesterol so I did 2 Tblsp. of coconut cream and the rest in sweetended vanilla soy milk. For a thicker drink use a frozen banana and not so much liquid. I have made similar drinks in the past kind of like this that are chocolate and dairy free. The added protein and fiber is always good thing. Read More

I wanted more than a banana for breakfast and I knew I had coconut milk so entered them into the "ingredients" option. This recipe came up. I'm lactose and gluten intolerant so it was perfect. I used almond butter and honey. adding an egg white for extra protein.simple & great recipe! Thanks!! Read More

I made this (while it was blizzarding outside...?) and loved it! I made a few modifications however: I used almond milk (unsweetened) and put 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder in 1 Tbsp. hot chocolate mix. I loved the texture and flavour. A great drink for a hot day... or a cold one in my case.:- ) Read More

We added some egg white (I sneak protein in for my picky eaters) but aside from that small alteration as is - this was an awesome treat for the afternoon. Read More
