Vegan Chocolate Shake - Yummy

I've been "trying" to eat healthy and stick to a plant-based diet.  (I say "trying" because I haven't stuck to it 100%, I'm human!)  And I do have a sweet tooth! 

One of my favorite things to make recently is a Chocolate Shake!  I love, love, love this!  It's like the bad Chocolate shakes I would get at Burgerville, but only healthier :)

And it's super easy to make.  I don't even really measure, I just throw things in my Vitamix.  But I'll give you an estimate of the ratios I use...the great thing is you can adjust it according to your taste!

I put about a CUP of Almond Milk in the Vitamix.  Then I add 1/2 to 1 frozen banana (depending on my mood).  Then I put in 1-3 TB of Cocoa powder, again depending on how "chocolate-y"
 I want it.  Then I add 2-3 TB of Maple Syrup (depending on how sweet I want it) and here's the clencher...I add a TB of peanut butter, almond butter or cashew butter.  I'm salivating just thinking about it.  Then I mix it thoroughly, then add about 1/2 to 1 cup of ice, mix again and pour!

I love, love, love this.  Maybe you will too!  I think I'm going to go make one now!
