Chocolate Banana Almond Butter Ice Cream Shake
What I shoved in my face today! I LOVE Almond Butter! Especially when used in a shake!
Almond butter is so yummy and good for you! Who couldn’t eat it right out of the jar…..please! But just to make us feel better let’s make us some ice creamy shake with it!
I am an ice cream eater, shakes and frozen treats are all my fav’s! There is just something so appealing about hanging out with friends and eating ice cream! One could seriously pack on the pounds if you aren’t paying attention. You should make this great treat instead and get your protein while satisfying your sweet tooth! Make sure you have 2 frozen banana’s ahead of time. When you have banana’s that are over ripened, chop them up and place 2 banana’s per bag iin the freezer for sweet treats!
This recipe serves 2 friends 🙂
2 Frozen banana’s
1/2 cup Natural almond butter
1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (just to help it blend, if you want thicker ice cream, use less)
1 Scoop Chocolate protein powder
A handfull of almonds (optional, I like crunchies in my ice cream)
Break up the frozen bananas and place around the sides in the blender for easier blending. Throw the rest of the ingredients into the blender and blend away. I start with only a 1/4 cup of Almond milk and if has a hard time mixing and too thick I add a bit more and scrape everything off of the sides into the mixer, throw in a handfull of almonds and blend until mixed. Add a couple of Almonds to the top and you have a very thick tasty shake!
Depending on the thickness, you could scoop it into a glass for a shake, if you want it more ice cream scoopish place into a freezer safe container and put it in the freezer for about an hour. Either way it is Scrumpch-ilicious!! And the bonus is your protein is included 🙂
For looks and extra yummy add a couple of almonds to the top. Depending on how ripe your banana’s were will be the natural sweetener. Perfect example of clean eating and keeping on track to your healthy lifestyle, but still enjoying your snacks.
