It’s true you won’t see a lot of peanut butter around here (on my website and in my recipes) – I prefer almond butter for many reasons. However, I had some organic all-natural PB kicking around and, after a conversation with another runner about attempting to mimic a certain cafe’s peanut butter chocolate shake, I knew exactly what I had to do with it.
Success! Thick and creamy with the taste of chocolate and peanut butter – serious yum.
Makes 1 large or 2 small servings.
- ¾ cup coconut water
- 2 pitted mejool dates
- 1 ripe banana (or another 2 medjool dates)
- 1 Tbsp raw cacao powder
- 1 heaping Tbsp all natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
- 1 Tbsp hemp hearts
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp coconut flakes
- 8 ice cubes
- raw cacao nibs (for garnish)
Place coconut water, dates and cocoa in a high-powered blender and blend on high until smooth. Then add peanut butter, hemp seeds, chia seeds, coconut flakes, banana and ice, and blend on high once again until smooth. Garnish with raw cacao nibs. Enjoy immediately.
