Chocolate peanut butter banana milkshake with vegan option

In the worst dregs of summer, who doesn't want a rich, delicious milkshake? It's been so hot lately that we've all had ice cream on the brain just about 24/7, but I know better than to consume that much sugar. My body will not thank me for it. That's why I've been experimenting with the latest health nut fad - frozen bananas pulverized into "ice cream." However, this recipe is a little different. It's not just bananas - nope, too easy. I added a little milk so it can be drunk with a straw, some peanut butter for protein, and a little cocoa powder because life deserves chocolate.

This milkshake is so rich and tastes like dessert. You can make it with any milk - for this particular instance I did use dairy, but almond milk is a favorite for this smoothie too. The peanut butter provides a nice boost of protein, making it the perfect post workout snack or even a light supper. Bananas are full of potassium, which is especially important for me to avoid cramping during exercise. Cocoa powder, if you choose to use it, contains magnesium, manganese, iron, and zinc, making it good for your heart and immune system. This smoothie will pack a punch while refreshing you on a hot day!

By the way, clean up is easy - simply fill the empty blender with hot soapy water and turn on for 30 seconds or until all peanut butter is cleared away. Enjoy!
