brownie batter smoothie ~vegan~

There is no real reason for this post other than sometimes you just need to drink a brownie!

Truth be told, as kids my best friend Kathryn and I would make brownie batter (with eggs!), pour it in a thermos, jump on our bikes and sip it raw…how gross!!!  It’s a wonder we never got sick!

This smoothie brought me back to the good old days :)

Ingredients
  • 2 cups almond, soy or milk of your choice (add a drop of vanilla extract if using unflavored milk)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 4 dates, pitted
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of raw cacao or cocoa powder
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of coconut manna
Instructions
  1. Blend and enjoy!

I used some coconut manna that I had kicking around the house.  Coconut manna is a butter made of coconut flesh.  You can easily substitute coconut oil or any nut butter of your choice.  I’m sure peanut butter would taste amazing!

Feel free to top with a little coconut whipped cream for fun, it’s the weekend :)
