Only 6 ingredients – frozen banana slices, almond milk, almond butter, ice, unsweetened cocoa powder, and vanilla. No added sugar in this mockshake except the sugar found naturally in the products such as the banana. I like to use almond milk, but you could just as easily use coconut milk or regular milk. For a dairy free version, skip the whip cream. :) I use homemade almond butter in my mockshakes, but peanut butter is great (such as a natural version with no sugar or salt) or use any kind of nut butter.

Healthy Chocolate Mockshake Recipe | snappygourmet.comYou should definitely be sure to use FROZEN banana slices. You could use a regular banana but the consistency of the Chocolate Mockshake will be very different. You can also try different brands of unsweetened cocoa powder for a different taste. Feel free to add in some of your other favorite add ins like flax seed, protein powder, etc. And that’s it! A great healthy snack that will fill you up for hours!

Notes
SNAPPY TIPS: Make sure your banana slices are really frozen for best results.

SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: You can substitute any kind of nut butter for the almond butter and any kind of milk for the almond milk. Taste will vary greatly depending on what you substitute. I personally think coconut milk and peanut butter is the best.
