This is pretty good, really.
I love ice cream, and I am not looking for ways, personally, to avoid it. Much ice cream is gluten free, which--along with chocolate--makes for a very happy state of affairs.
However, my daughter is dairy-intolerant. She also loves milkshakes, but (as the saying goes) they do not love her.
So, in three quite simple ingredients, this:
Dairy Free Chocolate Shake
*3/4 cup vanilla flavored almond milk
(not unsweetened... it usually comes sweetened,
and this is what you want)
*1 frozen (ripe) banana
(see this post for instructions on freezing bananas)
*1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
(sometimes known as baking cocoa)
Blend together in your blender until smooth. Make sure it is smooth, and the banana is not the least bit chunky. Consume immediately while it is at its very coldest.
