Chocolate Strawberry Banana Ice Cream Smoothie

ICE CREAM! Well, sort of. Frozen bananas are the perfect choice to create an enjoyable cold treat! I've ended up just doubling the chocolate part for at least a good 5 days in a row. Bananas are complex carbs which will help you feel fuller for longer, which can especially be difficult in a vegan, or raw vegan diet. 

Chocolate Layer:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup almond milk (vanilla)
  • 1 medjool dates
Strawberry Layer:
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 3/4 cup almond milk (vanilla)
  • 1 dates
  • Blend the layers separately, then layer. The first time I made this I did not freeze the bananas long enough, they were basically just cold bananas. Make sure you freeze the bananas, it will make a huge difference!!
