Our recipe is a little simpler - and I prefer it:
CHOCOLATE BANANA SMOOTHIES
Makes 3 to 4 cups of milkshake
4 or 5 organic bananas depending on size
two cups of cold organic rice milk
one large, heaped spoon of smooth organic peanut butter
Two tablespoons of cocoa powder
Blend all ingredients together.
Our smoothies are a much darker brown, and we drink them as our breakfast. We usually end up with a little more than a glass each, and I generally only get hungry again by around midday! It's way more filling than cereal, and technically healthy albeit heavy on the carbs.

3 bananas, sliced and frozen
2 tbsp chocolate peanut butter
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
whipped coconut cream and sprinkles for serving, optional
Combine bananas, peanut butter, chocolate chips, vanilla and 1/2 cup of your almond milk in a high-quality blender. Blend until smooth (you will likely need to stop and stir--it will be very thick). Slowly, add more milk until milkshake has reached your desired consistency. Serve immediately. Top with whipped cream/whipped coconut cream and sprinkles if desired.
