VeganMoFo: Peanut Milk, Banana & Cocoa Smoothie-Shake

Shake-smoothieYou knew this was coming, right?  What’s the first, most logical thing one would create with peanut milk?  Exactly.  Nothing earth-shattering here, folks, just the usual rock-solid-delicious smoothie suspects paired with their new friend, peanut milk, all mixed up together into an irresistible shake-like consistency.  Spoon required.

Hey, you!!  Have you signed up for the Virtual Vegan Potluck?  No?  What are you waiting for?!  I’m looking for vegan and vegan-friendly bloggers to contribute a dish for the world-wide, plant-based Potluck shindig happening on November 1.  Go here to sign up!

      Somer you sound like me and my friends! You know you are great friends when you can call each other “temptress” in good fun. And I agree! I’m thinking of having this for breakfast now. I’m sure I have a few frozen banana’s in the freezer.
      This shake would be perfect with Somer’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. I’m swooning over those too!

        Friends that you can lovingly insult means the best kind of friendship 😉 Oh the combo of the cookie bars and this shake sounds positively dangerous.

    My afternoon sweet tooth is starting to show it’s lovely face, making this smoothie shake extremely irresistible! If only I was at home where my kitchen, and more importantly, my blender is so I could whip one of these beauties up! That’s what weekends are for, right?:-)
