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!

Virtual Vegan Potluck

Peanut Milk, Banana & Cocoa Smoothie-Shake
Makes enough for 2 

~1 cup homemade peanut milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. cocoa
1/4 cup plain coconut milk yogurt
4 dates, chopped
3 ripe bananas, cut into chunks and frozen

cacao nibs & chopped unsalted peanuts, for garnish

Place all ingredients except for cacao nibs and peanuts in a high-powered blender.  Blend until smooth, thick and creamy – add more peanut milk if mixture is too thick.

    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?:-)

  10. As soon as I saw the photo at the top, I thought to myself, Kel certainly picked a fine lady there! This looks magnificent, it would be a wonderful pudding.

  11. Hehe I wasn’t too far off with my comment about chocolate peanut milk! It was a very logical and delicious progression :)
