This chocolate banana shake is a throwback to the “shakes” my mom used to make me when I was a child. If you’re not eating chocolate, you can substitute carob and it is equally delicious! Whenever I make this shake, it reminds me of being a little kid, excitedly waiting for a sweet treat. I didn’t get very many sweets when I was little, so any time my mom would make me a shake, I loved it! This shake is so rich, creamy, and full of flavor. If you’re extra adventurous you can toss a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter or almond butter in it for an extra tasty treat!

1 tablespoon maple syrup
6 drops vanilla cream stevia
1 large ripe banana
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Throw all the ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until you reach your desired consistency. Add more ice for a thick, ice cream-like shake, or less ice for a thinner version.
