Get Your Chocolate Fix On

Fierce chocolate cravings today demanded that I make the kids and I some banana-fudgesicle milkshakes for a treat! It was a complete experiment and I wish I would have measured exact amounts so I could replicate it exactly! This recipe should be pretty close. It's a not-AS-bad-for-you-milkshake. Adjust any amounts to your taste...I did...

2 bananas (could do 3 for more banana flavor)
2 ripe avacados
2 cups almond milk (ours is homemade so it is unsweetened)--you could also use regular milk
3/4 c. dutch cocoa powder (appx.)
1 tsp. vanilla
ice to fill rest of blender
appx. 1/2-1 c. honey (sweeten to your taste)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (if desired)
pinch salt

Blend all together in high powered blender. Don't be put off by the avacados. They make a beautiful smooth and creamy consistency and you don't even know they're there! Not to mention that because of the avacados and bananas, this shake is loaded with potassium and other good-for-you ingredients. It's very filling so we had enough left over to pour the rest in some popsicle molds and pop them in the freezer for fudgsicles later. YUM.O.
