Ingredients: chocolate shake
½ cup black beans
1 small mashed banana (1/4 cup approx)
3 tbs date paste (or 4 softened dates)
A pinch of stevia to taste
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
Approx 2 cups milk of choice (I’ve tried with both almond and soy)
1 tbs melted coconut oil
Note for a chocolate pudding reduce the milk to 1 ½ cups and increase coconut oil to 2 tbs)
Process the beans, banana and dates until you have a thick smooth paste. Add remaining ingredients and blend until very smooth. Pour into serving glasses or bowls and chill for approx 30 minutes until thickened. If serving as a shake strain through a sieve.
Serve in tall glasses or short bowls...perfect with a coconut cream topping... recipe to come next week! sorry to make you wait :-)
