vegan "milkshake"

marian spent last saturday at a friend's house.
while she was there, she called me to gush,
"they eat like WE do!"
which is very rare in these parts.

her friend's mother made them this milkshake,
and marian, a girl after my own heart,
made sure to get the recipe.

yes, it's vegan, but it is so delicious
that everyone will love it.
i think you could call it peanut butter chocolate.

i am dedicating this post 
to my vegan friend, emily,
and my vegan cousin, stephanie.
☼cheers, ya'll!☼

this recipe is for 1 serving.
i tripled the recipe and my blender was full.

                  vegan milkshake 
                          8 oz almond milk
                          1 banana
                          1 Tbs peanut butter
                          1 Tbs agave
                          1 Tbs cacao nibs
                          1 tsp vanilla
                          1 cup ice

add all ingredients to blender & blend well.

using frozen bananas will make a thicker shake.

by all means, substitute almond butter
for the peanut butter if you prefer.

the cacao nibs are little crunchy bits 
that seem like frozen chocolate chips.
