3 cups almond, coconut, or rice milk, unsweetened
2 frozen bananas
2 tablespoons raw cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons almond or peanut butter (optional)
1 tablespoon ground chia or flax seeds
1/2 teaspoon agave nectar, maple syrup, or brown rice syrup
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla or almond extract
pinch sea salt

Put all of the ingredients into a blender and process until smooth. Serve immediately.
Make it more chocolaty by adding an extra 1/2 tablespoon of cocoa powder.
Add a scoop of whey protein powder for more protein.
