Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake *

This recipe is gluten-free and optionally soy-free.

1/2 cup chocolate vegan ice cream *
3 TBSP smooth peanut butter (or more if you want a creamier shake)
2 tsp cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla agave **
1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Place the ingredients in your blender - the cocoa should not go in first or last - and blend until smooth according to the directions for your blender. If you do not have directions try pulsing a few times, blending on low for 15 seconds, and then medium until it looks smooth and creamy.

* I use So Delicious coconut milk chocolate ice cream to make mine soy-free. You could use any kind you like but if it is very sweet you may want to omit some or all of the agave.

** The vanilla agave I used is Wholesome Sweeteners brand. If you cannot find vanilla agave regular agave, or another sweetener of your choice, will be fine but you may wish to add a few drops of (gluten-free) vanilla extract.


  1. Oooh, that sounds yummy! I'm going to make this with So Delicious Coconut Unsweetened Milk, too!

  2. 1 cup almond or hemp milk, vanilla flavored.
    1 banana (frozen is nice).
    4 dates.
    3 tbsp cocoa powder.
    *add 3 tbsp peanut butter, if you want.


  3. @ Sarah: Thanks! I hope you enjoy it! Let me know how it turns out using coconut milk instead of almond.

  4. @ Emma's ARC: I happen to dislike bananas and dates in my shakes. With very few exceptions, I don't want anything chocolate to have even a faint fruity taste to it.
