Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 roasted banana *see instructions
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
  • 8 almonds finely chopped
  • 1 date pitted and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • cups ice cubes

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 300 °F (150° C). Line a baking tray with parchment paper or foil.
  • Rinse the unpeeled banana and transfer it to the baking tray. Using the tines of a fork, poke a few sets of holes in the banana peel. Bake for 15-25 minutes, or until the skins are black and shiny.
  • When the banana is cool enough to handle, slice the peel and scoop the roasted banana into the blender. Make sure that the banana is cool before adding the other ingredients. *see note 1
  • Add all of the ingredients except the ice to the blender and blend until smooth. Add the ice and blend until thick and creamy. Serve immediately.

Notes

  1. I like to batch roast bananas and freeze them. To freeze, just allow them to cool, scoop out the insides and freeze for two hours on a parchment lined baking sheet in individual servings. Transfer the frozen banana portions to reusable freezer bags and mark them with the date.
