Ultra Thick Chocolate Shake

4 cups frozen bananas, cut into 2-inch chunks
1 cup soy milk, rice milk, or other non-dairy milk of choice
3 T. cocoa or carob powder
2 T. maple syrup
1 t. vanilla

Remove the frozen banana chunks from the freezer and allow them to thaw for 5-10 minutes to soften slightly. Place the banana chunks in a blender, along with the remaining ingredients, and process for 2-3 minutes to thoroughly puree and blend flavors. Serve immediately.

*Variation: add additional soy milk if you desire a thinner shake, or add almond or peppermint extract to vary the flavor, or add a little nut butter of choice for added flavor and creaminess.

Yield: 4 Cups
