Incredibly creamy and nourishing chocolate banana shake infused with adaptogens like reishi mushrooms, ashwagandha, and maca powder! Naturally sweetened with dates and rich chocolate flavor. The perfect pick-me-up!
To a high-speed blender add frozen banana, pitted dates, carob or cacao powder, reishi powder, maca powder, ashwagandha, he shou wu, hemp seeds, cinnamon, and coconut milk and blend on high until creamy and smooth. Add more dairy-free milk or a little water as needed if it has trouble blending.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more maca for malty-caramel flavor, carob or cacao for more intense chocolate flavor, or dates for sweetness.
Serve immediately and garnish with additional hemp seeds (optional). Best when fresh. Freeze leftovers into popsicles or into ice cube molds (store for up to 1 month in freezer) and enjoy blended as a smoothie later on.
