Minimalist Baker's superfood shake is made from a blend of ripe and frozen bananas, dates, almond milk and peanut butter. The recipe is a great alternative to traditional breakfasts and can replace pre-workout snacks that are heavy and caloric. In addition to being a source of potassium, this superfood shake also boasts healthy fats, proteins and is a source of antioxidants -- thanks to its cacao powder ingredients.

Once blended, this healthy smoothie is infused with cacao nibs that are a low carb alternative to traditional chocolate chips and is mixed with both hemp and flax seeds. The beverage is also infused with dairy-free chocolate sauce and coconut whipped cream for added flavor. As more millennials embrace an animal-free diet, vegan smoothies and desserts are increasing in demand and popularity. This particular recipe is easy to re-create and is a tasty and nutritious breakfast option.
