Nutty Banana and Chocolate Smoothie

I'm really into smoothies at the moment, oh and smoothie bowls too - they are so good, but let's save them for another post. This smoothie is my latest obsession. It's strange because I never used to really like chocolate milk but over the past year or so I've found myself really enjoying chocolate smoothies and milkshakes. I think it was the Rebel Kitchen chocolate mylk that started this (if you haven't tried it, you need to because it is so, so delicious!) but those little cartons can be so expensive so I started making my own at home (and stocking up on the Rebel Kitchen ones when they are on offer, because  I couldn't give them up completely, of course!).

I love this smoothie because it's so chocolatey but also contains lots of fruit goodness and a nutty twist. The almond butter and milk make it so creamy while the bananas and dates add sweetness and the oats make it more filling than a purely fruit based smoothie. Making this was actually one of those times when I really surprised myself with how good the recipe actually was, anyone else get this? I really hope you will enjoy it as much as I do! I'd say the recipe would serve one if you were having it for breakfast or lunch, or two for more of a snack.
