sliced bananas, coconut whip, shredded coconut, chia seeds, or cacao nibs for garnish(optional)
Soak dates in water for 30 minutes to soften them up.
Add dates, bananas, cocoa powder, coconut milk, vanilla, and water to a blender.
Blend until smooth. (I use my NutriBullet for this step)
Pour mixture into a large bowl or container.
Stir in chia seeds.
Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight so it can set.
Garnish with the (optional) topping of your choice.

Canned coconut milk must be used, not the coconut milk that comes in cartons.
I use full fat coconut milk in this recipe, but light coconut milk can also be used. If using light coconut milk, cut back on the water being added to the recipe. Calorie count listed above is the recipe made with full fat coconut milk.
