(healthy) choco-nana shake

This isn't your standard chocolate shake. This is sort of a health nut shake. But who cares! It's delicious and you'll love it even more that something this good is also healthy. From the taste, I think you would be surprised that it didn't have milk or ice cream in it.

2 cups filtered water
1 cup raw almonds
3 frozen bananas, sliced into chunks
3 rounded Tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 tsp. sea salt (any salt will do if you don't have sea salt)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 Tablespoons Agave nectar (maple syrup or honey will work too)
2 cups ice

Blend all ingredients until smooth. We weren't able to blend the almonds very fine so we had some crunch in ours, but it didn't bother us at all. Next time I might experiment with grinding the almonds before adding it to the rest of the ingredients.
