1. Peel the banana and break it into chunks. Squash the dates and pull out the stones. Roughly chop the dates.
2. Scoop the banana and dates into a blender. Add the hot chocolate or cocoa powder, peanut butter, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour in the almond drink and whizz together till smooth and combined.
3. Pour the mixture into a pan. Set the pan over a medium heat and warm through for a couple of minutes, whisking frequently, till steaming hot and frothy. Pour into mugs. Add vegan marshmallows, if liked, and serve.
4. No blender?
Chop and mash everything together on a large board to make a smooth paste. Scrape the paste into a pan, whisk in the almond drink and gently warm through. Strain the mixture through a sieve before serving. As you’ll be straining out some of the fruit, you might want to add a little agave syrup or sugar to each mugful to sweeten it.
