Chocolate Banana Milkshake

We had a few dicey days when there were no chocolate chips in the house.  I normally keep track of important things like that.  Especially since I'm the only one in this house who eats chocolate.   Be sufficiently horrified at that realization now.  Thankfully, we are now stocked back up and all is well.
There's a "recipe" bouncing around the internet for banana soft serve.  All you do is stick frozen banana chunks in the food processor and let it whirl until it makes a creamy frozen treat akin to soft serve ice cream.  I had already dragged my food processor out and put it away today, so I went for the blender out of sheer laziness.  
Into the mix went chunks of a frozen banana.  A handful of chocolate chips.  And enough almond milk (any milk will do) to make the blender work.

Blend for about 10 seconds until the bananas are all creamy and the chocolate chips are chopped.
I topped mine with a few more chocolate chips to pretty it up.

 And then decided what it really needed was a dollop of whipped cream.
And then I ate it with a spoon.

There you have it, an ice cream free milkshake.
