Chocolate Banana Smoothie

I had a few banana posts in waiting because we found these adorable Mini bananas at the grocery store! My kids were so excited to have them.. just because they are different.DSC_0293

What better thing to do with bananas besides making smoothies?  OK, there are lot's, but we really like smoothies too.

This chocolate banana smoothie is a great way to start the day!  100% pure cocoa has many health benefits, (my father in law is convinced eating chocolate is restoring his sight) and you don't need to pay a premium price for the pure stuff.  We get powdered cocoa and add it to things, like smoothies for that extra antioxidant boost.

Chocolate Banana Smoothie Recipe

  • 8 ounces soy milk, or low fat milk.
  • 1 TBL honey
  • 2 bananas (frozen)
  • 1 TBL cocoa powder.

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.

Need something to pass the the time today?

If you want to keep me company tomorrow, on Christmas day, I'll be online.  Wade's working, and my kids will be preoccupied with their new gifts.  So I think I'll blog..LOL.

We LOVE smoothies! My kids can't get enough. Add some cinnamon and peanut butter to this one and it would be right up our alley :)

This was very delicious! Can be eaten for breakfast or any time of the day. Is esp. good on a hot summer day or inbetween meals when it's past lunch and not yet time for dinner and you're hungry. My daughter loved it. I use special dark baking cocoa for the chocolate but you can also use carob a well.

I just started a low sugar diet but fruit is ok. I'm used to having a treat of some sort at the end of the night so I thought I'd try this smoothie. It was soooo good! I even forgot to add the honey and it tasted great! Do you have any other variations? I may be having one of these nightly. ;)

You know what is super delicious??? This banana Ice cream! It has no added sugar and really tastes like ice cream: Good luck on your low sugar.. My sister in law just created a facebook group that I joined, and it's a "no sugar club" :)

Yes, Beth is in my ward! :D I've known I needed to cut down on sugar but this club is the thing that made me commit.

[...] food kick of late. My FAVORITE has been these smoothies I found on this Index of Recipes website: It tastes like a chocolate banana shake and I’m not one for chocolate ice cream or shakes. [...]

This smoothie looks great! I'm loving your site, as I have a picky 2-year-old that I am finding many recipes for. Thank you!
