Chocolate Banana Smoothie (healthy and gluten-free)
Simple. Healthy. Delicious. ‘Nuf said….
1 cup milk (cow, goat, coconut, almond, rice…)
1/4 cup plain yogurt- optional
2 large frozen bananas
1-2 tablespoons natural peanut butter or almond butter
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
ice cubes -optional
Blend all ingredients well (I use a high speed vitamix blender), adding ice to produce desired consistency.
If you need it a bit sweeter, add some honey. If you have a favorite protein powder, you can add that too. No nut butter? Still works great without it.
Best enjoyed on a hot day while lounging in a deck chair with a good book…
