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…

    love the melted banana trick!!! i usually put my banana in the microwave (too lazy for the stove) for a minute then put it in my oats to cook in the microwave… i swear it comes out carmelized or something, because it makes the oats so much sweeter! i hate bananas in the raw form (weird i know) unless smothered in nut butter or melted in oats.
