Recipe: Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie

Ready to savor the benefits of superfoods? Try out this delicious Green Smoothie recipe that only requires a blender and a passion for health!


  • 1 Frozen Banana: Frozen bananas add natural sweetness and creaminess to the smoothie, while also providing a good dose of potassium, a key mineral for muscle function and recovery.
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Plant-Based Milk (almond, oat, soy, etc.): Plant-based milk provides a calcium and vitamin D boost, while keeping the smoothie dairy-free for those with sensitivities.
  • 1 Scoop Protein Powder: Choose a protein powder you love! Look for one with a good balance of protein content and minimal added sugars. Whey protein is a popular choice, but plant-based options like pea protein or a blend are great alternatives.
  • 1 Tbsp Natural Nut Butter (peanut, almond, cashew): Nut butters add a delicious richness and healthy fats to the smoothie, keeping you feeling fuller for longer. They're also a good source of protein and heart-healthy fats.
  • 1 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: This is where the chocolate magic happens! Opt for unsweetened cocoa powder for pure chocolate flavor without the added sugar.
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional): A touch of vanilla extract adds another layer of complexity to the flavor profile, but it's not essential.
  • 1/4 cup Ice Cubes (optional): If you prefer a thicker and frostier smoothie, add some ice cubes. The frozen banana already adds a nice chill, so this is entirely up to your preference.


  • 1 Tbsp Spinach or Kale (optional): Looking to sneak in some extra greens? A handful of baby spinach or kale will completely blend in and add a hidden boost of vitamins and antioxidants.

Blend all ingredients together. ENJOY!!
