How could this not be good though? It has three of the best flavors, banana, peanut butter and chocolate all together in one decadent morning treat.

Note that the sweetness of this smoothie comes from the ripeness of the bananas so be sure to use some that are well ripened. If you still would like it a little bit sweeter you could add in a little honey or cut back a touch on the cocoa powder.


This is one creamy, protein rich smoothie you are going to love!

    • Meredith: I make one very similar. 1 frozen banana. 1/4 cup 1% milk. 1 tbsp cocoa powder. 1 tbsp peanut butter. Blend together.

      37 g carbs. 8 g protein. 10 g fat. 6 g fiber. 238 calories.

      The whole foods and protein fiber in this will help the carbs be absorbed more slowly as well! Hope this is helpful! July 19, 2016 at 5:28am Reply
