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!

Ingredients for a chocolate banana shake in a blender

What You Need To Make This Banana Shake;

  • Overripe bananas
  • Almond milk
  • Ice
  • Peanut butter
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Vanilla extract

Why Overripe Bananas?

As bananas ripen they get sweeter and sweeter. There are two benefits of using them in this shake, one you don’t need to throw away your overripe bananas and waste food. Two, the sweetness from the bananas helps sweeten this shake naturally which is always great. If you need extra sweetness go for honey or another natural sweetener to keep this banana shake as healthy as can be!

  • Jo: Hi! My daughter loves this smoothie and it finally feels like a win after many “all done” hands at the table. Just wondering, this serving is a lot for one sitting for her, how long can it sit in the fridge before it goes bad? Thanks for the help! November 4, 2018 at 2:47pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’d probably freeze it for best results then let it thaw a day in advance. It should keep frozen for a few weeks. November 9, 2018 at 2:37pm Reply
