Healthy & Creamy Chocolate Smoothie


Some days at any given time I start craving something strawberry or something chocolate.  Instead of reaching for the chocolate bar, I make myself this smoothie and it hits the spot. For this reason I always have cacao or carob powder handy. Pounds of it… It might sound like a lot but when you have a chocolate loving family, you always have to be prepared.

This recipes makes the perfect breakfast for adults and little ones. If you feel like having a smaller portion just share it with someone and enjoy it as a movie snack.

Serves: 1 big smoothie


2 frozen bananas

1.5 cup of almond/ coconut/ soy milk

1 Tbsp of cacao/carob powder

1 tbsp of almond butter

1 tbsp of hemp seeds * optional but recommended for a boost of  Omega -3s and protein

1/2 tsp of vanilla extract ( or too taste if you prefer. Skip if you are using vanilla nut milk)


Blend  all the ingredients together and top with your toppings of choice. I used sliced bananas, chia seeds and hazelnuts.

    Hi Claudia, this looks very yummy. Can the recipe be made with fresh bananas instead of frozen or does it have to be frozen?

      Hi Susan! The reason I like to use frozen bananas is because when you freeze bananas they become extra creamy like ice cream! You can make it with fresh bananas but it will be a very thin smoothie. I would recommend using frozen bananas , it makes a very big difference. Once you try it , you will love it! I will be posting a banana ice cream recipe soon as well :)
