Chocolate Banana Smoothie

Print Friendly

This recipe is the perfect breakfast, snack, or dessert. It combines tasteful and nutritious elements such as Greek yogurt, a frozen banana, vanilla extract, almond milk, and peanut butter. Plus, it’s garnished with whipped cream and cocoa powder. This is a satisfying smoothie you can’t go wrong with.

How many times have you wished that healthy food would taste better or that there was a nutritious option to milkshakes? This is it. This smoothie is packed with flavor. Plus, bananas are an excellent de-stress aid and good for muscles, since they contain a high amount of potassium. Greek yogurt is also a great addition to this smoothie, as it’s not only super creamy, it’s also high in protein, and a good source for calcium. Peanut butter is one of those ingredients that either you love or you’re allergic too. So either skip it or mix it in, either way, it’s up to you, and the smoothie will taste delicious.

When you blend this all together you will have a special treat you don’t have to feel guilty about. It doesn’t have any added sugar. Plus, you can forgo the ice cream with the added fat. Enjoy a delicious smoothie that’s good enough for breakfast or dessert. Top it with your favorite garnishes or try the suggested choices: whipped cream and cocoa powder. Who says healthy has to taste bad?
