SOTD: Chocolate Banana

I have decided this is the best protein shake/smoothie. So, you're welcome. It made my jelloy arms and legs happy post-workout this morning. Sorry there's no picture, I was running late and drank it in the car on the way to work.

Chocolate Banana Smoothie
Put these things in a blender and blend:
1 banana, chunked up and frozen
1 scoop vanilla protein shake powder
Whole milk
1 spoonful of unsweetened cocoa powder

Yes, I said unsweetened. Stay with me here.

Cocoa is good for you (antioxidants and all that crap) and with the banana and the shake mix, there's more than enough sweetness in there already, so the cocoa does a nice job of cutting through some of that. It could only have been better if it had hidden kale in it, and I might try it with coconut milk next time to cut out the dairy. The fact the banana is frozen gives it the perfect smoothie consistency, and everyone loves chocolate + banana (except my mom), so dessert-like smoothie for breakfast? Win win winny win win.

  1. I think I have a frozen banana in the freezer. I'm so on this. Sounds great.
