Decadent & delicious! My bananas weren't frozen, so I added some crushed ice, and I omitted the sugar, since I thought the white chocolate would provide enough sweetness (and it did). I substituted vanilla Kefir for the milk and loved the little tang that it gave. Liked the tiny bits of the chocolate in this smoothie.-15 Feb 2016

Recipe – Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Let me back up – I get stuck in the biggest breakfast ruts. I will eat the same thing every day for weeks on end until I suddenly can’t stand it anymore and need something new.

Several weeks ago when my tastebuds were demanding a change, I sent out a text to a few of my friends asking them what they ate for breakfast. My friend, Laine, texted back a super short recipe and I knew I had found a winner.

Chocolate for breakfast?? Ummmm YES.

The first time I tried this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie I thought maybe someone had accidentally slipped me a Wendy’s Frosty.

It was THAT GOOD.

But the difference between a Wendy’s Frosty and this smoothie is that everything in this recipe is healthy. Woohoo!

  • 2 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
  • 1 heaping spoonful of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 heaping spoonful of peanut butter
  • 1-2 cups Unsweetened Plain Almond Milk
  • Flaxseed (optional)

I hope you and your kids enjoy it too!

Step 1

Add all of the ingredients to the blender in the order listed. Blend on high for at least 2 minutes or until smooth (note: this may take longer if your blender isn't very strong). Scrape down the sides of the blender and add liquid, as needed.

Step 2

If you prefer a thinner consistency, add a few tablespoons of water and blend again. Or, add a couple extra ice cubes for a thicker smoothie. Enjoy!

Nutrition: 229 calories / 11 g fat / 26 g carbs / 7 g fiber / 10 g sugar / 28 g protein


Here are some of my favorite protein sources for smoothies:

Nut butters - any kind of all-natural nut butter but typically almond butter and peanut butter are highest in regards to protein

Hemp seeds - out of the seeds, hemp has the highest protein (3.2g/tbsp)

Chia seeds - another good protein source but less protein compared to hemp seeds (1.7g/tbsp)

Flax seeds - not a lot of protein so I would recommend adding at least 2 tbsps if using (1.3g/tbsp)

Rolled oats - these provide not only extra protein (2.7g/.25 cup), but some extra fiber for that satiating effect

White beans - yes, even white beans which have a very mild taste, can be added to smoothies (4.6g/.25 cup)

As you can see, there are tons of options! The choice of milk will also play a factor too. I prefer soy milk because it contains a comparable amount of protein to cow's milk.


Cacao is raw chocolate in its natural state.

Cacao comes from the seed of an Amazonian fruit tree and is considered one of the highest–if not the highest–antioxidant foods on the planet. It’s full of magnesium, iron, manganese, and chromium and is also extremely high in anandamide (aka the “bliss chemical”). This superfood also contains plant-based protein, good fats & healthy carbs, and can improve cardiovascular health, builds strong bones, is a natural aphrodisiac, and can elevate your mood. What’s not to love?!

When both cacao and cocoa are produced, the fat (i.e. cacao/cocoa butter) is separated from the bean. The difference is that to make cocoa, the bean is first roasted. Cacao is left raw and never roasted, leaving its enzymes and many other nutrients intact. The end product is not mixed with anything else.

On the other hand, with cocoa powder you’ll notice it’s typically listed as a percentage, such as 70% or 80%, usually meaning is 70/80% cocoa powder mixed with milk and/or sugar to produce a sweeter taste. True raw cacao isn’t nearly anywhere as sweet as most conventional cocoa powders, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not delicious. Plus, since it’s so high in antioxidants, you’re doing yourself a favor by consuming its raw chocolatey goodness.

Legend has it that the spelling of cacao comes from way back in the early trade days of people simply misspelling cocoa (or vice versa) and eventually the raw state came to be known as cacao. Who knows if that’s true, but it’s a fun story and seems to make sense. Regardless, when prepared correctly cacao tastes divine and will definitely satisfy your “chocolate tooth” — without the added sugar and dairy that usually comes with chocolate.

You can find raw cacao powder at most natural grocery stores or on Amazon. Keep it in the fridge for an even longer shelf life.


Starbucks Copycat Recipes

  • Greek yogurt- two cups per day can provide protein, calcium, iodine, and potassium while helping you feel full for fewer calories. But maybe more importantly, yogurt provides healthy bacteria for the digestive tract which can affect the entire body.
  • Bananas- are also rich in potassium, fiber and natural sugars. The vitamin C, potassium and other vitamins and minerals bananas contain help to maintain overall good health. Because the fruit’s sugar content is balanced with fiber, it helps maintain a healthy blood glucose level.
  • Almond milk- is an excellent and natural source of vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble antioxidant that helps protect your body from free radical damage ( 6 ). Some varieties are fortified with calcium and vitamin D, which are important nutrients for bone health.

  • Dutch Cocoa Powder- is rich in theobromine, which helps to reduce inflammation and can protect you from diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Since cocoa is rich in phytonutrients but low in fat and sugar, the calories you get from cocoa powder will be packed with healthy chemicals. Dutch Cocoa Powder has had the acidity stripped and there for is darker in color but has less nutritional value than baking cocoa.
  • Agave- has fructans and saponins which improve have an anti-inflammatory function in a body. It also gives a boost to the immune system. It contains inulin which is responsible to decrease your appetite, can improve nutrient absorption, and can provide the benefit of added dietary fiber.

Smoothie 101

  • Invest in a heavy duty blender I’ve used a Blend Tec for well over a century now and I love it! It’s powerful enough to blend frozen fruit and vegetables smooth, smooth, smooth!
  • I prefer using frozen fruits and vegetables in my smoothies so they have a thicker consistency.
  • Freeze extra fruits and vegetables as they are just beginning to turn over-ripe I use gallon plastic zip top freezer bags to toss them in.
  • Freeze fresh produce to use later- I find they last just fine for up to 4 weeks. ie: spinach or mixed salad greens, baby carrots, cucumbers, banana’s broken into four pieces, sliced/cored apples and pears, extra berries, peeled/segmented oranges and clementines, grapes, and the list goes on!
  • Extra nutrient add in’s are always good try adding: vanilla and chocolate protein powders, dry oats, a small handful of nuts, peanut butter, flavored yogurt or kefir, and more.

• Super food add in’s: gogi berries, coconut oil, avocado, acai or cacoa powder, chia or hemp or flax seeds, etc!


Chocolate Almond Breeze Smoothie

Rich & creamy chocolate smoothies made with banana and almond milk. Vegan and Gluten free.

Now that January is over and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I think it’s time to trade in our kale drinks for rich & creamy chocolate-y treats. Because we’ve been good after-all… haven’t we?

Something you might not expect that’s a fixture in our fridge is chocolate almond milk. Jack drinks a mocha with it every morning. And he occasionally makes us milk-less milkshakes (kindly accommodating for my my lactose intolerance). He doesn’t cook often but two of his designated tasks are: 1. Coffee Pour-er, and 2. Blender-man.

This is his most recent blended treat… frozen bananas with chocolate almond milk and gooey almond butter… and a dash of cinnamon for a spicy unexpected twist.
