Here is a time tested combination of chocolate and banana and nuts all blended into a Banana nut chocolate smoothie that makes a great smoothie snack or even a meal replacement.
You can also turn this tasty smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
