A banana dipped in chocolate just has to be one of the best treats around and this chocolate banana smoothie mix offers that wonderfully sinful taste in a glass.
Its also easy to turn this Chocolate Banana 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 noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
1 frozen banana, peeled and sliced
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1/2 cup soy milk
1 Tbsp. honey (or another sweetener of your choice)
1 Tbsp. Chia or Flax seed for just a bit more nutrition
