I remember growing up eating chocolate covered banana’s. I still love anything that has chocolate and banana mixed together, which is probably why I came up with the Chocolate Covered Banana Smoothie.
I really think this is one of my all-time favorite smoothies. I feel like I’m drinking dessert in a glass, when really I’m getting tons of nutrition.
My kids think they are getting a special treat, which I love! They are actually getting fruits, protein and calcium. This shake is a win-win! I’m happy, kids are happy and life is good. This is also one of my favorite shakes to go to when I have a craving for something sweet. The chocolate and the banana really take care of any sweet tooth I might have. If your craving something a little more tropical I suggest the Orange Banana Yogurt Smoothie
. This is another smoothie that I enjoy on hot summer days.
1/2 cup silken tofu
1/2 cup soymilk
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon honey
Slice banana and freeze until firm. Blend tofu, soymilk, cocoa and honey in a blender until smooth.
With the motor running, add the banana slices through the hole in the lid and continue to puree until smooth.
