The sweetness of the bananas in this smoothie means you don't need to add any sugar to sweeten the cocoa. This is my go-to for a midday energy boost and kids love it too.

It is my first time doing it and I really liked it. I don t like bananas so instead I added an egg and it gave the milkshake a little more of texture. For next time though I m taking out the ice. I think the ice is an unnecessary extra. Read More

I gave this 2 stars (I didn't like it) because it needs a little sweetener and less banana. Read More

I made this modified for allergies. Used the general measurements but eye-balled them. 2 small bananas handful of ice cocoa powder almond milk and almond butter. Didn t add the vanilla as I don t like the taste. My smoothie maker emulsified the ice so it was more of a cold drink. Next time I will use frozen bananas and blend a little less so it has more of a frozen consistency! Thanks so much for a great recipe! Can t wait to make again. Love a good protein smoothie that is all natural and affordable! Read More
