  1. Combine almond milk, banana, dark chocolate, and protein powder in a blender; blend until smooth.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • To make homemade almond milk: Soak 1 cup raw almonds in a bowl with 2 cups water, 8 hours to overnight. Transfer almonds and water to a blender and blend until it reaches a pasty consistency. Pour mixture through a cheesecloth-lined strainer into a bowl, squeezing excess liquid out of the almond meal. The remaining almond meal can be used in baking after it has been dried out a bit.
  • If making homemade almond milk, total time increases to about 10 hours to allow almonds to soak completely, so start the night before.

i didn't change anything i WILL make it again.

I used a frozen banana, also used 1/2 tbs of Nesquick choc syrup but will not if I made it again. I just think any chocolate is extra. Its very tasty without it.

This was good. I decided to use chocolate syrup in place of the chocolate. Made it easier to blend.

When I was making the smoothie I noticed that it wasn't clumping together like it should, so I added about a cup of ice and it was fine. All in all this is one of my new favorite recipes.

A delicious breakfast this morning! I used a frozen banana because I prefer really cold thick smoothies, and I used 1.5 oz Lily's chocolate chips to keep it sugar free.
